Doctor: Ken, Postgraduate doctor replied 8 years ago
Hello,
I can understand your anxiety.
We need to consider few causes. The tenderness or pain can be due to muscle sprain/ inflammation or excess use. The other possibility is irritation of the nerve concerned. This occurs at the spine level {pinching due to osteophyte or inter vertebral disc bulge}/ at its course. Possibility of diabetes and thyroid imbalance also needs to be ruled out.
I would suggest you to have a physical check up along with few investigations like MRI lumbar spine/ nerve conduction test/ blood tests/ color doppler for arteries to clinch the diagnosis. treatment will follow.
Till than take rest/ anti inflammatory tabs may help/ have balanced diet, adequate fluid and your daily vitamin pill/ stay away from anxiety {yoga and meditation help}.
Please do not worry, you will be fine soon. God bless

I don't think its a muscle sprain, its been like this for a very long time, and sometimes my ankle and calf will get real tight and sore to the touch. I'm just curious, theres no need to stress, thats not going to make it anybetter
Doctor: Ken, Postgraduate doctor replied 8 years ago
Hello,
We need to get it evaluated. It is most likely due to irritation of the nerve concerned. MRI and nerve conduction study will give us the answer.
God speed

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
