Could my husband have a bloodclot in his leg? My husband is 40 and overweight with a history of knee and back troubles. His knee recently swelled and became painful with no obvious cause. He has been doing yardwork instead of resting and now his lower leg

Could my husband have a bloodclot in his leg? My husband is 40 and overweight with a history of knee and back troubles. His knee recently swelled and became painful with no obvious cause. He has been doing yardwork instead of resting and now his lower leg

Well,: Well, lots of factors going on here. Given his history of knee issues, a day spent doing yard work certainly would aggravate this, and even cause swelling... In the knee, but not the lower leg and ankle. And the mottling you see is probably not from a close exposure to a heat source. When I barbecue, I usually end up burning the hairs on my arm long before I do anything to my skin. And the skin's response to heat is to turn red at first (before it blisters), so I don't think the mottling is from the fire.

So my short answer to your question is yes, take him to the doctor and get him checked out. It may or may not be a clot, and it may or may not be dangerous, but why take chances? If it is a clot, it can be a serious problem that needs immediate attention. Better safe than sorry.

Good luck! ...Read more

I knocked my lower leg against a cabinet about a week ago, and it formed a round raised dark colored sore that is painful to the touch. Not improving.

Hematoma: This is most likely a small blood clot under the skin. Applying hot (not too hot!)soaks helps to break down and dissolve the clot. If it doesn't dissolve it may turn into a very firm lump which remains tender to the touch and has to be removed by a surgeon who makes a small incision to remove it. ...Read more

Left ankle/lower leg is swollen. Bp normal. No salt. No excess fluids. Took hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) & atenolol. What's up?

Left ankle/lower leg is swollen. Bp normal. No salt. No excess fluids. Took hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) & atenolol. What's up?

Swelling: The swelling is likely caused by what is known as venous insufficiency. The elasticity of our veins decreases with age and doesn't recoil efficiently to move blood against gravity toward the heart. Support stockings, weight loss, leg elevation can help. If this is acute in onset and associated with pain you should see your doctor to rule out a more serious condition as a blood clot. ...Read more

Muscle cramps are commonly due to tight musc ...Read more

I have a large bruise on my lower leg that gets darker and more painful when I stand but decreases when the leg is elevated. I do have varicose vein issues. The bruise is now 2 weeks old and getting g worse not better?

Venous return.: It would seem that your condition and symptoms are related to venous pressure. Standing slows the return, therefore the color intensifies. Elevation assists the return, therefore, the color fades. You need to see a vein specialist to see if there is an associated vessel problem or is the problem due to trauma. ...Read more
