Have pain in calf and toe and travels to buttock. MRI is fine. Remedy?

Hi, I have severe pain in my calf and pins and needles to my toe , the pain sometimes travels up to my buttock. I have had an MRI scan which resulted in an emergency referral to James cook hospital for back surgery only to be told by the surgeon that the report was wrong and there is nothing wrong with my back, the pain has me in tears at times, it is that bad. I am an active 52 years old male. I look forward to your response. Bob Dennis

Hello Bob,
If your MRI is fine then you should look for other reason for such pain like-

-Deficiency of vitamin B12.



To evaluate all this you should consult to a neurologist.

Hope this will help .

With best wishes.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Pain in calf and in and needle sensation to toes could be due to deficiency of vit b12 level. Pain travelling to buttock could be due to muscle spasm. Taking methylcobalamin suplement and applying muscle relaxant gel will be helpful.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
Dr Saurabh Gupta.
