The pain location that you've mentioned is a common site for bone stress injuries including stress fracture and some of the symptoms that you've mentioned may be consistent with a stress fracture.
But a proper diagnosis from hands on assessment is needed to get you heading in the right direction. I'd suggest you find a sports doc or sports physio familiar with runners to get some answers. Not saying that the GP has missed the diagnosis but a second opinion is wise if you have your doubts about the current approach.

I certainly wouldn't keep training on it until you have a diagnosis - if it's a large tib.post. tear for example with fluid collection and fibre retraction, it could be seriously problematic if you don't get it fixed properly. Likewise, if it's a stressy then you will make it worse and your recovery will be longer.
