In brief: Can be helpful

This syndrome, which is most common in people who do a lot of leg exercising, can be helped by fasciotomy, however the diagnosis is not easy and requires measurement of the pressure in the compartment before and after exercise.
The fasciotomy ( cutting the fascia that contains the muscel) allows the muscle to expand and relieves pain, IT is well tolerated. See a specialist in sports medicine.
