    Muay Thai...shin is KILLING me.

    I have benn going to Muay Thai practice for about a month now, and my right shin is pretty damn painful. There is no bruise or anything, just a lump. Even soft hits through my foam shinguard are excruciating.

    I don't want to take a week off to let it heal, though. Is there anything I can do to minimize the pain, toughen it up, or make it heal faster?. Left shin seems fine. Sore but useable.

    Have you taken any hard hits with it ?

    Anyway, this is my advice:

    1. Take a week off training. Like it or not it, sounds like your body is telling you to rest and heal so you should listen to it. Taking a week off is no big deal in the grand scheme of things. Martial arts will still be there for you next week.

    2. Increase calcium intake. That means milk and also lush green vegetables like brocoli. Yes they are rich in calcium.

    3. After taking one week of, ease off the sparring at first.

    4. If your still having problems - go see a doctor.

    This is bullshit. The lumpy shins thing happens to most people when they start, man up and keep kicking. Things like Thai Ointment will help you out on the "HOLY **** THAT STINGS" side of things.

    This is all completely normal.

    Well it would've been nice to mention that he should be sucking it straight from the udder.

    Yeah..I shin kicked my partner's knee pretty hard. Then instead of stopping, I shin kicked him again 2 minutes later. Then I HAD to stop.

    I will look into this "Thai Ointment" you speak of. I have no intention of stopping training right now. I have just gotten to the point where I can get through a practice and not be too weak to be worth **** the next day.

    Muay Thai is freaking painful.

    Back when my shins still knew this "pain" of which you speak, I would apply Blue Stop ointment (Tiger Balm is good as well, so I hear) before training. I also acquired leather shinguards and wore them even for working the Thaipads. I layed off the sparring completely until healed.
