What can be reasons for minor pain in my upper left calf? You can see a visible green vein there. I'm going to the doctor on the 15th. Can it wait?

What can be reasons for minor pain in my upper left calf? You can see a visible green vein there. I'm going to the doctor on the 15th. Can it wait?

Probably minor.: Calf pain is always of concern because of the potential to be due to a clot (superficial or deep). What you are describing has none of the characteristics of a deep clot and, although you see a green vein, it also doesn't sound like a superficial clot. Other things can cause calf pain such as muscle pull, trauma or straining. If you have worsening pain then you should see your doctor sooner. ...Read more

Psychiatry: When one perceives something in their body that a physician cannot see or examine and all other vitals and signs of health are normal...Then one may need to see a counselor about how their mind is perceiving their physical condition. You are not in any way describing a common medical or health condition. Using the words 'rushing' non stop, if your physical exam is normal, represents misperception. ...Read more

I had an IV 8 days ago and played volleyball tonight and where the IV was swelled and got a huge bruise like the a blowout vein. Should I see a doctor?

Hematoma: Where the vein had been punctured for the IV the force of the volleyball has allowed for re-bleeding. Ice the area and apply a compression bandage to prevent further bleeding into the area. It's going to be sore for a few days and the bruising is going to take a while to go away. If you have any pain extending distally (away from torso) then get it looked at. ...Read more

Hit my leg with the car door and hit a vein. I have a bruise bout 3 inchs across and still pretty hard in the middle - should I see a doctor?

It'll be OK: Odds are it will be OK without needing to see a doctor. It will probably take a few weeks to resolve. The discoloration will probably spread as well and you may even see it as far down as your ankle. If you develop fever, pain, shortness of breath or inability to walk then seek medical attention. ...Read more

What kind of doctor to see for My mom has a sharp pain in her vein from her butt to her leg. It hurts when she walks and stands but not when she sits.

You mean nerve not: Vein. Usually the sciatic nerve involves the pathway you're describing. Normally most people don't have pain symptoms from veins, unless there's a varicose vein that's very painful that might be in your mom's leg. She needs to see her PCP for further medical advice, and S/he will recommend PT, meds your mom can take. Also a DO, or doctor of osteopathic medicine can provide osteopathic treatment for relief. ...Read more

I have a lump and pain in vein on hand where I recently had an i.v. I have a history of DVT and pe. Could this be a clot? Should I see my doctor?

Maybe: This could be a local superficial phlebitis from the IV. Not uncommon at all. A small area of clot and inflammation or irritation that will go away. Warm compresses may help. I would not seek any further help unless it gets worse. Could also be a hematoma as another physician noted. This too will go away with time. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my doctor says nothing's wrong, but I can see some unusual vessels in my eyes?

Seeing them where?: Are these unusual vessels on the surface so you can see them in the mirror? Or are they seem as a venous pattern in the back of the eye when light hits the eye at an angle? You describe these vessels as unusual but your doctor (hopefully an ophthalmologist) says they are normal. I would rely on that information and not worry. ...Read more
