Legs Feel Tight And Painful When Standing After An Accident?
Morning doctor. I am 18 years old. I fell due to hit a hole in the asphalt road. The heel of my right foot is swollen, near the middle of my toe I have a hole due to gravel. Now the wound is dry, the hole is closed. The swelling began to disappear, but my legs could not be supported when standing. Every time I stand up a few seconds later my legs ache and tighten until my thighs. What is the cause and how to overcome it?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the legs to the thighs that you feel after experiencing injuries due to injuries to the heel and fingers may indicate a fairly serious injury. Usually, this condition indicates the presence of muscles, tendons (tendon rupture, tendonitis), nerves (for example, nerve nerves), joints (dislocation of joints), even bones (cracks or fractures) that are injured. Determination of the extent to which your injury causes damage to the components of the lower limb is not enough just to assess the clinical symptoms that arise. It is also necessary to do a neurological examination and a thorough physical examination, along with several radiological tests, for example X-rays, CT scans, MRI, and so on. Not only that, to rule out other possible causes of pain that are not directly related to the injury, the doctor can also direct you to undergo laboratory tests.
Our advice, you do not let your condition drag on without a doctor's examination. Check with your doctor first, neurologist, or orthopedic surgeon to be given the best treatment. As for what handling will be done later can vary depending on the tissue damage that you experience. Maybe, the doctor will just give you some medicine, maybe you will do physiotherapy, or maybe you will have surgery (surgery).
As a first step, you can first try the following steps so that complaints improve:
Do not carelessly massage or massage the injured foot, or the area around it
Compress the leg area to the painful thigh with warm water or apply pain relief cream on the leg to the thigh so that the pain is reduced
Do not use your feet to your thighs for excessive physical activity, such as when walking long distances, running, or going up and down stairs
Always wear comfortable footwear and pants when doing activities
Do not carelessly take medicine without doctor's advice
Avoid overweight so as not to cause excessive strain on the injured foot
Hope this helps ...
