I'm looking for anyone that has had chronic compartment syndrome. I have constant pain in my anterior shin muscle and now I'm having pain in my calf with radiating pain to the sole of my foot when my calf is hurting.
I am unable to walk and bare weight more than 10 mins and the pain is unbearable. At rest i have pain, at night, when I wake up in the morning, when i walk i get EXTREME pain. The only way my pain level settles to about a 2-3 out of 10 is if I lay down for days and don't move around.
We are suspecting its chronic compartment but I'm not sure. The one symptom that is throwing me is it gets better with rest... I still have some pain at rest.
I have had two opinions from Ortho Docs. One suspects Chronic compartment and the other feels it may be more nerve related but is willing to rule out chronic compartment and do the testing anyway.
Has anyone suffered pain at rest with chronic compartment?
What were your readings at rest and with exercise with the compartment measure testing?
