Worried about blood clot!!
« on: February 03, 2014, 01:05:40 AM »
So for the past few days the arch of my left foot has been really sore, it feels better today but now it feels tingly and my leg around my ankle randomly hurts and then I just had a sharp pain go through my thigh. I am so scared that I have a blood clot or something terrible! My neighbor just got home from the hospital for blood clots Iin his leg, am I just worrying because of what happened to him? Im 24 and in pretty good shape, is it possible that im getting a bloodclot?

Odds are if you had a blood clot, the area may be swollen, hot and painful. If it really concerns you,
I would call your physician.

I had a rather large blood clot.
I wear a compression thigh hi stocking every day now.
My leg was red, swollen  hot and I could barely move it. I could barely fit my foot into a shoe.
If you are that concerned ask a doctor about possibly getting a doppler.  A blood clot can not be diagnosed unless it is seen through a ultrasound.

My adopted uncle had a blood clot and it caused his leg to swell with very bad pain. This he was told was due to cigarettes. If you smoke, stop, and see a doctor about the symptoms because it could also be an infection.

I think it would be very painful and swollen if it really would be a blood clot :)

That is NOT the symptoms of a blood clot.   It's VERY painful and the leg would be red and swollen to the point you'd KNOW something was wrong, not be "wondering".

Thanks y'all! Obviously it wasn't a blood clot, I think when I get any little ache or pain I immediately panic and think the worst. :( I'm trying really hard to work on this, it's just hard to stop thinking that way.
