Customer Question

I woke up with severe leg pain, throbbing but i've had a few other issues in the last 2 weeks. I have a bulging disc also and i've had allergy issues for a few weeks and now I also have nausea along with mild migraines and just have no energy at all. Energy has been going on for over 3 months now and nothing is getting better.
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: daily on headache and I do take generic Fioricet for that I just started on Sat but nausea I guess for about 3 days now.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have had a pancreas issue and just recently got it fixed but i've had a lot of pressure in my stomach and cramping in the last few days

Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I am sorry you are having all of these issues.

is the leg throbbing gone? you could have had a leg cramp at night time. this can happen from dehydration or lack of potassium or magnesium in your diet.

are you taking allergy medications?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I am and know, its just constant pain really. whether i'm laying, sitting, or walking. I stand at my job up to 8 hours a day.

varicose veins and DVT can cause throbbing in your legs

I hope you are on a blood thinner for your DVT

is the throbbing pain coming from your skin and those varicose veins? or is it deeper?

are you overweight? this can put more weight on your legs.
