Have pain up and down left leg and left foot. I've been keeping it elevated all day. I hope its not a blood clot. I also took three Bayer aspirins.?
Take aspirin if I think I have a blood clot in leg dvt? Pain on inner leg just above knee, and hurts when palped. Is it safe to wait till tom for dr.
Ultrasound: Aspirin won't hurt, but it won't dissolve a thrombus (clot) if that is what you have. You should see a doctor asap and get an ultrasound. If you do have a clot and it breaks free, it could travel to you lungs and cause serious problems (pulmonary embolus). It may not be a clot after all, but I wouldn't want to take any chances. ...Read more

33 years old. Broke ankle 3 weeks ago. In fiberglass cast. Should I worry about blood clots? Haven't been taking aspirin. Should I? Too late to work?

Could this be a blood clot in my calf? I feel a hard knot on my upper right calf (inner calf). It seems to be near a vein. Could it be a clot? If so, how fast do clots travel? I just discovered it last night and took aspirin. There was a bruise in that a
If you had a bruise in this area a week or so ago, you may just be feeling the induration (hardness) caused by the inflammatory response to blood in the soft tissue of your leg. This can take several weeks to finally resolve (warm packs may hasten healing).
Even if this is a clot, it probably doesn't represent any particular health hazard. Superficial clots -- the ones you can feel beneath the skin of your leg -- aren't usually dangerous. The clots that can send fragments into your circulation, and thence to your lungs, are those located in the deep veins of your leg (hence the term "deep vein thrombosis"). Symptoms of deep vein thrombosis, or dvt, can be pretty vague: swelling or a sense of fullness in the leg, aching, or redness may be the only signs of a dvt, and many times not even these signs and symptoms are present. Once a DVT forms, there's no way to accurately predict whether you'll have a pulmonary embolism (lung clot), although clots that extend above the knee tend to fragment and embolize more often than those below the knee.
If you did have a pulmonary embolism, it could affect your heart rhythm, but other symptoms could also occur: shortness of breath, anxiety, chest pain, dizziness, passing out, or even cardiac arrest and death.
I've attached a couple of links that might be of interest to you. Again, the lump you feel in your leg is probably not dangerous, but see your doctor if you have any concerns.

Anticoagulation: You must see your doctor, who may refer you to a vascular specialist, and be anti-cpagulated right away. Often the clot (s) will dissolve if no new ones are allowed to form if the body is permitted to heal itself. ...Read more
Why do I keep getting blood clot in my left leg when my hemoglobin is high and my factor 5is normal?
A Deep Vein Clot?: If you you have been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) more than once you may need to treated lifelong with blood thinners. Normal hemoglobin doesn't affect your risk of dvt. Factor v leiden is one one the many factors that may need to be tested to make sure that you do not have a hereditary or acquired hypercoagulable state. Another risk factor for DVT is immobility and certain surgeries. ...Read more
I have blood clot in my left leg so I stopped eating food with vitamin K and now my red blood cell count iron folate (folic acid) b 12 dropped?
K doesn't cause clot:
While Vit K is needed for blood to clot, avoiding K doesn't reduce the risk of clots! The only reason to avoid is if you're on warfarin as K can interfere with it, but research shows being on some K actually stabilizes the effects of warfarin. The important thing is to have a consistent amount & then adjust warfarin dose. See http://bit. Ly/1hHlMAv
Foods rich in K are good sources of iron/folate. ...Read more

How can I tell if I have a blood clot right behind my knee? Pain & mild swelling behind knee on left leg. I'm only 18, normal weight but sedintary.
Lymphedema.: Blood clots in the leg (DVT) can lead to chronic venous insufficiency which results in the leg becoming discolored brown from the calf down, thickened and swollen. This then leads to blockage of the lymphatic channels in the leg which leads to lymphedema. This becomes a chronic condition and the swollen leg can ooze or drain this clear lymphatic fluid. You should see a vein specialist asap. ...Read more
All dvts are sreious: Deep vein thrombosis is always serious no matter what the cause and should be treated with anticoagulants.

I kitchen chair fell hard on my outer lower left leg about 11/2 in above my ankle my. What the chances of getting a blood clot? Shld I get it chkd out
How Superficial.: Although the chances of getting a deep vein clot are low, the chances of getting a more superficial clot are more likely. This type of clot requires only a minor degree of treatment. Fortunately, these types of clots seldom lead to serious problems. Treatment is usually minimal, including aspirin, Tylenol, (acetaminophen) possibly some moist heat with elevation. ...Read more
Can blood clots cause intermittent pain at rest? I get several deep, localized pains in my left leg and left arm that seem to only occur at rest.
Swelling in left leg not a lot but you can see the difference. Blood clot was ruled out by d-dimmer. What could it be? Thank you
Lymphedema: The possibility exists that there has been an impedance of lymph flow in one leg. Also, circulatory flow may be compromised by such things as varicose veins. A third possibility that comes to mind would be a foot alignment issue that can exist unilaterally, such as a flatfoot. These things don't have great risk to you, but should be evaluated by a primary care physician. ...Read more

Left leg calf pain felt yday and today evening. Could this wait till Monday to be seen by a doctor? Anyway to self-recognize if it's due to blood clot?
CalfOfOne1/2dozOther: Usually there is some swelling and if you press on the calf it may be tender and you may feel a rubbery cord. Usually (but not always) there is some underlying reason to get the clot, like recent injury, or sitting a long time in the car or on a plane ride, or you have a medical problem like infection or cancer that makes you more likely to clot. You could wait if it stays the same, but not if worse. ...Read more
Lately have been feeling pain on my right leg. It feels crampy and it feels harder than my left leg. Could it be a blood clot? I've been on Depo 3yrs
Could be: Depoprovera is not typically a birth control method that is associated with blood clots as it does not contain Estrogen. It is still a good idea to have an examination of your leg to make sure that all is well. Schedule a visit for an exam. The lifetime recommendation for Depo is 5 years. Consider changing to an IUD or Implant to avoid the bone loss for long term depo use. ...Read more
