Can you get leg and feet swelling, heel pain after si joint pain?

Can you get leg and feet swelling, heel pain after si joint pain?

Yes: The sacro-iliac (si) joint in the back is located near the roots to the nerves that supply the lower extremity - any swelling in the area can cause irritation/impingement of the roots which control sensory (what you feel), motor (how you move) and autonomic (things that are automatic like swelling) nerves...Talk to your pcp who may refer you to a back specialist. ...Read more

It's : It's always a challenge trying to give specific answers without the benefit of an examination or the ability to ask you specific questions. That being said, the fact that you can run probably excludes any vascular issue like poor circulation (which is unlikely in a younger person). Knowing you have flat feet, and given the widespread involvement that is limited to only your lower extremities, the first thing i would investigate is a biomechanical cause for your symptoms. If your foot structure is such that it's causing your leg muscles to overwork in an effort to compensate for the structural issues, that most certainly can cause all sorts of muscle fatigue, heel pain, shin splints, low-grade tendonitis, etc. I would recommend seeing a podiatrist and get a biomechanical examination. Orthotics, either a good over-the-counter kind, or a custom molded pair will improve your symptoms dramatically. Also, needless to say, make sure you take enough time to stretch before and after each run. Good luck. Hope this helps. ...Read more
