What redness you are asking about?
Do you have any itching or pain?
Here's a picture
do you have any itching?
Ive been worried about a blood clot. I don't have pain anymore. I haven't had any swelling or redness, but my leg feels heavy
not blood clot related.
Sometimes - I do have a mosquito bit near the area, but I've never had this reaction
looks like allergic reaction or from friction.
I am a 38 female non smoker and not on Birth Control
not a blood clot at least
Does a blood clot normally present with swelling. I woke up two weeks ago with a horrible pain behind my near
yes it does
swelling worsens over time.
it has since subsided, but now I have leg heaviness and this red patch
and some diziness but I think it's from being stressed not sure
can be from muscle fatigue
yes correct stress, dehydration
sometimes a burning sensation - can stress cause your left thigh muscle to tense up
you definitely don't think it s a blood clot - sorry been crazy worried about it
yes stress can cause this.
no definitely not blood clot
a negative doppler ultrasound will be reassuring as well.
do you think i need to go now? I am out of town
you can wait and observe for now.
I have had for two weeks today, but pain has gone away. Started when I was standing at a concert for three hours. Felt fine at the concert but woke up at 2am that night with severe pain behind my left knee
the next three days were bad, but after that it got progressively better
muscle pain definitely.
not blood clot
felt 100% as of yesterday
until the redness and heaviness
in your opinion is a physical observation enough to rule out a clot? That is what my ER doctor did. She said if I had a clot I would be in pain and there would be swelling. She thought I hurt my leg
redness can be due to the pressure from the elbow pressure or rubbing against the cloth.
yes usually --ER doc is correct
okay so you think I am okay for now?
okay thank you very much
