all down my leg from the back of the knee down to the calf,doesnt seem swollen its not hot either - its driving me to distaction i took a diazepam earlier and it helped but its worn off now so much be muscular
Have you done anything that could account for it, had a stumble, been wearing new shoes, kicked your H in the cock? Are you PG? Or is there a history of varicose vein problems in your family? Basically if it isn't better tomorrow, then seek some advice.
Hope the on call doctors can help - I wonder about Deep vein Thrombosis - have you recently been travelling and fairly immobile eg on a long flight or 4 hour taxi journey where you've been unable to move around as much?
i went to see the doctors on call last night and he checked my legs and asked me some questions regarding possible dvt,nothing pointed towards that so advised me to take codine ,managed to sleep ok and its a bit better today but not much
I had the exact same thing OP, and actually posted on here! I am somewhat overweight, so my GP sent me straight off to hospital with a possible DVT.
I was there all day, admitted onto the assessment ward. A simple blood test ruled out the DVT, but didnt explain what the pain was. I got some really strong painkillers off them, and it went eventually a week or so later. I cant remember doing anything to it either
it is driving me distraction,my leg feels very heavy,the doc measured my legs to see if there was any swelling ,it was hot or hard.my pulse was strong im over weight too but he said that alone was not a risk factor,i walk everywhere so its not because i sit down alot
i have same. had it about 2 weeks ago then came down with cold or flu. now been up all night vomiting and with pain from hip to back of ankle. i also have pain in my foot when walking but achy calf and hip etc is better i think it's cos i have a heavy period and pain in foot so have been walking a bit oddly. my temp is 38. i am getting nurofen via dps soon and if temp doesn go downa nd pain doesnt go they have told me to get to doc in case is an infecgtion or dvt. no real reason for dvt as walking about etc not pg
thanks. am all well now. but dh has it now and has teh leg ache with it so must be related. am considering leaving him 'only' with ds (1) to look after while i pop out. don't think i'm that mean though...
candyfluff were you ill too could have been the same i thought
