Pain Management

In brief: Depends on cause

There are two types one is neurogenic and the other vascular. Treatments are very different.
Firstly the cause needs to be confirmed. Secondly both produce pain with walking (the latter may have pain even at rest and this is not a good sign). So i would suggest see your pmd and get a work-up.
