Customer Question

Hello, I don't know if I should go to the ER or just relax in my home or just take Ibuprofen, today is the third day in a row that my right leg is hurting without a reason, I didn't fall, it does not have any sign of shine. or external inflammation, or change in color, the temperature of the skin I feel it the same as the left leg. But I feel that I can not move the leg, when I try to bend hurts as hell the whole leg from the top, knee, calf to the bottom. I feel pulse on my feet, I was afraid that it might be a dvt or something like that, I already had two in my life. Should I go to the ER?

Go to the ER

Not being able to move the leg can be serious.

It can be lower spine problems.

It could be circulation.
