Pain in the legs / lower limbs indicates the possibility of an inflammatory process or impaired function of the foot or lower leg. Inflammation process or malfunctioning of this function can occur in the constituent tissue of the lower limbs, starting due to the inflammation process or malfunctioning of the skin tissue, muscle tissue, bone, blood vessels or nerves that make it up.
Some of the conditions below can cause pain in the lower limbs or calves, such as:
1. trauma or impact on the lower leg
4. physical fatigue / muscle fatigue
5. infection of the skin tissue or underlying tissue
6. nerve pressure
To find out the cause of this complaint, you should consult directly with a neurologist so that the doctor can confirm the diagnosis through interviews with patients, physical examinations, or necessary investigations, such as blood tests or radiological examinations. Handling and care will be given according to the examination results obtained.
In connection with your question, there are complaints of pain in your left leg with complaints such as spasms in the legs, possibly caused by muscle fatigue in your feet, or maybe because of trauma / sprains in your leg area. If these pain complaints recur at different points, then you should help recover your foot muscle complaints by increasing adequate rest, getting enough sleep and avoiding the activity of walking or climbing stairs repeatedly until your leg muscles are more comfortable. In addition, you can also give a warm compress to your leg area.
Meanwhile, there are complaints like sesa or difficulty breathing, possibly caused by a disturbance in your stomach, where gastric complaints are triggering your breath getting shorter and more uncomfortable. Stomach disorders are often referred to as stomach ulcers, where high stomach acid and stomach acid can be at risk of rising up to the esophagus which eventually disturbs your breath, as if your breath is uncomfortable or heavy. However, other conditions that might cause breathing problems, such as respiratory infections, asthma, or heart problems, should be considered.
And you should consult all of this directly with your family doctor or your neurologist as described above.
For now you should avoid physical fatigue, and avoid sleeping late. Also, eat on time and avoid spicy foods.
