had pain lateral calf that started bit after I tried to stop an elevator with my leg. I didn't think about the elevator incidence and took naproxen for the lateral calf pain. Pain kept getting worse and kept taking extra strength Tylenol round the clock working etc. Got to a point felt pins and needles. Sent MRI of ankle and showed subtalar
efusion and nothing more. Sent me for EMG because of tingling pins and needles feeling. The small electric shock testing of EMG was ok but then the neurologist told me to lay down and I felt excruciating pain in my calf. I screamed in agony as she told me to relax. The Day following the EMG I was not able to walk out of bed.
I limped in pain. I thought a nerve was irritated but would be better - instead it has gotten worse.
I need a cane to walk in the morning and literally hop to the bathroom and couch. I am in constant pain and it is worse when I get up after sitting with my feet up for awhile. Ihad the EMG in October and cannot believe I now am walking with a cane.
I also don't understand why nothing shows up on the MRI. The pain is excruciating - even walking with a cane I wince.
If anybody has any ideas please help - it's not in my head. Doctors move my foot and don't see anything broken. They do not see me when I get up in the morning or when I get up from the couch.
