Blood and Blood Vessel Message Board


Blood and Blood Vessel Board Index


I had a blood clot in my left leg so I will tell you my symptoms. It started in my lower calf, which I had excruciating pain. It was also very warm to the touch. As it moved up the pain moved so for example as it entered my thigh my calf didn't hurt but my thigh had the same excruciating pain. My calf did have the hotness and it was swelling slightly. I could not put any pressure on my leg, it hurt to sit with my leg bent - the only time it wasn't a huge issue, was when I sat or laid down with my leg completely straight out. The dr says that is because gravity was not pulling down on my leg while the blood was trying to flow. I had it for three weeks before they finally figured out what it was and admitted me into the hospital right away. It took them this long to figure it out because I was 3 months pregnant so first off I got pushed off from dr to dr because they didn't want to treat me due to pregnancy. Once I found one that was willing to work with me and give me the ultrasounds on my leg, it took a day. They also ran more tests and found out I have a blood disorder that caused all of this. Blood clots are very serious - in my opinion, if you truly feel you may have one, I would immediately go to the ER!
