Can compression socks help with permanent nerve damage?
Leg Pain Treatment -2 answers
I fractured my tibia in 2013 and was misdiagnosed by my college trainers. I ran on it for 6 months. I was a D1 college runner so the mileage was higher than an average runner—around 80-95 miles per week. The doctors provided by the school opted for me not to have surgery and wear a walking boot. They told me after it was "healed" I would have permanent nerve damage and it will feel broken. Just a "jogger" now trying to run with minimal pain. Would compression socks help?

What is the best option?
Leg Pain Treatment -4 answers
I went to the ER in pain and the ultrasound shows thrombophlebitis of saphenous vein at the femoral junction. The ultrasound tech said she could push it down the deep vein system with pressure. Sarasota Memorial Hospital ER sent me home and said to take some baby aspirin and contact a vascular specialist and pain management specialist. I am in a lot of pain. The ultra sound tech was more concerned than the doctor who did nothing for me.

Leg Pain Treatment -1 answer
Hello, I have a problem with the pain in my foot. I am back from Spain. On my 12th day of walking, I experienced a sharp pain in the area of my toes in my right foot and later developed swelling, so I rested. Following that, I continued walking for 10 days. After more swelling developed, I stopped walking. It is now 25 days since this happened and the foot still hasn't come back to normal. Pain is less, but present. I have a lump on top of the foot, and it hurts to press it

I had ligation of the greater saphenous 15 years ago. Is it normal for that vein to still get enlarged and irritated from time to time?
Leg Pain Treatment -3 answers
I had a ligation around 15-16 years ago in the groin area due to massive clotting. It regularly becomes irritated and red, and the bouts can last for weeks up to months before subsiding. Usually, this occurs after extreme amounts of activity. Is this normal? I was led to believe that eventually it would not be a factor.

I have pain behind my leg, from my calf up to my thigh. Do I need an ultrasound?
Leg Pain Treatment -2 answers
About 1 month ago I was kicked in the back of the knee. After a couple of weeks, I noticed a "pinching" or "achy" pain. The pain hasn't increased, but hasn't gone away either. I can feel it in my calf and inner thigh. Had a D-dimer test and it came back negative. 2 different doctors took a look; there is no swelling or heat, but it occasionally causes a Charley horse in my thigh. Do I need an ultrasound?
