Pain in tibia bone

Yesterday a sharp surface hit my tibia bone.  The impact was enough that it brought tears to my eyes. Should I consider it as a shin splints which heals on its own or should I get the x-ray done

if you are able to bear weight and there is no swelling and all joint movements are normal just do ice packs and take a painkiller. if pain subsided u dint require a X-ray otherwise get it done
