Pains in shins just below knee early hou
My husband has been suffering from pain in both or one shin in the early hours of the morning. Tried anti-inflammatories, taking Gucosamine twice a day, but notning seems to help, it is also not consistent ie not every day but most mornings, and never during the day.

Thanks Jenny

Dear Jenny
It can be due to overexertion of the legs, or due to bone marrow problems or magnesium or calcium shortage or even shin splints. I think your GP must have a look to try and identify the cause and treat that.
