The Cause Of Leg Pain Such As Stabbing And Frequent Tingling?
Hello doctor, I am rizki I am 19 years old, lately I often experience pain in the calves such as being pricked and sometimes also accompanied by tingling, I have been to a general practitioner and I was given vitamins and pain medication, but the pain in my legs I still feel Until now, I’ve been taking medicine since July, how’s the doctor? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain and tingling in the calves may be many causes, for example:
Muscle disorders, for example due to excessive physical activity, lack of neurotropic nutrition, lack of exercise, injury while exercising
Vascular disorders, for example due to varicose veins, peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis
Neurological disorders, for example due to diabetic neuropathy, post herpetic neuralgia
Joint and tissue disorders support it, for example rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, tendonitis, broken or fractured bones
Others, for example viral or bacterial infections, somatoform disorders, and so on
Need to be clarified, what tests have you ever been through a doctor? And what treatments have you taken to resolve your complaint?
So that your condition improves, you try to check yourself back to a doctor or neurologist. Supporting examinations, for example x-rays, laboratories, ultrasound, MRI, and so on can also be done by doctors in an effort to establish the correct diagnosis and the right treatment.
For now, we urge you to take paracetamol and vitamin B complex supplements first to help ease your complaints. Do not carelessly massage or massage your painful calves, especially before going to the doctor directly. Expand to rest, and do not over-exertion that involves calf muscle contraction, for example running, going up and down stairs, or walking too far. Do not forget, regularly exercise (especially sports to stretch your calf muscles), do not smoke, eat healthy food, and maintain your ideal body weight so that complaints do not always recur.
Hope this helps ...
