Re: blood clot symptoms

Hi there,
I am wondering the same as Millym. I had a DVT in my right calf two years ago. I had surgery on my back a few weeks earlier and had no idea what a DVT was! Well, I didn't listen to my body and the DVT became MANY pulmonary emboli. I had them in all four quadrants of the lungs and the even started to make a bridge between the lungs, this is called saddling. I finally went to the ER and when they found what I had, I was given a 50/50 chance of living through it. Every doctor I saw has told me that I am a walking miracle! Even with all these PE's and the damage that was done to my lungs to this day, I am afraid to go back to the dr to get checked for clots. I have had calf pain in my right leg for a couple of days and I do not want to go to the hospital. I don't really remember the pain or swelling or warmth in the calf from before. I do not have the pain all the time during the day but when it hits, it is very painful. Last night, I was up twice with restless leg syndrome. These are usually controlled well with meds. So this makes me wonder even more if there is a DVT. I guess I will just wait and see what happens. How does someone know when to get checked and when to wait it out? If someone could tell me, I would appreciate it a lot.

Exclamation blood clot?? please help!

Ok this is my symptoms and I am getting scared now, the first of this week I have had a cool warming sensation, like when you put icey hot cream on you, in my knee it does it every day, well, Thursday, after being on my feet all day, by the afternoon, my muscles in my leg was soooo weak, that I didn't think I was going to be able to walk anymore, but I made it to work the next day and the same thing, the sensation and weakness and I had to be on my feet all day again. Well this morning, Sat. I woke up and stood on my feet and I have this sharp muscle soreness in the back on my leg below my knee every time I take a step. I have been hopping since Thursday. I would appriciate any advise, I'm scared now cause I have been reading on blood clots. I'm 36 years old and never had heart problems or high blood preasure.
