What are your age and gender?

Is there any redness, tenderness, swelling on the shin or calf?

Were any investigations done for it?

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 7 months ago.

Your symptoms can be due to pinched nerves in the back secondary to;

1) Herniated/degenerated disc in back

2) Lumbar spondylosis; bone spurs in the back vertebrae pressing on the nerves.

Following investigations would be required;

1) X-ray of the lower back

2) MRI of the spine

3) Nerve conduction velocity (NCV) study

4) Electromyography (EMG).

5) X-ray of the leg.

Physical therapy may help you which is the mainstay of the treatment.

Neuropathy and a local tumor can be the other possibilities of the diagnosis.

Wishing you a speedy resolution and all the very best in life.
