Calf pain, blood clot fear
« on: April 16, 2014, 08:05:31 AM »
Hi. Long time no see, been a little better with health worries lately, but...

This morning woke up with this odd pain in my left calf. Its better while laying down. Hurts when I walk or sit. It feels like some kind of nerve pain, its not nonstop pain. More stinging pain. Calf is not swollen i think. Should I go to ER or something?  :(

Sounds muscular related. I would give it some time. If it was swollen, then I would call the doctor.

This same thing happening again, its been 3 days. Short (1-2 seconds) pain, kinda like electric shock or something. Happens every once in a while So scared about blood clot :( been googling like nuts, and find nothing but every little damn pain in calf automatically is the damn clot. Theres no swelling. My back hurts too.

Theres always something to worry about, always. I cant take this anymore!

And the pain is more front of shin, outer side under the knee, sometimes it feels more in calf though. And last night woke up with numb foot, definitely related would guess. Been doing some stretching today, and both legs feel weird now too.

I've been having calf pain since December...it can be muscular or even muscle tension from anxiety. If it was swollen, red and extremely painful, you would know!

The internet is horrible for calf pain...everyone says it's a blood clot, when the chances are very slim.

Thanks! Yeah this one seems to be the most rude google one ever. whenever you feel anything in your calf-> ER. You are dying, no other option. This one is the winner of all the hundreds of diseases ive googled, easily the winner. There should be hundreds of people waiting in a line to ER every day lol. But seriously, thought i've googled it all, this one......winner.

Damn, I have to be home alone for 2 days with this calf pain. Now that my wife is not reassuring me....guess I have to keep writing here....scared.

It's still hurting, not better or worse. No swelling, no hot skin. So it is like 4 days now, would it gone worse already? I talked with a relative who is physiotherapist ( or whatever in english), and she thought it comes from my back. she has had a blood clot and said it was not much painfull, but it felt all the time, not just random electric shock pain.

If you had a blood clot the pain wouldn't come and go.  It sounds sound a bit like nerve pain, the shock sensation.  Unpleasant as that is it will go away on its own.  Stop worrying about it, stop moving your leg around to see if you can still feel it (I'm guessing you're doing that, apologies if you aren't, but it seems like a lot of people with blood clot worries seem to spend a lot of time seeing if it still hurts!), it'll probably sort itself out.

I had a blot clot in my lungs that came from my calf. I broke my ankle at work and was bedridden for awhile, and not moving around caused to to form.  Unless you had and injury to the area and are immobile I wouldn't worry.  If you unusually become short of breath and have a racing heartbeat you might want to get your O2 checked at a clinic or ER.

I had a similar problem to you a month ago. My calf felt tight, sometimes sore and came and went most of the time. Now I went to the doctor and she told me that I had a case of anxiety. With a blood clot your leg would swell and become hot and red. My leg now is fine and has the odd flare of tension but since I know it is nothing, it doesnt worry me anymore and I can cope. I too had it in the back of the knee and like you I was terrified about the sensations but with anxiety, you will get these sensations and your thoughts about it, make it much worse.

Go and see your doctor if you need your mind at ease :) It certainly helps to talk about it because they are professionals and will be able to tell if you have one or not.
