Knee Pain That Radiates To The Calf With Tingling?
Good evening, I want to ask a question and hopefully the doctor can help answer.
Pain in the knee that feels spread to the calf can be caused by various medical conditions. In young adults, these complaints are generally caused by the habit of sitting-sleeping-standing-walking which is not ideal/ergonomic so that it will eventually cause discomfort and eventually pain. In addition, this complaint can also be caused by the habit of sitting cross-legged, using high heels because the blood flow to the legs becomes disturbed. Then consider high uric acid levels, tendon inflammation (tendonitis), and a history of injury to the foot can be the cause of the pain.
As a precaution, what you can try to do is use flat footwear and the right size (not narrow or loose), then don't get used to sitting cross-legged. Then for initial treatment, you can try gently massaging the sore leg while applying pain cream or hot massage cream (balsam), compressing with warm water on the knee and calf area. You are also advised to do sports such as walking, cycling, or swimming that do not put a heavy burden on the feet and relieve pain complaints.
However, you are still advised to see a doctor, especially if the complaint does not improve after carrying out the suggestions above, so that the doctor can conduct further studies to find out what is the source of the problem so that your feet and knees become sore.
Hope it is useful
