Thanks for the question and coming here. I would like to say that this is a medical emergency and I would like you to visit emergency (A/E) soon as possible. It is important to investigate and rule out any blood flow obstruction in the leg due to clot formation & elevated blood sugar levels. It is vital to have evaluation and examination done by physician including doppler scan of leg, blood sugar levels urgently.

Let me know If you need any more information. Please click on the 5 star excellent rating icon so I can get credit for my time with you.

Kind regards
