I have done something to my knee/leg which has left me up most of the night in pain and unable to put a lot of weight on it. I'm 18 weeks pregnant so can't load up on painkillers like I normally would.
I've absolutely no idea what I've done, the pain is burning from my knee to ankle.

I've never been to an out of hours service, we have a minor injuries nearby, is it worth going? Or should I man up and wait til I can see a GP (and hope it stops in the meantime...)

where abouts is the pain in your leg? is it in the calf?

It's more just below my knee, although my calf is sore. Pain on extending/bending etc. This is all new to me!

I do wonder whether it might be sensible to go to a&e instead, just because of the possibility of a dvt. They honestly wouldn't mind you going in those circs if you can't remember injuring it. OOH wouldn't be able to scan or do a blood test for that.

I'm not normally one to suggest a&e if that helps your decision.
