Calf discomfort: One possibility is congestion in the calf veins which builds up during the day's activity on your feet. Elevating the leg should relieve that discomfort,however. Irritability of calf nerves or muscles may be a cause. A blood clot in a calf vein usually is accompanied by swelling and tenderness. It's best to have a physician examine your leg and, if deemed advisable, get an ultrasound of the veins ...Read more

Typically if there is nerve compression somewhere along the course of the nerve as it passes through tissues or at the level of the spine itself, this sensation can occur. If associated with weakness or pain it may be a spinal disc issue causing compression on a nerve. ...Read more

Numbness : Numbness that shoots from the big toe up the lower limb and triggered by movement of the toe sounds like neuritis. Neuritis is caused by irritation or injury to a nerve. In this case, the involved nerve could be one of the digital (that's digit as in toes) nerves to the big toe, the medial plantar nerve, or the posterior tibial nerve. Since feet take such a beating, from things including the activities we do and the things we wear on our feet, it is not surprising that the nerves in our feet can be injured. Digital nerves can sometimes become swollen, causing something called morton's neuroma. The medial plantar nerve can be hurt by badly-fitting arch supports. The posterior tibial nerve can get pinched at the ankle, something called tarsal tunnel syndrome. Foot nerves can also be made more liable to injury by other conditions, like diabetes and vascular disease. Podiatrists, who specialize in diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the feet, may be a good resource for foot nerve injuries. ...Read more

Doctor says I have a calf muscle tear. Could that cause foot to have a pulse/vibrations feeling? And soreness in all of calf?

Yes: Energy to cause a muscle tear would have the ability to cause injury to the surrounding nerves and blood vessels. The muscles in the lower leg are long and any tear to a calf muscle could hurt through to the lower leg. Depending on what and how large the tear, your age and health will effect the best option for you. Your podiatrist or orthopedist will be able to advertise you. ...Read more
