Need an evaluation: You have a knee Ed fusion, and swelling in the back is a Baker cyst, and that is compressing on certain structures. There are other things I can mimic this. You need to have imaging, and evaluation, fluid removed from the knee, and a good idea of what the internal structural problems that may be compressing the nerve or vascular structures in the back of the knee ...Read more

Have it evaluated.: You may have fractured it. Fractures usually need to be immobilized with a splint, cast, or rigid walking boot depending on the location of the injury.

My right back calf muscle feels  tight and sore and  numbness tingling  in foot and ankle area?

Serious: Sounds like you have a compartment syndrome. This means swelling in your lower leg compressing the nerves thus contributing to the numbness. This could be so serious as to be thrombophlebitis. This is a very serious condition. Can lead to blood clots. See someone immediately. ...Read more

Toes bend backwards and the arch of the foot twists, ankle becomes rigid and swells at line of ligament, can't walk. Restless leg syndrome?

Toes bend backwards and the arch of the foot twists, ankle becomes rigid and swells at line of ligament, can't walk.  Restless leg syndrome?

Doubt it: This sounds more like carpo-pedal spasm, or more simply "charley horses." the muscles of the ankle and wrist are prone to these problems, which can come on spontaneously for no reason, or can be associated with excessive muscle activity in exercise without adequate stretching, as well as too low a level of either potassium, calcium or magnesium in the blood. If it is recurrent, see your doctor. ...Read more

Foot problem or piched nerve in back? Pain in foot when standing. When lift foot off ground pain goes away? Mri of foot normal. Pinched nerve in back

Devil in details.: Not quite enough information to help a whole lot. The pain could be due a nerve problem in the foot. The increased pressure with standing might be affecting a nerve. The exact location and type of pain are essential to solving the problem. The back could also be involved. To remove all doubt, seek an evaluation by a neurologist, orthopedic surgeon or a podiatrist. Maybe even all three. ...Read more

6 days post ankle sprain, my foot ankle and bottom of leg go numb. Especially if i stand on it for a whilst. No fracture or torn ligaments only sprain?

6 days post ankle sprain, my foot ankle and bottom of leg go numb. Especially if i stand on it for a whilst. No fracture or torn ligaments only sprain?

Ankle Sprain: An ankle sprain is really a misnomer in that there are typically ligaments torn (partially or fully) around the ankle. The tearing from those ligaments may cause swelling (mild to severe) and the swelling may impinge on the surrounding skin nerves. This may be causing the numbness, especially when standing because fluid naturally builds up lower with gravity. Hope this helps, good luck! ...Read more

Sprained ankle on 11-13 swelling not going down foot cold and pale pain in calf and thigh. On crutches and off foot entirely. Pain unbearable at times?

See a specialist: You don't mention having it properly examined. In addition to a full examination, proper diagnostic testing including X-rays and perhaps an MRI will be useful. The condition (if occurred on Nov 13) is more than 6 weeks. The fact that you remain on crutches is of concern. See an orthopedist or podiatrist to have a proper assessment made. ...Read more

MRI: Which part of the body was the MRI performed? It should be have been done at the lumbo sacral region of your low back. Sound like a nerve root compression. You may require an epidural block. Apply ice to your low back to see if symptoms improve for now along with an anti inflammatory for pain if not allergic. ...Read more
