: I am a 41 year old female..have lost 60 or so pounds in the last 1yr. Am normal weight..but am having problems with my calves swelling..esp.my ankles when I wear socks..my ankle will puff up around the sock line. Also, my feet stay cold and toes tingle. My skin im my lower legs is tender to touch..it actually hurts. Any ideas??

Cindy,
I have symptoms similar to what you have described. I was recently diagnosed with "Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome", which is the compression of the tibial nerve as it goes through the tarsal tunnel of the ankle. This can cause pain, tingling, numbness & weakness to the affected leg/foot. You should follow up with your physician for a complete evaluation. Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is diagnosed based on the symptoms plus the results of a Electromyleogram (EMG) and nerve study. Good luck.
