Negative leg ultrasound. Am I good?
« on: January 24, 2014, 07:53:47 PM »
Okay so after a week of calf pain, I broke down and went to the er And got an ultrasound of my leg. It was negative. Thank goodness. But now I'm worried cause my throat is tight, and I'm scared I could have a PE and try missed something. Is this crazy? Woul their have been signs I had a clot in my leg, is it just anxious thinking?

I am dealing with this same anxiety right now!  I had an ultrasound about a month ago, and I for some reason can't trust the negative result.  I think you and I just need to relax and trust the doctors.  Easier said than done, right?  I'm still having calf discomfort (I wouldn't call it pain), but I'm trying to attribute it to the way I walk and not something more sinister.

I hope we can both overcome this and trust the ultrasound results  :action-smiley-065:

Oh my god, this is me right now. I'm contemplating whether I should go to the ER... Did they do the ultrasound right away?  And as for you, if you're not feeling those symptoms, like swelling and whatnot, I don't think you should be worried. Ultrasounds pick up things easily.

You are good, no worries about your calf.
