My right shin has been hurting me a lot for 8 months. On January 1st I happened to be out jogging and I fell and skinned both of my knees really badly. The right knee way worse, with bad road rash. I noticed the next day that the shin pain went away, even now that that knee skin is pretty much healed 3 weeks in. I would say it’s classic symptom imperative, however nothing new has taken it’s place, thank goodness! Shin is pain free. All I can figure is that the real road rash injury was enough of a distraction that the shin gave up?
