Hello Wr. Wb Sir / Ms doctor. I want to ask, why every time I jog or run, there is always a lump that appears on the leg, precisely in the middle of the shin, but only on the right leg is there a lump, while the left foot is not there at all, and if I force jogging, the bumps will be more visible and painful in my right leg, after resting for a few minutes, the lump is thinning and finally disappears, when doing jogging again, it recurs, ask for information and help from the doctor ?, and how how to treat something like this? r nThank you. r nAssalamualaikum Wr. Wb
Walaikumsalaam wr. wb. , Good morning Arlendra.
Lumps in the lower limbs that arise after running activities can be caused by:
Muscle hernia, which is a condition caused by weakness in the tissue that lines the muscles and nerve fibers (this tissue is known as fascia). If the fascia is weak, for example from running, the muscles of the lower leg will be pushed outward and form a painful lump. Muscle hernias most commonly occur in the lower limbs, especially in the shin muscles (muscles at the front of the tibia). Medial tibial stress syndrome (also known as shin splints). This condition is characterized by a painful lump on the tibia (shin bone). This condition can be caused due to inadequate heating or cooling, shoes that do not fit properly or do not support running, foot deformities (flat feet), or muscle weakness. trauma or muscle injury inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis tumor (rare) etc.
We recommend that you check with your doctor, especially an orthopedic specialist, to confirm your condition. The doctor will ask questions about complaints, perform a physical examination in person, and if needed, the doctor will suggest additional examinations (such as X-rays or MRI). While waiting for the doctor's appointment, here are some suggestions that we can give:
Warm up sufficiently before doing sports, and end with cooling. Use adequate sports equipment (including sports shoes) Apply an ice pack wrapped in a cloth when the bumps appear and apply warm compresses when the bumps begin to deflate.
Hope this helps.
