Left Leg Pain When Cold?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the inner leg that is felt especially when exposed to cold temperatures may indicate Raynaud's disease. This condition occurs when the arteries that are supposed to supply a certain part of the body (generally the hands and feet) experience a spasm (reduction in diameter) so that the parts of the body that should be supplied will experience hypoxia (lack of oxygen). Not only pain, Raynaud's disease can also cause sufferers to feel cold, pale, numb, tingling, and other uncomfortable sensations in the affected body part.
Often, there are no clear triggers for Raynaud's disease. However, this disease can also occur related to connective tissue disease, arterial disease, a history of injury to the feet, repeated activity or vibration around the feet, smoking, and also the side effects of certain drugs, for example anti-hypertensive drugs, anti-migraine, and so on. Epidemiologically, Raynaud's disease is more common in women than men.
Apart from Raynaud's disease, your complaints may also arise due to other causes, such as deep vein thrombosis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, scleroderma, gout arthritis, peripheral neuropathy, nerve clamps, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals, plantar fascitis, psychosomatic disorders, and so on. .
You need to get checked out right away if the pain you are experiencing is so severe that it interferes with you in walking and other activities. If necessary, the doctor will recommend that you undergo blood tests, X-rays, ultrasound, or other tests tailored to the suspicion of the disease.
As an initial treatment:
As much as possible, avoid being in an excessively cold environment When exposed to cold temperatures, wear comfortable socks, thick footwear, and pants. Compress sore feet with warm water. Get enough sleep, hanging the sore leg higher than the body Diligent exercise Maintain ideal body weight Do not smoke Hope it helps, yes ..
