Left Calf Shrink With Lumbago?
hello, my father is experiencing increasingly painful waist, and the calf of his left leg is shrinking, have done alternative treatments such as urate, he said it was vein and ordered but never healed, how should handling
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The term vein that is understood by ordinary people has various meanings when viewed from a medical perspective. Veins can be interpreted as muscles, some interpret gout, and some even interpret with nerves. From here alone, the meaning of wrong veins can mean various things. Though different diseases require different treatments.
In addition, complaints of low back pain and calf shrink itself can be caused by something other than abnormalities in the veins, regardless of whatever understanding. Possible diseases can include urinary tract infections, kidney infections, kidney stones, pinched nerves, and much more. Even smaller calves are not a common symptom. Usually this happens to those who experience paralysis so that the muscles are not used and then shrink.
So we suggest if you have tried to treat your father to alternative medicine and it did not work, this time you should consult a general practitioner to do an initial examination. The doctor will do a history, physical examination and support needed to determine the best diagnosis and treatment for your father, including if it turns out you need to be referred and handled by a specialist. Meanwhile, help your father to lead a healthy lifestyle by avoiding cigarettes, multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruit, sufficient fluid needs and immediately consulted the emergency room if something unbearable. So, hopefully answering your question.
