In October 2013 I ruptured my right Achilles Tendon.

Patient : In October 2013 I ruptured my right Achilles Tendon, an as of late I've been having a burning sensation in my calf, not sure why this is happening?
Doctor :   Hi Thank you for the question. The skin sensation of partial numbness or pins and needles or a type of burning, tin gling or creeping sensation of the skin, is known as a paresthesia. Any type of tingling, burning, or numbness is usually a symptom related to a sensory nerve being damaged, diseased, or injured. Here are the few causes: -Blood Vessel Distress -Peripheral Neuropathy -Electrolyte Imbalance -Arthritis If the problem continues then please seek immediate medical attention. Talk to your Doctor about it. I hope this will help you. Take care.
