Horrible sharp pain in leg. Inside of right leg. Comes and goes. Only lasts a few seconds. No other symptoms. Not swollen, not warm. Could it be dvt?

Need exam...: This is obviously difficult to answer w/o an examination. Gastroc muscle strain from 2 yrs ago should be healed by now unless u keep re- injuring it and could be missed possibly on MRI . Fibular stress fx., peroneal nerve injury and other less common diagnoses are in differential dx. See a board certified ors in your area for examination and/or get another opinion. Good luck! ...Read more

Get x-rays: Also take a look at the lumbar spine to make certain this is not due to lumbar disc disease. It is suspicious for that since you have pain even at rest. The fall could also have resulted in a compression fracture of the spine, resulting in leg pain. ...Read more

Charlie horse: This sounds like the type of spontaneous muscle spasm commonly known as a "charlie horse". To break the spasm place your foot flat on the floor and extend the knee. Hold the position as you stretch the muscle. You may need to do this a few times if the spasm returns when you end the stretch. ...Read more

I had swelling in my calf, stabbing pain in my armpit and breast. A dimer reading of 2236 but ultra sound on leg was clear. What next?

D dimer not specific: The d dimer test is not specific meaning that various conditions other than a clot can make it high. A persons age, recent trauma or current meds can affect the level. I would consider the possibility of a pulmonary embolism if you told me you were short of breath along with chest pain. You did mention pain in your arm pit and breast. See a doctor if this is a concern. ...Read more
