Pain tingling in calf and pain in arch of foot. Numbness in Achilles. Slight swelling at base of calf muscle in right leg. Any ideas what's wrong?

Calf pain: Can be several things:
1. tingling and numbness usually represent nerve pain - the sural nerve runs behind the calf muscle and could be pinched
2. the pain in the arch could be tednonitis - the posterior tibial tendon - when injured it can cause deep calf soreness and arch pain especially behind the ankle area.

Pain in right upper thigh slightly abv knee (inner side) and calf with foot numbness on and off and extreme knee pain when sitting, no clots, ideas?

Pain in right upper thigh slightly abv knee (inner side) and calf with foot numbness on and off and extreme knee pain when sitting, no clots, ideas?

Knee, hip, back: If the thigh problem is immediately above the knee this could be a knee problem (cartilage, bakers cyst, joint problem). Knee pain rarely radiates up the leg. Anything higher up is unlikely to be knee. This could also be referred pain from the hip or back. A good physical examination by someone experienced with these problems should give you the answer. ...Read more

Nerve, vein or muscle: Are you certain that a vein is the culprit? With associated numbness the problem could be with a pinched nerve from a spinal disorder like a disc problem. It's best to have your physician examine you and order the appropriate tests such as ultrasound of the leg veins or MRI of the spine if necessary. ...Read more

I hve buzzing in my foot, calf pain and my middle three toes are numb on left side. Any ideas?

Sounds like nerve: Most likely condition would be a pinched nerve. The nerves that supply the feet stem from nerve branches traveling from the leg. The "pinch" could be from the back at its root, but it an also be locally due to musculature. Another thing to be checked is circulation because if blood flow is hampered to a an area, it can cause pain and reduce function in the nerves. Get checked properly. ...Read more

My bf has raised veins on his entire left leg and left foot numbness, he is 30years old and has smoked for 20+ years. What could it be?

Tobacco and kids: I get concerned about parental influence when I hear about young kids getting ahold of cigarettes. The body is not built to withstand abuse from smoking at any age, but effects on growing children are even more worrisome. Long-time smokers can develop many leg problems, including vein thrombosis (clot), neuropathy or "poor circulation". It is best to see a physician asap for diagnosis, treatment. ...Read more

Pain: lower back, thigh, one leg. Behind knee. Inner thigh. Tingling & numbness in foot. Lost control on my bladder once 2day. No sleep bc of pain.??

Sounds serious...: When a person loses control of the bladder, but was fine before... that's a problem. When combined with neurological symptoms in the legs or lower back, it becomes an emergency. In such a situation, one should get an immediate evaluation to see if there is something pressing on the spinal cord, which could lead to permanent paralysis. The Emergency Room doctor can ask the Neurologist to help. ...Read more

Symptoms of bowelmovements of only mucus and jelly fish like things. Leg arm feet numbness and tingling. Upper and lower back pain. Wbc of 14.8?

This requires eval: Your symptoms and signs (white count of 14, 800) are numerous and only an in-person evaluation/examination can adequately assess them. I might think of some form of infectious colitis with your mucus BM's and elevated WBC count; the numbness/tingling and pain could be something entirely different. I believe the best advice is go to ER (or your doc's office if you can get in today!) Good wishes:) ...Read more
