Last week I had a pain in my achilles. It lasted about 5 mins and then went again. But since then i have a tingling in the place where the pain was. I have had calf problems in the past. Could the pain from achilles be connected to my calf injury?

Achilles discomfort: When you press on your calf do you elicit pain? The tingling could be from achilles tendonitis, sprain( runner? ) lumbar origin or may be compounded or related to previous calf issues as the calf muscle do coalesce into the achilles tendon .

Cold Calves: Lower extremity coldness can be due to many conditions, too numerous to discuss here. With hormonal fluctuations, as a woman approaches menopause, there may be a phenomenon of superficial vascular hyper-reactivity. Dilation is often described by many women as hot flashes, dizziness, sweating, etc. If vessels constrict, blood flow decreases, the skin will cool, hence the cold limbs. ...Read more

can walking and getting up from chair at job be causing me to get calf stiffness/tingling/pain? also getting r . shoulder numbnese

Possibly: The calf symptoms can be associated with sciatica, or its cousin piriformis syndrome, due to impingement of the sciatic nerve. Usually the symptoms will run all the way down to the heel, and/or up the back of the thigh. However, a blood clot in the calf can also give these symptoms, particularly if the leg is swollen and/or if you smoke. If this is the case, get to an ER to check it out asap. ...Read more
