Ultrasound: You may have a dvt(deep vein thrombosis) you should see family doc to check you and likely order an ultrasound to check it out. If you do have this potentially fatal disorder you will have to be treated immediately for safety. Dvt can allow smallal clot to go to lung which is extremely dangerous or even fatal. Do not delay being checked. If you can not be seen immediately, go to the er now!
