Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

I am sorry to hear about your problems.

There are few conditions, which causes such symptoms . These are
1. Diabetic neuropathy
2. Alcoholic Neuropathy.
3. Degenerative disc disease.
4. Gout.

5. Tarsal tunnel syndrome.

Tarsal tunnel syndrome occurs due to compression of posterior tibial nerve. It is associated with numbness in toes and feet.

To make a diagnose You need to undergo few tests. These are-
Blood sugar test, X-ray of spine, Complete blood count, Serum Uric acid test.

After the evaluation, medications will be prescribed.

You can use a cold pack to relax leg and foot muscles, After this use a warm towel or heating pad later if you have pain or tenderness, or you can take a hot bath.

You should gently stretch your leg and move your foot towards your knee, until you feel the calf muscles stretch.
Also you should formulate an exercise routine and ensure that you build on it gradually.You should avoid alcohol.

There is some underlying issue, and with tests, the cause will be evaluated, and you will be advised management accordingly.
