I would like to carry on with Dr Thomas if I can please - medical \neurology. Yes please I would like an answer.
Sorry,it was just because i'd put my question at the end of our last thread and had hoped not to have to write it again. A quick history - I was knock kneed as a child, had exercises, left leg sorted itself out right leg stayed valgus. 2003 had DVT in right leg after a little accident, lots of clots up to about half way up thigh, wasn't allowed to have physiotherapy for about 6 weeks. Right leg became very weak, eventuallly allowed to exercise. I had 5 months off work (physical job) and was anxious to get back but in that period my foot and/or knee had turned out/in more than they had been, I know this because I was having trouble with my shoes. Since then I feel that my right calf muscles or the achilies tendon has shrunk, I have tried other exercises but if I try to stretch the calf then it makes the lateral part of my foot unstable and painful and whereas I can work with shortened muscles I can't work with the fear of my ankle giving way at will. I have had 2 lots of tendonitis and one of tenosynovitis in that foot/leg and a steroid injection into my foot. Now more recently I have pain in both of my calf muscles when i've been walking a while, My left calf muscle will loosen up a bit while at work but it hurts when walking, I can not stretch the right one, also the valgus knee has turned further round. What do you think might be wrong and is there anything I can do?
thank you, ***** ***** into this now. I have pain in my right leg at the moment ,it is all the way down, mostly in the back and medial sides but doesn't feel like sciatica. i keep hoping it will go away on it's own but it won't. i think external pressure is making it worse, so my laptop from the anterior, various chairs from the posterior and medial when sitting and driving. Think i'll go and see a doctor.
