11 Causes of Achy Legs

New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?

More specifically, you want help with 11 Causes of Achy Legs?

let’s talk about the 11 potential causes of achy legs now it could be in one leg or the other leg or both legs so number one you have this condition called claudication as an intermittent claudication instrument it means it comes and goes it has to do with pain or achiness upon exertion so let’s say for example you climb up the stairs or you’re starting exercising or you start to exercise and your legs get really painful or achy what’s happening is there’s some type of obstruction in the vascular system and your lower legs it could be a thorough sclerotic plaquing but the bottom line is you’re running out of oxygen to the lower extremity one essential thing to do about that is to get in a low carbohydrate diet also in a minute fasting is going to be beneficial and then start getting on an exercise program that is very very light but it’s consistent every day and you do that gradually over a period of time you’re slowly increasing it because when you do that you’re going to increase the growth of more blood vessels to the area number two sciatica now the silac nerve is the longest nerve in the body it’s about the width of my thumb and it originates from the lumbar vertebra and it’s form it forms this big nerve that goes in the back part of the buttocks down to the back of the leg so you could either have a pinch in your lower back from I don’t know a disc protrusion or something or you could have a pinch in the location of the buttocks by a muscle called the piriformis if it’s in spasm it could pinch that nerve and you can experience achiness in the lower part leg but realize this the static nerve is in the back part of leg not on the side of the leg if you have a kena sore pain on the side that could be another nerve but it’s not the site of nerve for pretty much all of these I put videos down below to tell you what to do about them for this one you want to make sure that you want to work on the curve in the lower back to create that more space in the nerve roots okay number three restless leg syndrome and I have a video on this specifically but this is a buildup of lactic acid in muscles in your lower leg because you’re low in vitamin b1 okay and if you’re deficient in this because you’re doing too many carbohydrates you’re not going to be able to get rid of lactic acid so you’re gonna have a condition called lactic acidosis so it’s more acidic than it should be and the muscles are gonna feel very restless I had this for many years I didn’t know what it was I would be getting up in the middle of night going for a jog in the middle of the night to try to get this energy out of my legs it just I could not relax very simply I wish I would have known this b1 nutritional yeast gets rid of it like that and of course cutting out the carbs I was doing a lot of carbs back then okay number four virus is like an Epstein bar virus can come in and out of remission over the years depending on your stress level and what activates it and that can create various symptoms fatigue achiness in the muscle or swollen lymph nodes okay number five low vitamin D why because vitamin D is one of the most powerful anti-inflammatories so if you’re low in vitamin E you’re gonna have more inflammation especially in the lower back but it can be anywhere in the body and it can also show up as a keenest not just pain number six if you have a pinched nerve in your back somewhere that can refer not just pain in the lower part of your legs but achiness as well number seven electrolyte imbalances so if you’re deficient in potassium or sodium or magnesium or even calcium that could be enough to create not just a cramp but an achiness in the calf or your foot or your buttocks muscle as well it could be any anywhere in the body number eight old injuries let’s say for example you fill in your tailbone okay you Jam the tailbone or you fell on the knee or you sprained an ankle or you stub to toe that can alter the biomechanics and cause you to walk a little bit out of balance and over the years that is gonna create wear and tear on certain joints especially the knee joint and and then it causes one muscle to tighten up and the other one who’s going to be too loose and create imbalances asymmetries that can cause a keenest pain and arthritis I have videos on what to do for old injuries especially if you fell on your tailbone or you sprained an ankle or you have knee pain so I put those down below number nine deep vein thrombosis this is a situation where you have a clot in the deeper veins of the legs and that’s obstructing blood flow now I talked about the clot right here okay but if you have a clot called a thrombus that’s in your deep veins that’s gonna create a lot of achiness swelling one of your legs could be extra warm and you can have alteration in the color of the leg because it’s affecting the circulation number 10 varicose veins or spider veins that is a problem with the superficial veins in your legs which could definitely create achiness okay so both of these can create a cleanness and then we have diabetes diabetes is a high blood sugar situation not only will it deplete mountain b1 but it will also create oxidation in the inside of the artery and the capillaries the small blood vessels that feed the nerves so you can have a keenest from the muscle aspect because the muscle is not getting oxygen but also a heinous from the neurological damage that occurs from having diabetes and I put videos on each one of these down below so you can check it out and there you have it 11
