I hit my shin pretty hard on a pole a couple weeks ago while practicing and the pain hasn't gone away...any thoughts or suggestions?

You probably damaged the periosteum of your shin (the layer around your bone). It'll take a while before it becomes a boney lump, over time it'll disappear.
You can get shin guards for riding.
