Have a med-checkup: You should get a medical examination from your doctor who can check your blood to determine if there is anything wrong with your blood clotting system. A simple CBC would be good test to start with. I am also concerned with your leg swelling(one side only). This could be an indication of blood clotting problems. On the other hand it could simply be varicose veins, which are relatively harmless .
