I have a sore muscle in my thigh above my knee. It is tender to the touch & sore when walking. Aches at times when sitting. Any concern of blood clot?
Probably not: Blood clots usually form in the deep vessels of the leg. They can cause pain behind the knee and they often cause leg and ankle swelling. It sounds like you have a muscle strain, not a blood clot. Birth control pills do increase the risk for blood clots so it is important to stay active and not smoke. If you have swelling in one leg/ankle then it is a good idea to see a doctor. ...Read more

I tore a tendon/ muscle on my left foot. Had gone for treatments. Foot still feels tender when I stand or walk. How long before foot heals.
Depends: How long it takes a tendon/muscle injury (sprain, strain, etc.,) to heal depends on how serious the injury is. Since you have needed therapy, then the injury is not a minor one. It is also more noticeable because the injury occurred on your foot, which you have to use to walk. (An injured little finger, is easier to deal with, since you don't have to use it as often). Your Doc can tell you best. ...Read more

Yes.: It is not possible to properly diagnose the extent of the injury without a physical examination, even in the digital age.

Evaluating range of motion and extent of ecchymosis as well as palpation of the tissue is necessary to make the correct diagnosis and to determine the best treatment. ...Read more
