Leg Pain Maryland

If you are suffering from leg pain it is important to know when it’s ok and when it’s not.

Swelling, cramps, muscle aches or pinched nerves can all feel like a temporary issue.

However, there are some cases where leg pain is a serious matter which must be evaluated by a professional immediately.

Normal Leg Pain

There are many cases where leg pain is normal and does not require a visit to a specialist, including the following:

  • If you have adopted a new exercise routine and are sore post workout.
  • If you have cramps due to dehydration.
  • If you have overworked your legs following an injury.
  • If you are ill with the flu and are experiencing aches.
  • If you are taking medication which causes cramping or aching in the legs.

Abnormal Leg Pain

If you have pain as a result of any of the above mentioned scenarios, or varicose veins, which has persisted longer than usual, it may be time to call a doctor.

There are some cases where leg pain, paired with other symptoms may be indicative of a deeper problem.

For example, Rhabdomyolysis is a rare condition where someone who has overdone it on exercise leads to the total breakdown of the muscles.

This is sometimes seen for those who are submitting themselves to aggressive training or who have experienced heat strokes due to exercise.

If you experience an abnormal heart rhythm, weakness, pain, vomiting, or a change in your urine color, call your doctor immediately.

Additionally, if you have pain accompanied by heaviness, aching, swelling throbbing, cramps, itching or burning, it may be indicative of a bigger condition which requires immediate medical attention.
