Suggest Treatment For Pain And Swelling In The Calves
Re investigate & revise treatment plan with orthopedic doctor's advise,
Thanks for the query through Health care magic . I have read & understood
your problem & concern.
After reading your symptoms that you have described in detail, I feel your problem is neurogenic in nature & seems to be-
- Aggravation of sciatic problem you have. ( nerve compression at sciatic notch or due to pyriformis muscle ) or possibly compression of nerve at higher level in lumber spine.
Any of these can cause pressure of pinching of sciatic nerve to affect nerve supply to calf muscles soreness with burning & cold feeling in foot. The swelling of calf represents irritation & stress to muscles due to over use..leading to mild swelling.
The over weight & blood pressure can contribute to swelling over feet.
* You have been under care of a chiropractor all theses days & aggravation of symptoms in spite of the treatment highlight need to get more investigations & consult an orthopedic surgeon for suitable treatment.
MRI/ CT scan of the pelvis & lumber spine would throw light on exact site of problem.. & management would be cause specific ( NSAID pills/ B12 supplements/ local injection of steroids/ physiotherapy/ physical therapy / surgery ).
* weight reduction would help to reduce the symptoms.
In short expert advise about treatment & your personal care for reduction of weight/ avoid painful movements like bending, weight lifting, over exertion would help you in management of your trouble sum problem.
I hope, the answer was both informative & useful to you. Any follow up query is welcome.
