Hello,

The pain could be related to local inflammation. For this reason, I recommend checking inflammation tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR) and performing an X-ray study of the tibia.

It is also necessary performing an X-ray study of the lumbar spine, in order to investigate for possible chronic degenerations of the spine (a bulging disc), which can lead to pain in this region.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
