    Bone Pain in Shin -- Please Help!

    I am a 25 year old female in perfect health. I exercise regularly and eat well. In April I was serving at a high volume restaurant and running about 3 miles per day. I began to experience leg pain on my right tibia. I suspected shin splints and then the pain continued and got worse. I had an x-ray in June that found nothing. I went to a Sport's Medicine doctor in August who looked at my x-ray and gave me the ice and Advil speech.The pain went away in September and then came back in full force only after a trip out of state to a music festival where the leg was overused. Still in pain I went to another doctor who did a blood test, MRI, and chest x-ray. My chest x-ray was completely clear, my blood test was normal and there were no abnormalities in my ALP level or my red/white cell count. My MRI however, is showing what the doctor describes as a "zebra" or something strange and unusual. He said there is something in/on my bone, perhaps in my marrow, from halfway down my shin to right where the tibia stops at the knee surrounded by inflammation. I am going to an orthopedic specialist later in the month, but I was looking for some insight. Symptoms include: pain, some visible inflammation, sometimes warm, sometimes tender to the touch, and sometimes stiff which causes problems when doing the steps. Any help would be appreciated as this seems to be a mystery at this point.
