Woke up one week ago with a bad" Charlie- horse" and my leg

Customer Question

Woke up one week ago with a bad " Charlie- horse" and my leg has felt as if I had strained a muscle since then. This morning I noticed my leg is bruised on the inner aspect from the knee to the groin. My wife is worried that this may be a blood clot but I don't have swelling or warmth in the area. I am a 68 year old male. What is your advice please.

Hi Bruce. How does the foot look on that side?

Also, are you having any pain behind the knee?
