Had chiropractic treatment on 16/1/14 now my left calf and all my left foot is numb I have fibromyalgia but never had this numbness this bad before?

See spinal surgeon

Numbness
Most cases of sciatica are quite benign and can resolve over time or with non invasive treatment such as therapy or chiropractic. Profound numbness and/or weakness going on can suggest nerve damage. You should see a spine surgeon and get an MRI. That is not to say you need surgery, but just that you should see a specialist to ensure you are getting appropriate Recommendations. Thank you.

Dr. Marybeth Crane answered:

What could cause deep stabbing and throbbing pain at the base of left calf muscle (inner leg), burning and radiating pain at base of Achilles extending around inside of left ankle and numbness in outer three toes on left foot?

Tarsal tunnel

Extremity-joint-ankle
Description sounds somewhat like tarsal tunnel syndrome which is an entrapped nerve in the ankle but could also be referred lumbar radiculopathy (pinched nerve in back) or just really bad tendinitis compressing the nerves of the lower leg. Sounds like an exam and some nerve conduction velocities would be helpful

Calf muscle pain & numbness of foot & tors?

L4 Radiculopathy

Open-uri20130405-25839-1wpsl2g
Disk herniations at L4-5, could cause pressure to either the L4 or L5 nerves or both. L5 would cause the outside of the calf and top of the foot to be affected. Weakness bringing the toes and ankle up may be present. L5-S1 HNP could cause S1 nerve pressure with back of calf painful and sensations in heel and sole of foot. Any weakness would be in gastroc. MRI would answer definitively.

Dr. Karl Mangold answered:

What might cause pain in the calf and foot numbness?

Go to the ER

Foot_numbness
Calf pain with related numbness below can be a serious sign. You should probably go to the ER to make sure you don't have a DVT (blood clot.) Another possible serious diagnosis is peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in which the pain and numbness are the result of the circulation being cut off. Of course many causes can be benign, but you need to rule out the serious causes first.

Dr. Dale Vancil answered:

I have bad pain in the back of my calf with pain and numbness down to foot. Should I worry?

May be serious

Pain
Pain behind one's calf, and without an instance of injury are other explanations and is painful all the time can be a very serious condition. Maybe thrombophlebitis or thrombosis, this is essentially blood clots. If this is the case, pain all the time at rest or with activities, you should go be seen immediately.

My Right back calf muscle feels tight and sore and numbness tingling in foot and ankle area?

Serious

Open-uri20140227-23426-1dscim4
Sounds like you have a compartment syndrome. This means swelling in your lower leg compressing the nerves thus contributing to the numbness. This could be so serious as to be thrombophlebitis. This is a very serious condition. Can lead to blood clots. See someone immediately.
