Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Impaired sensation, namely tingling and pain, which appears on one side of the lower leg can be caused by various factors, ranging from disorders of the skin, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and various other components of the lower leg. If the pain your husband is experiencing is of very intense intensity, especially to the point of making it difficult to carry out even light activities, for example walking, then you should ask your husband to have his complaint checked directly to the doctor. The doctor will conduct an interview and a thorough physical examination specifically in the area of the painful leg. In addition, other examinations can also be done as a support, for example rotgen, CT scan, ultrasound, and so on so that the appropriate treatment can be determined.
Some of the conditions that might trigger your husband's complaint are:
Lower leg or spinal cord injury Peripheral artery disease (narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs, usually due to athrosclerosis) Deep vein thrombosis (clotting of the inner veins, possibly due to venous stasis, damage to blood vessels, or hypercoagulability) Herpes zoster (shingles) or post herpetic neuralgia Lack of certain vitamins or minerals, such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamins B1, B6, and B12 Disorders of the spine, for example due to a tumor or infection with peripheral neuropathy (peripheral nerve damage), for example due to diabetes Infection, for example chikungunya, leprospirosis stroke, etc. With direct examination, the possible causes of pain that your husband is experiencing can be identified and given appropriate treatment. Alternatively, the doctor can refer your husband to a neurologist if necessary.
In the meantime, you can help ease your husband's complaints by telling him to take the following steps:
Compress sore feet with warm water Use comfortable pants and clothes, not tight Do not wear narrow shoes. Exercise regularly, either by swimming, cycling, yoga, aerobic exercise, etc. Maintain ideal body weight. Take paracetamol medicine first to reduce pain. Stay away from smoking and alcohol Hope it helps ya ..
