can any one help me ?
i have been back and forth to the doctor for 4 years now because i cant stand the pain.im 32yrs old female.
the docs have not been much use as they ref me to physio of which were trying to start off something in my back but could not find any thing as i did not feel any pain in my back.
my problem started 4 yrs ago with tingling on the arch of my foot with slight numbness and tingling internaly.but to touch i could feel. as it has been left untreated it has gotten worse.
i feel like i got something stuck inside the back of my calf muscle at times but can not feel anything there.my calf feels like it keeps tensing up with extreme pressure causing my leg to stiffen v. tightly or jump and my toes twitch after this pressure builds up ang lightens.
my front thigh hurts with involuntry tensing too.
my hip is a burden at night causing me to stay awake from pain. ihave to sleep with my leg pulled up and outwards to put pressure on it or with a pillow between my legs.at its worst i feel sick when all muscles are tensing up together making me stretch my leg as hard as i can. my front knee cap hurts too .
i have eventualy been ref to a neurologist and awaiting to see .
can any onee shed any light on this sort of aggravation?

  • Could it be your plantar facia? I had mine taken out, I was in terrible pain for years; it would aggrevate me right on up to the back of my thigh. Do you have trouble with getting out of bed in the morning on your feet? Just a thought...good luck.

  • Try to find a good massage therapist who specifially knows about trigger point therapy. I have been helped numerous times with various types of body pain including leg pain by therapeutic massage. Of course, most doctors would not think of anything this simple. Good luck

  • It's been a very long time since you wrote, but you symptoms - like many others here to varying degrees - sounds a lot like Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
