Been having pain in my right inner thigh close to a week. Burning and tenderness, also tingling in foot when I lay down. Could this be a clot?

Been having pain in my right inner thigh close to a week. Burning and tenderness, also tingling in foot when I lay down. Could this be a clot?

Easy to check: These symptoms would not be typical of a clot. Most clots are relatively silent, though could have swelling or sometimes redness of the skin in the area. These symptoms you describe sound more like a nerve issue. It's easy enough to get a doppler ultrasound of your leg to check for clot if you're concerned. Having your hip and your lower back evaluated could also be quite important. ...Read more

Huge very dark purple bruise right thigh discovered 2 days ago and is getting bigger, no pain or tenderness feel a small knot under skin?

Huge very dark purple bruise right thigh discovered 2 days ago and is getting bigger, no pain or tenderness feel a small knot under skin?

Bruise: You don't remember bumping into something? A large bruise without trauma is unlikely. The knot you feel is probably a blood clot under the skin that will dissipate on its own. The medications you listed should not cause your bruise. It will look worse before it looks better. If you think it was indeed spontaneous, you should really have your doctor check a CBC on you. ...Read more

Rash started big on one thigh. No itching, but some tenderness for a few hours - no pain now & rash decreased, but have developed blister like bumps?

In the absence of: A trauma, like a burn, it's unusual to have a painless rash that doesn't itch that turns into blisters. Herpes hurts, that's ur main blister causer but u would know. It may be fungal. Try some lotrimin (clotrimazole) with Hydrocortisone daily for a few weeks and go get seen if worsens or u get sick. ...Read more

I have a tattoo on my thigh that was for about 4 months ago now and I'm still feeling tenderness and aching around my leg. Could this be nerve damage?

I have a tattoo on my thigh that was for about 4 months ago now and I'm still feeling tenderness and aching around my leg. Could this be nerve damage?

Leg pain: It is plausible that with tattoo could have damaged a peripheral nerve. Is there any swelling at the site? It could be infected as well. I suggest that you see a local physician to have this site examined.
I did a sabbatical in the UK 15 years ago, so I know the difficulty in scheduling an appointment at the NHS. ...Read more

Have a small area on front of leg with sensitivity to touch-feels pins and needles-y when touched. Now also having a vibrating feeling in same leg.?

Have a small area on front of leg with sensitivity to touch-feels pins and needles-y when touched. Now also having a vibrating feeling in same leg.?

Leg tingling: Anatomically the leg refers to the area below your knee to your ankle. If you are having tingling and vibration in the anterior or anterolateral leg it can represent nerve pain from the back, sciatic nerve, or peripherally at the peroneal nerve. If also having back or buttock pain would look up high for cause. If none of that I would worry about changes at or around the lateral knee. ...Read more
