Hello Michael , I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today. Do you have redness, swelling, tenderness in calf?Are you on any medications?Any significant past medical illness or surgery?
Thank you for your response.
No, there is no redness, swelling, or tenderness in either the calf
or the area where I felt the pain yesterday.
I am on a number of medications, but my RX's have not changed for
a number of years and I would really think it has nothing to do with any medications I am taking.
No past significant medical issues, except that I have medulary sponge kidneys, which previously caused me to have (painful) kidney stones, but
I have not had any stones in perhaps 5+ years. Thank you
Thank you Michael for the detailed response.Your symptoms are quite unlikely to be due to blood clot. The usual symptoms which would be suspicious of blood clot (deep venous thrombosis) are;1) pain in calf, ankle, foot.2) swelling in calf3) warmth in calf4) tenderness5) pain on moving the foot towards you.The risk factors for blood clot are;1) prolonged bed rest due to any reason2) sitting long hours like flying.3) hereditary factors or family history4) inflammatory bowel disease5) smokers6) heart failure.The exact reason for your pain is difficult unless a physical examination is done. Since it migrated from upper part of leg to lower part; this is most likely to be a muscular issue. Many times, one may not recognize trivial injury during playing and this is the likely cause of the pain. Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
