Hi guys, I've been lurking this place for a while and it's helped a lot. So thank you to everyone here!
To get to the point: lately I've been feeling a heaviness/tightness in my left leg, especially my knee, accompanied random pains all over my leg. I also get tightness and pain where I have some spider veins which has triggered my fears a lot.
I've noticed when I wear jeans my left leg feels tighter as well, though after measuring both legs (yup, I'm that obsessive) they're the same size.
I've already been to the GP for this (who knows I have health anxiety) and she examined my calf and said it felt normal, then sent me for a blood test. That also came up normal. Though I am aware to see the blood clot I would need an ultrasound.
The feeling of heaviness in my knee has been there for a while (since last year), but used to only get there when I had been sitting around for a long time. Now, however, it is a lot more frequent. I have had this high frequency of heaviness along with the leg pain for exactly three weeks now. Furthermore, there are a couple of pressure points in my left leg that are painful when I put pressure on them, and one in my foot.
Could it really be DVT or a blood clot, or am I just being silly?
Thank you for reading!
