Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Most likely cause is the pinched nerve pain.
The nerve compression at the lower spine can cause radiating pain.
However, the blood clot risk is also there albeit low.
And the best way to rule that out is by a doppler ultrasound.
Blood clot also causes leg swelling.
Without swelling it is unlikely.
And if you see improvement in your symptoms over a day or so, then that also makes blood clot unlikely.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
