Pain In The Calf Up To The Ankle?
Hello, I want to ask. I am 17 years old now. From elementary school, my legs often ached, especially at night the pain can be a week full of pain then the pain disappeared after a few weeks of pain again and so on. My legs hurt in my calves. When I was in middle school I had therapy in my legs but it didn’t heal. And from my high school days, my leg joints began to hurt and my ankles too. I checked the gout lab, the results are still normal 4.2. What is wrong with me?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the calf to the ankle, especially at night does not always occur related to joint problems, such as gout (gout arthritis), rheumatoid arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis), or osteoarthritis. It could also, the pain that you experience arises due to other reasons, for example:
Muscle disorders, such as fibromyalgia, muscle cramps, lack of vitamins and neurotropic minerals
Disorders of the tendons, bones, and other tissues that support them, such as due to tendonitis, fractures or fractured bones
Disorders of blood vessels, such as due to peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis
Nerve disorders, such as the result of a pinched spinal cord, diabetes, multiple sclerosis
Others, such as infection, post-injury, psychosomatic disorders, and so on
Your normal uric acid level indicates that the pain you are experiencing arises from other causes, as we have explained above. Therefore, if this pain continues to recur, you should check back to your doctor or neurologist. Through laboratory tests, x-rays, ultrasound, and other supporting tests, often your complaint can be identified properly, then given appropriate treatment.
