My wife has excruciating pain in her left leg from her ankle…

Customer Question
My wife has excruciating...

My wife has excruciating pain in her left leg from her ankle to her thigh. She said she has no clue what she could have done. Prior to this injury she strained her ankle at her previous job about a year ago now all of a sudden she gets this. We don't know what happened and we have been to the E.R. and urgent care

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

She has had sweeping ever since her ankle started hurting. She says it hurts to walk, keep her leg straight, keep it elevated, bend it for a certain amount of time

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Swelling not sweeping sorry

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.
