Leg Pain Treatment
Leg pain is one of the most common problem areas in the body. Since the
legs are used so often, problems naturally arise. Leg pain may sound like
a simple diagnosis, but pinpointing the leg pain can be extremely hard
because there are numerous events that could have caused the problem.
Passive Causes of Leg Pain
- Muscle strain from over using the leg
- Dehydration, not enough potassium
- Low amounts of sodium, calcium, or magnesium
- The use of statins for cholesterol control
- Diuretics causing fluid and mineral loss
Physical Causes of Leg Pain
- Blood Clots/Thrombosis from being bedridden
- Atherosclerosis (plaque build-up)
- Swelling of joints
- Nerve Damage, Fibromyalgia
- Bone infection
- Sciatic Nerve Damage
- Benign Tumors or Cysts
- Varicose Veins
- Claudication, blood flow restriction to calf
- Benign Tumors or Cysts
- Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
What You Notice
Like many injuries, you might begin to feel a consistent dull ache in
your leg. This could eventually lead to the inability to keep your foot
warm. Leg cramping, or “charley horse” spasms which cause
your muscles to have spasms might frequently occur. You may feel like
you can’t keep your balance, joints could swell, or constant shooting
pains from sciatic involvement can prevent you from walking or sitting
for periods of time because of the pain.
Other illnesses such as Lupus, Lyme Disease, or bacterial infections can
also be the root of the problem.
What It Feels Like
- Leg cramps and spasms
- Muscle aches and myalgia
- Numbness and tingling in feet
- Deep throbbing pain
- Numbness and tingling in feet or legs
- Difficulty moving or lifting the arms, or moving legs without pain
- Sciatic symptoms
