Legs Are A Little Limp?
A few days ago my leg hit my shin, at night I hit my leg was weak and hard to move because that night my leg was pinched and tingled, is my leg okay?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A blow to the shin can be a mild condition, but it can also be dangerous. If you feel that your legs become weak, difficult to move, and also experience disturbed sensations (such as squeezing and tingling) after the impact, then you should check with your doctor immediately. You will need a thorough neurological examination of the condition of your foot, or also a radiological examination, such as an X-ray, to assess the extent to which your previous impact has caused interference with the components in your leg.
The condition you are experiencing at this time may occur due to mild post-impact inflammation (for example if edema occurs), hematoma (bleeding under the skin), nervous disorders, joint disorders, bones, or other components around the leg. In addition to the effects of the impact you have had before, this disorder may also occur due to other causes, for example pinched nerves, diabetes, deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals (for example vitamins B1, B6, B12, magnesium, calcium), peripheral artery disease, thrombosis deep veins, rheumatoid arthritis, and so on.
To ensure that your foot is still classified as mild or dangerous, you should check it directly with a doctor at the nearest health facility.
As an initial treatment, so that complaints get better, you should first do the following:
Minimize movement on the side of the leg that was impacted first. Avoid massaging or massaging the leg that was hit. Compress the leg that is tingling with warm water. Wear comfortable and loose pants. Avoid using too narrow footwear.
