Hello!

Yes >> have this checked further ...

It sounds that you may have a vascular problem...

It might be some delay in venous return of blood in this side ...so different possible causes exist ...

I would worry as one possible cause might be a deep vein thrombosis affecting the blood return ...

You may have swelling on affected side as well...

I think being checked at ER safest route

I hope that this information is helpful for you

I will be happy to get back with you
