Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. However rupture of the achilles tendon can present with a sharp snap or pop in the lower calf. It is extremely painful and usually the person can only limp. The rupture can lead to calf swelling and inability to point your foot downward. You might find you are not able to stand on your toes or walk up the stairs. I recommend that you see an orthopedic surgeon because you might need surgery. Take care. ...Read more

I hurt my back a year ago. Now back pain is gone. Ever since then I've had pain in my right leg from my calf to my hip. Hurts more when sitting.?

Let's get some help: This sounds like ligament/tendon strain or possibly a bursitis (inflammation of a bursa (a sac of fluid)). However a nerve could be getting trapped. I have found that seeing a physical therapist, results in decreased pain, increased movement and help in diagnosis. See a physical therapist and get moving today!!! ...Read more

I had pain in tibia/calf area pre/ post acl surgery. Hurts when I stand up after sitting in a chair. Is it possible that I damaged/cracked my bone?

I had pain in tibia/calf area pre/ post acl surgery. Hurts when I stand up after sitting in a chair. Is it possible that I damaged/cracked my bone?

R/O STRESS FRACTURE: Yes: You need to rule out a stress fracture of the tibia. Get tib/fib x ray /MRI or potentially bone scan. If X-ray is - a bone scan is indicated. It takes awhile to heal and you may need pain medication and close follow up. If healing is delayed you can have PRP = PLATELET RICH PLASMA TO EXPEDITE HEALING or PROLOTHERAPY. ...Read more

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

L5-S1 microdiscectomy Fri for left leg sciatic pain. Calf/foot pain relief w/some thigh/behind knee pain. Pain less AM but sharp pain down left leg into foot w/pain level of 9.5 & hurts sitting/lying.

Microdiskectomy: Give it some time; sometimes simply moving the roots around can upset the lumbar plexus and give you intermittent (even quite severe) pain, although it resolves within a week or two. Getting to the disk requires mobilization of the roots and inflammatory changes from that- or the disk herniation- itself can give this pain. As long as bowel and bladder OK, hopefully this will resolve also. Best! ...Read more

My hip/back (feels like it's deep in my butt) hurts badly when I lay on my back & am in the process of laying down/sitting up or lifting the leg. Why?

You may have pulled a muscle: Depending on what you were doing prior to the symptoms occurring, will determine exactly what the problem is.
