The Cause Of The Soles Of The Feet Are Often Bent Inward?
Good night. I want to ask about my mother, my mother’s right-footed feet sometimes like to bend themselves inward, the left side too but it is more often the right side. My mother had an operation to remove a lump in her right thigh, does that matter? Or is it just an ordinary cramp? Or is there something wrong with the muscle?
Hello Tika, thank you for asking.
Do you mean by bending it is its movement or position? Under what conditions does this happen, at any time or at certain times? Are there other symptoms, such as pain, numbness, tingling, leg weakness? These things need to be explained properly so that the possibility of diagnosis can be directed. Information such as how long this condition lasts, what type of lump has been removed, must also be explained. In general, there may not be a direct relationship between a lump in the thigh, removal of the lump, and complaints of crooked legs at this time. If the complaint of this bent leg is felt with symptoms of nausea, muscle stiffness, muscle weakness, numbness or tingling, then it might be related to the nerves that regulate leg muscles.
Consult this with a neurologist. The doctor may need to observe what it means to bend your legs. The doctor may also need to do several motor and sensory nerve tests, assess the ability to walk, assess electrical muscle by electromyography, and maybe radiological examination if necessary. There may be injury or inflammation of the nerves and spine. But that requires a series of diagnostic actions to be ascertained.
Pay attention to when the symptoms appear. Ask if there are complaints that are felt. If your mother has difficulty walking, limit strenuous activity.
Thus the brief information that I can give, hopefully can add to your insight. Regards.
