Common Questions and Answers about Leg and foot cramps lower back pain

foot

Yes, I have pain from my lower back and down. Today, it is my right leg. My knee is swollen and tender. Last night I had cramp in my right foot and ankle. I suffer from edema and am on Lasix, Spironolactone, and Diovan. Even with all of these meds, i still swell. As you can imagine I spend a lot of time on the john.
Have you had a biopsy to determine how much liver damage you have? I've never really heard of foot pain before and I've been here a long time. Leg cramps yes, is that what you mean? If so try drinking tonic water - believe it or not it helped me greatly with the leg cramps.
I too have bulging disc, have foot and toe cramps and even resting toe tremors in left leg only. Shots have been suggested but I'm worried the tremors are something else.
I get pretty bad cramping and spacticity in my rt leg and foot. It sometimes gets so bad that I can't lift my rt leg or push it forward to walk. Thankfully this hasn't ever lasted more than a day at a time for me. My rt calf constantly feels like it's going to Charlie horse cramp. Nothing helps it. I also have weird, random twitches and jerks in legs, feet, hands, arms, even torso and neck. Once in the ER, a few months ago, and twice by different pcps, I was noted to have rt side weakness.
In addition, I often have severe leg cramps in my lower/left back of leg that shoot down and freeze my foot into a weird position. I went to a podiatrist when it was just the toe numbness. He thought it might be a neuroma. I got a shot of cortizone. Didn't help. I gave up on it and figured I'll just deal with it. But now the lump feeling and the cramp is just driving me crazy. Any suggestions what it may be, or what kind of DR I should see. Should I get an MRI. X-rays really do show much.
I swear i have one-three a night now for that last couple weeks, and now my lower leg in the back hurts really bad, like out of the blue. I just took a warm bath, and now i have slight cramping.
Yes I am in legit (lower back) pain and receive the meds from a Dr.(pain management) I have tried to lower the dose, and the leg cramps, sneezing, yawning, anxiety and the back pain have been too much to handle. I also take Soma for sleep. I dont have insurance, I pay cash for everything (around 500.00 a month) Thanks so much for your reply.
I was getting pain in the right side of my lower back and then pain in my right hip and it hurt so much that I would be in tears at work. I couldn't walk without being in a lot of pain and I was constantly bumping into things. My doctor had me on so many diff anti inflamatory meds and pain pills but nothing helped, I was even told by my dentist that I had Lyme disease. I was finally diagnosed with Chiari1 with a syrinx in my cervical spine that went into my thoracic spine this past Oct.
As far as I know I am not diabetic but for the past three or so years I've been getting these lower leg foot and toe cramps while I sleep. Sometimes I can do an opposite stretch while still in bed and that will make the cramp go away and other times I have to get up and walk around the bedroom. The toe cramps are the worst. My big toe will spread away from the other toes and then go back toward my shins and I have to use my hand to push it back to position.
But as soon as I lift them back up the muscle cramps come back. I have a bad lower back and I need to ware a shoes with a heel. My foot doctor, tells me not to walk in flat shoes, with lower back problems. I tired flat shoes like, tennis shoes and my lower back pain is bad. Can you tell me What causes this?
However today (day after procedure) I am having severe lower back pain near the injection and my left buttock and leg are killing me. It hurts very badly to walk. The only thing that gives me any relief is lying down. Is this normal? Will this go away on it's own? Could it be spinal fluid leaking, or nerve damage? The reason for the test in the first place was my neck and upper shoulder pain, now I have even more pain but in my lower back! Any advice would be great! Thank you!
What a couple of months,I really think,before people have back surgery,they should see a therapist.His back feels great ,no pain at all,but his right leg,he wants to chop it off.The pain,pins and needles,spasms and numbness is horrible,Now some days are good,but very few.We both hope this gos away,LIKE the docs say it will.Would he have had this surgery,if he new this.NO WAY.As the wife,I was so stressed,lacking sleep,from him moaning all night,nothing I could do.
I have been suffering from the same kind of pain, left lower back, hip, groin, leg and even sometimes my left testicle feels like there is a clamp attached. I have had a CT scan done and the results show that there is a lump taking up 3/4 of my left kidney. We are not sure if this is causing my pain but I will post another comment once I am fully healed from surgery to have my kidney removed which will be soon!
Neurologist (specialist) did 2 MRI s, one at the back and the other at the right lower part of the leg which is between the knee and the ankle. As per the neurologist both look normal. as per him I should recover the foot drop automatically one day. Do I have to take a scan on my brain too. what do you suspect..thx much.

What can cause legs, feet & toes pain, numbness & stinging? History: 13 yrs. ago I woke with intense pain inside left thigh & outside left lower leg, and I could no longer put weight on left heel without the foot flopping flat to the floor. Diagnosis was probable herniated disc with siatic nerve damage causing "drop foot". 2 years ago L4, L5 & S1 were fused.
I have been out of work for a year due to pain in left hip and it generates down the left leg and into my foot. My mid to lower back and middle of buttocks has sever pain also. There is tenderness from my mid back down to the mid thigh. For the past half year, there are times I have to walk with a can. I have been to many doctors and every dr. has a different diagnosis. I have recently found out that I have 7 herniated discs. 6 are small but the other is more severe.
Even though it is still bulging it is most likely the source of the left hip pain (coincidental) that I've had for 12 years and the increasing lower back and tailbone pain, which does make me wonder if the S vertabrae should have been scanned, and along with clearly sciatic pain. I have Fibro as well and I am curious to know you're age Jordaine and how your bone scan turns out.
I got leg cramps and foot cramps and disturbed sleep when my meds were too low. It was amazing how fast the cramps came back when the last stoopid endo lowered my meds because my TSH was too low to suit him ( he thought I shouldn't be on meds at all) ! Seems like both your FREE's are too low, doesn't it ? Now that I've increased my thyroid meds again, the leg cramps are gone and the foot cramps are almost gone. My feet would go into spasm every time I would stretch my legs out on the couch.
pain and stiffness in hips and lower back, especially after being in bed for a few hours. And by the time I get up in the morning, I'm so stiff I can barely get out of bed. After reading ryanmitton's post from April 2007, I decided to try a harder mattress as a test. In our home office we have an old cotton futon. It is rarely slept on, but I gave it a try one night. I woke up feeling 90 percent better than I have in months! The next issue was how to make our usual bed more comfortable.
I often awake from muscle cramps in the night. The cramps are in all my lower leg muscles, especially little ones I would never have known I had, but are rarely in my calves. Occasionally they are in my thigh muscles too. Like restless leg syndrome, I usually have to stand up and/or walk to get rid of them. Unlike what I have been told about it, they cause actual pain. This may happen several times a night. Usually I have about two to four weeks in which it happens almost nightly.
I have DDD and my doctor told me pain from the lower back down the left leg is a symptom. I get it in my right due to a hip injury. It causes me to be in pain when sitting, walking more then 20 minutes, standing long. I get shooting pains and what feel slike leg cramps behind my knee. The PT told me my muscles were squeezing my Siatica Nerve, which I believe DDD does on your left side. I would as for a lumbar MRI.
-) I feel that icing my leg and lower back is the only thing that somewhat helps also. I am going to insist that I be checked for circulation problems and Restless Leg Syndrome. Back MRI was normal for me. Sometimes my pain is relieved just by getting out of bed. I do have severe arthritis in one hip (same side), but two out of 4 orthopedists have said pain below the knee is atypical for arthritis in the hip. Have you had any input from any doctors? Anyone out there have any ideas? HELP!
I have had an IUD for 2 1/2 yrs . I have been having lower back and leg pain to day is the first day. I feel crappy. Its to early to take a pregnancy test. I am not even late yet. I would be late on the 1st June. I normal don't get back pain. I don't want to be paranoid but with IUD I think I need to be cautious. Suggestions. Thanks, PARANOID.
Other time like when I seat from inside e ankle to my whole foot will burn/tingle. It's almost like the pressure on the back of my leg causes this. Also, sometimes if you run your hand from the top of my leg to the ankle you can feel,it go from warm to very cld at the ankle. This has been gradually getting worse over the past 8 years and I have seen a ton of doctors. General doc, nuralagist, chiro, podiatrist, homeopathy, acupuncture, pulmutalagist,.
Normally, orthotics can decrease pain, not only in the foot, but in other parts of the body such as the knee, hip and lower back. Without physical examination,it's hard to give you a more accurate advice. But, I still think that stenosis is key point of your husband's leg problem.. Maybe see another doctor for second opinion? Take care!
