Hello Hannah,

Is your pain on walking or even on rest?
What is the intensity of your pain; mild, moderate or severe?

I have been working today and has been fine no pain. Since coming home has been a bit of a niggle. the pain as only been started last couple of days is mild.

Hello Hannah,

One can fly with the PVD. So if the pain is due to PVD; flying on Friday would not be prohibited. Having said that; if you have any swelling, redness or tenderness associated with the pain; it will need a colored doppler study (specialized ultrasound) to ascertain the exact cause of it. If your pain increases in the severity; that too, would warrant an evaluation by the doctor.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
