Lumps Appear In The Legs That Hurt When Walking Accompanied By Dizziness And Body Weakness?
introduce my name is salma, 24 years old. I often feel pain after I wake up when I move my left leg. Initially I was left with nothing but there was a bump after I felt and if pressed it felt very painful. After sitting or sleeping when standing, my legs hurt to walk, I am also weak and my head feels dizzy and hot. Every night the air feels very cold. I went to see a doctor but the doctor didn’t say anything and I just found a case like this. Then what should I do? Thank you very much
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It should be clarified, at what point exactly did the bump appear? How big is the size? What is the consistency like? Is it easy or difficult to move? So, how long has the lump appeared?
The appearance of a painful lump in the leg area can occur due to many causes. If you also often feel weak, dizzy, and hot and cold, it is likely that this condition is associated with inflammation. Some conditions that can cause these complaints are:
Infection in the leg area, for example:
Shingles (smallpox, caused by reactivation of the Varicella zoster virus which previously caused chickenpox)
Abscess (pus-filled sac formed under the skin)
Cellulitis (soft tissue infection)
Osteomyelitis (bone infection)
Lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes), can occur due to:
Primary infections of lymph nodes, for example Tuberculosis, HIV-AIDS
Secondary infections from other organs, for example infections around the legs or the abdominal and pelvic cavities
Arthritis, for example because:
Gout arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to gout deposition)
Rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders, rheumatism)
Malignancy (malignant tumor), and so on
You can see from our explanation above, that there are many possibilities that can underlie your complaint. To be sure, you need to check your complaint directly to the doctor. If necessary, to determine the cause of the pain and the lump, the doctor will direct you to undergo a blood test, biopsy, x-rays, ultrasound, and so on. As for what treatment will be given later can vary depending on the diagnosis established.
In the meantime, first take the following steps to improve your complaint:
Leg compresses are painful and there are lumps using a warm compress
You can also, you take the drug paracetamol to reduce pain, dizziness, and chills
Bathe diligently and cleanly, then also wear clean clothes and pants
Avoid using pants that are too tight
When activities outside the home, use clean and comfortable footwear
Limit the excessive activity that makes the pain in your feet gain weight
Do not massage the painful leg in any way
Drink more water, at least 10 glasses per day
Eat healthy and nutritious food
Do not smoke
