Customer Question
Been having a couple of...
Been having a couple of issues with my left leg lately. Been having a tight (almost crampy) sensation just above my knee on my thigh (inner side and just behind) and also below my knee on the inner side. Also been having some tightness on back of calf. Goes away when i adjust my leg.I saw my PCP a week ago and she physically examined my leg (no diagnostic tests) and didn't suspect a DVT, but I'm still fretting over it. She said she thinks it could be muscular or arthritic in nature.There is no swelling or color change. Do you think I should be concerned?

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.
