Shin splints typically develop after vigrous physical activity. They are often associated with running. Simple measures can relieve the pain of shin splints. Rest, ice, and stretching often help. 1) Rest. Because shin splints are typically caused by overuse, standard treatment includes several weeks of rest from the activity that caused the pain. Lower impact types of aerobic activity can be substituted during your recovery, such as swimming, using a stationary bike, or an elliptical trainer. 2) Ice. Use cold packs for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day. Do not apply ice directly to the skin. 3) Compression. Wearing an elastic compression bandage may prevent additional swelling. 4) Supportive shoes. Wearing shoes with good cushioning during daily activities will help reduce stress in your shins. 5) Flexibility exercises. Stretching your lower leg muscles may make your shins feel better. Very few people need surgery for shin splints. Surgery has been done in very severe cases that do not respond to nonsurgical treatment.

It might be due to less salt in the blood that might be the reason for you to have cramp during the activity. Take good diet which will help to have good muscle bulk and strength, do some warm up exercises before going for walking or running.
