However, any associated weakness or sensory disturbance should be evaluated. Other causes may be meralgia paresthetica, bursitis, or even referred pain from LS spine or SI joint.

My tibia and fibula were broken treated with orif. Why does my leg feel so heavy?

Needs evaluation: It is hard to tell for sure what you mean by leg feels heavy, which can mean different things to different people. If you are having difficulty lifting your leg or foot, it could be a sign of nerve damage. There is a nerve close to the fibula which helps lift the foot and turn it out. If it isn't working properly it can result in "foot drop". Deconditioning can also give a "heavy" feeling. ...Read more

My right leg vibrates for few seconds then stops, few minutes later it starts again, it's like there's a phone in my pocket. What could be the cause?

Fasciculations: These happen to most people at one time or another, and three is no explaining the location. If you seem well otherwise, there is no worry. I think that a nerve twig is under repair, and the ending gets sensitized to a brief burst of acetylcholine. ...Read more

After you break your leg how quick do you feel pain I fell like a second again. The pain is unbearable I twisted my leg in a hole in the ground

Depending: Depending on the severity of the break (same as fracture), you may feel pain immediately or it may be delayed. The more severe the injury, the more likely it will hurt immediately. A twisting injury like that can fracture the tibia (shin bone) in the area where a boot top will hit. You could also have a high ankle sprain (syndesmosis injury) or an "ankle" fracture, which involves either or both of the tibia and fibula at the ankle. Ice the area immediately, keep your weight off it, get it above your heart if you can, and see a physician. If you have any bleeding, numbness, tingling, or a dusky foot, you should go to an er immediately. If not, you may see your primary care physician or an orthopaedic surgeon. I would recommend doing so today. ...Read more
