Help! Inner thigh cramps..Have TTS/PF

Posted by Paula A on 5/17/01 at hrmin (048103)

Last night I was elevating my foot, after taking it out of
my walking cast (Bledsoe LC boot). When I took it out
of the cast my outer side foot was swollen along with
the top of my foot..Can't move my toes now either..
I elevated and iced last night but when I sat up to
put my cast back on, I got HORRIBLE, repeated
cramps in my inner thigh of my left leg..Never
have had a cramp there before and it was bad
enough I was crying. It went on for about a half
hour before it stopped..Today I am still sore there..
My left foot is still swollen, could hardly get it into
the cast boot. I am taking it very easy today..Can't
get far...

MY Doc says I have TTS as well as PF..

Have you ever heard of inner thigh cramps with this
before?

Please help..I have called my Doc..Waiting for a call
back..

Thank you so much,

Paula A

Hi Wendy,

The Doc's nurse called me back and asked me to come
in late this afternoon. I got there and they saw
all the swelling in my foot and decided to put
me in a ankle support sock..He said that should
get the swelling down and to keep on wearing the
boot walking cast..

I told him and the nurse all about the inner thigh
cramps but they didn't even react..Didn't seem
the least bit concerned about it..It still hurts but
at least no spasms tonight..It still worries me though.
Not sure what to do..:(

Sighing but hanging in there..Thanks for your concern
Wendy, I do appreciate it..
