Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
When did this start?
about 4 weeks ago.
Has it been swollen for 4 weeks?
yes some days slighter
Is it only on one side?
yes, the left leg below knee
Is it red?
no nor is it cold or hot and no pain except the leg feels different
I see, any weakness in that leg?
no but I also have had a numbness and tingling in toes on both feet which really annoys me since that has been going on fir about three years. Was given emg tests by neurologist and he said no neuropathy but never came out and said what it could be. I have an identical twin sister who also has this numbness and tingling. Her doctor has not diagnosed her.
Okay, and is the swollen area painful to touch?
Okay, this may be due to venous incompetency, or deep vein thrombosis, or a blood clot in the leg. The next best step may be to have an ultrasound to determine the exact cause
Okay, I will do that. Thank you
