Hi there I'm 29 years old female and have the calf problems pain kind of like pressure in both sides although the right is more I'm all the time tired can't seem to get enough sleep, headache is awful. I have been going through this for over a year at first I thought it may be as a result of a surgery I had a year and half ago (laproscopic they did remove my Colon ) any way finally I went back to my surgeon he says has nothing to do with my Surgery went to my family physician they did any blood test you could thin all came back good , ordered an MRI I was told I have endromitrioses so went to my OBGYN
he says my legs have nothing to do with it, so back to my family physician they did say I might have fibromayalga so put me in Lyrica no efect changed my doctor another round of blood and urine tests nothing so he decides is restless leg syndrome I did research on that I was sure I don't have it but I still went ahead took the Mirapex and Voltrane gel where after a week I end up in ER 5 hrs I took them to lower My blood P reassure and Heart Rate so I go back to the doctor now he really think I'm making this up so he say Cymbolta cause it is Depression didn't think so but still went ahead and took it in hopes that it will help no result so, by the way they also did try me on Hydrocordone 10mg did not help with my calf's at all .I have gave up pretty much I;m sick of being told is on my head and also being treated as a lab rat just try crap.

Some imbalances in blood chemistries are a bit more "touchy" in females vs. males (lots of Docs are a lil' bit slow!).It sounds like you may well have a bit of either sodium or potassium depletion. If you can say unequivocally that you don't have RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), I'd say look to your electrolytes...majors being sodium and potassium. If you haven't had a basic or comprehensive metabolic panel (blood test) done yet, request one.Let us know how you fare.Best,John<

  • Hello Rinushi,I believe that what you are talking about, if I am correct in the position of your local area pain is indeed plausable. This being in the position, if you flex the calf up by lifting the heel and pushing hard with the ball of the foot into the ground, this will flex the calf muscle enough to determine the point of pain being just below the flexed muscle in the center of the leg. If this is the point, you are not crazy (and don't let any doctor tell you that when it comes to your health..take charge.. take control..) and secondly you are correct, it something to do with you colon. This point is in fact a colon reflex point, often used to determine the severity of a colon disorder.That being said, there are many options available to help you remove that pain and gain some comfort in life again. This however will also be determined by the amount of allopathic interference has been placed upon your whole person. See my other information on this site for more possibilities.Regards,Skyhighnemo.

  • Hey all thank you for your replays. As far as Potassium on my age it should be like 4.7 my blood test show it at 4.3, Sodium 140, Glucose 86, Chloride 108, CO2 27, CA 9.2, BUN 9, Creatinine 0.66, Protein total 6.1, Albumin/Globulin Ratio 1,8, Bilirubin total 0.6, Alkaline Phosphatase 39, AST 15, ALT 12, Cholesterol 207, Triglycerides 70. I went back to my Family Physician and requested that he refers me to a Neurologist he asked me to give him another Two weeks so he will read some more since on his words "I'M Enigma" but he referred me to a Reumatologist ( I hope I did spell that right ) and I'm waiting for a referral for the LUMP on the left side of my throat, which by the way according to them my Thyroid do function well. My Blood pressure is moving up my heart rate is playing with me to. By the way any of you have any Idea if actually Hemorrhoids might cause leg discomfort too, I did never mention this to my family physician since the doctor who did my Colon Surgery knew I had Hemorrhoids and told me that I will have to have surgery on that but he never did connect my legs with it , any way thank you again for taking your time to write me. Oh also I did try the thing that was suggested to rise my heel and the calf get worse.

  • they did say I might have fibromayalga Many doctors will use fibromyalga as a wastebasket diagnoses if they cant figure things out (without really checking for it via the fibro tender points, it's a lazy doctors diagnoses). i suggest you look into fibromyaliga so if you are told that again, you have some base to dispute what they are saying and query them further. To get a proper diagnoses of fibromyaliga, one needs to be getting pain in all 4 quadrants of the body (not JUST the calves) and pain in at least ELEVEN of the 18 FM tender points. Fibromyalgia pain is a widespread often a migrating pain, often radiating out from very specific places (the tender points).. .not what you are describing check out http://www.prohealth.com/fibromyalgia/basics.cfm?anchorid=24&#-24 and how fibromyalgia is diagnosed. As a past fibromyalgia sufferer myself, I personally think that it dont sound as if fibromyalgia is your issue.

  • Hi,The test results are nothing glaring or radical, so as I suspected their is no a great deal wrong with your body chemistry that can not be attended to with some good nutritional supplements, after all, we are all indeed what we consume, both good and bad. As for the hemorrhoids, they in fact are a form of varicose veins and more than likely if you have them, then you also have then elsewhere, like deep set in the leg(s). The best remedy I can suggest at this time (having very little side effects to none), is Butchers Broom, it being a phlebotherapeutic (restores the balance to blood) by classification. It is a herb that has been used for centuries to restore varicose veins in the lower body, amongst other things. http://www.drugs.com/npc/butcher-s-broom.htmlhttp://botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/b/brobut71.htmlAlong with that, add some Calc. Fluor. in a cell (tissue) salt format of both 6x and 30x will also help in increasing the flexibility of the veins after varicosity. It is a Biochemic remedy for maintaining tissue and cellular elasticity for impaired circulation, varicose veins and piles. Take the 3 pellets of 6x in warm water to dissolve every hour and 3 pellets of 30x every four hours, same. I have included my write up basic on Calc. Fluor. for your reading. Calcarea Fluorata. (Calc. Fluor #1) 6x 30x.. A powerful tissue remedy for hard, stony glands, varicose and enlarged veins, and malnutrition of bones, hard knots in the female breast, Goiter, relief from Congenital hereditary syphilis. Induration threatening suppuration and many cases of cataract have undoubtedly been influenced favorably by it. Congenital syphilis manifesting itself in ulceration of mouth and throat, caries and necrosis with boring pains and heat in parts. Arteriosclerosis, threatened apoplexy, Tuberculosis and used after with success after operations with a tendency to reduce adhesions.Hard, bony growths of any kind, Nerve Ganglia, Croup, Goiter, and hard knots (pre-tumorous) in woman’s breasts. Calc Fluor has been used now for over a hundred years in Europe to help with many conditions. Remember, this is a natural salt used within the body. One of twelve Cellular Salts used to assist the body in repair.http://homeopathy-homeopathics-remedies.naturalhealthdoc.net/Homeopathic-Remedy-Information/Calcarea-Fluorica-Calc-Fluor-Calcium-Fluoride.htm (this is good site to discover more about the 12 cell salts)I have included some links for further reading for you, as I believe that the best patient is one that is educated.Regards,Skyhighnemo
