Hi I am new to this forum so I hope I'm posting to the right place. If not, please direct me where to post.
I have had left calf pain for over 3 months now. It started in September when I was walking at a shopping mall. All of a sudden my calf hurt so much I felt like I couldn't keep walking on it. There was no injury at all that I can recall.
In October I saw a doctor. She gave me a ultrasound looking for blood clot. There was none. She said take naproxen because it is most likely a pulled muscle.
Her solution did nothing for me at all so I went to see a specialist. He also said I must have some sort of strain. He sent me to physical therapy. I've been in PT for a month and I'm not really improving. He has me doing stretches and strengthen exercises. I have less motion in my left foot.
Today I woke up and as soon as I started walking around I noticed my left foot is numb. Ive had numbness for the past 8 hours.
Any ideas what could be going on? Could a strain or pulled muscle really take this long to heal?
