Leg Pain

Postby blue123rd on May 27th, 2012, 6:07 pm

I have a numb leg and foot at times that never stops buzzing and paining. There are other times when it's not too bad. The same applies to my left arm at times as well. What can i do or take to reduce the pain. I'm seeing my doctor on tuesday?

This is an excellent question...I have the same symptoms, though mainly in my legs. It seems when I manage to get rid of the pain, the buzzing just intensifies. Is it a nerve pain, or a muscular pain?

Heat, massage, stretching (but don't overdo it) and hot baths are the things that have helped me with my leg pain.

I had the same leg pain, the physio therapist I saw tested me with different positions she brought it in and said it is a nerve pain (sensory). Mine was so bad I honestly cried some days of pain. Helpful: strechting (piriformis strechtes and real stretches where the hand is brought to the floor), heat (deep heat) and GENTLE massages. Using this daily, my leg pain has gone, and it was really really bad.

I am assuming this is a musculoskeletal issue. Do not stretch until you make sure you do not have any trigger points. Trigger points are areas of the muscle (usually in the middle of the muscle) where the muscle has formed a knot. In order to find the trigger points you should find the points on the muscle that are extremely sensitive to any palpation of them. If you stretch without getting rid of your trigger points it could make the muscle tighter and cause more pain. Once you get rid of the trigger points you should stretch. Take a look at this website. http://triggerpointbook.com/

Do you have any spinal or back problems?
