Customer Question
My wife woke up...

My wife woke up yesterday with some pain and swelling in her left leg. As the day went on the swelling increased. She didn't experience any trauma. She does not want to put any pressure on her leg. The swelling has subsided some today and the pain seems to be less. Should we be concerned of a blood clot or something? The swelling is consistent from her left hip down to her foot.

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

She has been placing ice on her knee and calf, which seems to help.Yes the entire leg is very swollen.

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

As far as i know, she has never experienced anything like this.
