Was walking fast in the rain, stepped down and felt pop in calf muscle. It hurt a lot last night, I could walk but iced and took IB. Foot Tingling.

Partial tear: Usually this history means a partial tear of one the calf muscles. The medial head of the gastrocnemius is the most common. Tingling may just be from some swelling around the nerve. I expect that to resolve within a few days. Rest, ice a calf sleeve and wearing supportive shoes with heels should all help you. Don't stretch it. Ibuprofen optional. Healing usually in 2-6 weeks. ...Read more

Had laminectomy surgery on l/4, l/5. Now have foot and calf pain. What is causing this?

Had laminectomy surgery on l/4, l/5. Now have foot and calf pain. What is causing this?

Nerve root: Selective irritation of the nerve root at L4/L5. Google "dermatomes", and you can see the nerve distribution for the lumbar nerves. There is probably some post-surgical swelling and inflammation at the site of the surgery which is causing this. Hopefully, it will get better over time. Try Boswella (a powerful anti-inflammatory herb) and topical DMSO ("horse liniment") available in a feed store ...Read more

I've been suffering feom calf pain for about1 year. Had several dopplers done which ruled out dvt. Still have calf pain, tingling toes. What is it?

Nerve pain: This sounds like nerve pain, especially with the tingling toes. The most common cause would be radiating symptoms from nerve irritation/compression in the lumbar spine. A nerve conduction study and a MRI of the lumbar spine would be a good start if you haven't already had these. Of course, a thorough history and repeat physical exam with a specialist should precede these tests. ...Read more

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

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

Right leg calf pain when I pressn it and when I felx my foot up sometimes and when walking. Moderate pain.?

Right leg calf pain when I pressn it and when I felx my foot up sometimes and when walking. Moderate pain.?

See a Doctor Now: The pain in your calf is most likely minor, but the description of your symptoms raises the possibility of a deep vein thrombosis. This is the formation of a blood clot in the vein in your leg. This can be associated with birth control pills, prolonged inactivity, or just random. It is dangerous because a piece of clot can break off and float through the body to the brain or lungs causing a stroke. ...Read more

Sprained ankle on 11-13 swelling not going down foot cold and pale pain in calf and thigh. On crutches and off foot entirely. Pain unbearable at times?

See a specialist: You don't mention having it properly examined. In addition to a full examination, proper diagnostic testing including X-rays and perhaps an MRI will be useful. The condition (if occurred on Nov 13) is more than 6 weeks. The fact that you remain on crutches is of concern. See an orthopedist or podiatrist to have a proper assessment made. ...Read more
