Fasciculations with tarsal tunnel syndrome?

Posted by Rachel C on 2/25/02 at 09:37 (074985)

Please could you tell me if fasciculations in feet, calves and thighs could be associated with tarsal tunnel syndrome or whether this indicates that it is something else going on. Thank you.

It is possible to get fasciculations abobe the tarsal tunnel with TTS although I would be suspicious that something else higher up needs to be looked at. Have you had an NCV/EMG? If so, how high did the test go?

I'm waiting to have an EMG on the 13th. Quite anxious about what else this could be.
