Chronic injury: Without more information, it is difficult to make an assessment. This could be a variation in the way your body distributes fat due to a lipoma (focal fat deposit) or it could be due to chronic injury. With a history of diabetes, you may be developing loss of sensation to your foot and hurting it repeatedly. Consult your doctor. Read more

My lower left leg is swollen, (3cms bigger than my right) its sometimes tingly. I don't have dvt, I haven't hurt myself. What could be causing this?
Are you sure no dvt: It would be important to clarify that there is no dvt. Sometimes you can have a negative ultrasound on the first check and a second 1 is needed. Other things that can cause leg swelling maybe heart failure but you are a little young for that also infections in the leg such as cellulitis can cause this. In rare cases there can be something compressing vessels in pelvis causing this. Go see doctor. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Using compression?: It is essential that compression stockings be worn after a dvt. They help the swelling and pain. More important, they cut your risk of developing post thrombotic syndrome--a complication you don't want to have. You need to use knee high compression stockings, 30-40 mm hg, daily for at least two years after your dvt. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Swelling of right leg with a dvt. Now I have my right leg swollen and hard. I also have pulmonary embolisms. What could you suggest.
DVT/leg swelling: Swelling of the leg following DVT is due to the vein in the leg having a clot which is blocking the return of the blood. The amount of time required for the swelling to subside depends on many factors-the extent of the clot and the veins involved. Larger veins involved and more extensive clots will take longer to resolve. Sometimes the swelling could be permanent. See a vein specialist. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
2 ultrasounds for DVT were negative 2 weeks ago. Constant pain in calf/ back of knee for a month. The last 3 days leg has started to get swollen?
Get a vascular doc: Consultation. I am not sure if you smoke, but if so it may be Buerger's disease which is clots in your arteries and not veins. Maybe Baker's cyst. This is definitely not a good thing. Not sure if both legs are swelling or one, but may want to also get checked out for any heart issues. Read more
Coming and going mild burning pain in leg and very mild feeling of pulling a muscle. Would a DVT be most likely red and swollen?
Not necessarily: A calf with a DVT can be red and swollen but it certainly doesn't have to be. Redness with dvts is actually fairly uncommon. Swelling and pain is more typical but sometimes you might only have one or the other or neither. If you have concerns that you might have a dvt, you should get it checked out.

Hard, swollen cord/rope-like vein (I think great saphenous vein)along whole leg. Can only go to GP in 2 days. So terrified of DVT/other serious problem?
Superficial clot.: What you describe sounds like a clotted greater saphenous vein. This would present as a palpable cord along anywhere from the medial ankle to the upper thigh. This is called superficial phlebitis but there is always a chance that this can extend into the deep system to cause DVT. You should have a venous ultrasound and see a vein specialist as soon as possible or go to the ER for evaluation. Read more
