This is the second largest discovery in my personal research
after hiatal hernia and ileocecal valve which tremendously helped with my problems.
Now I know why spider veins started to show up on my right ankle all of the sudden, despite of being active. I wasn't aware I could have my secondary heart attack in my legs...I've just found painful trigger point in soleus muscle of my right leg. Bingo, was his name...
"The action of the calf muscles, including the soleus, is plantarflexion of the foot (that is, they increase the angle between the foot and the leg). They are powerful muscles and are vital in walking, running, and dancing.
The soleus specifically plays an important role in standing; if not for its constant pull, the body would fall forward.
Also, in upright posture, it is responsible for pumping venous blood back into the heart from the periphery, and is often called the peripheral heart or the sural (tricipital) pump"
Problems with these muscles can cause variety of symptoms.
If trigger points in these muscles are bad enough you can even faint!
"Surprisingly soleus trigger points can cause deep pain in sacroiliac area and maintain spasm in the muscles of low back. Hypersensitivity to touch in the low back can sometimes be traced to soleus muscles"
(Zyzik, something for you)
"soleus trigger point can be indirect cause of calf cramps"
"Soleus is sometimes called body second heart helping pumping blood up from feet and legs. Trigger points in soleus muscles may promote posterior compartment syndrome.
It can contribute to development of varicose veins, spider veins, phlebitis and other circulatory problems"
