left leg and foot are numb
i'm not sure where to post this so i'm posting this here, hoping anyone would know. thanks in advance for the help.
yesterday i spent the day walking and when i came back home and took my shoes off i noticed my left toes were numb. i thought it was because i was tired so i massaged them a little and tried to forget about it, but it wouldn't go away. when i woke up this morning it was still there and it was also on my foot and a little bit on the leg also. i must also say i'm under A LOT of stress because of a personal situation (if you read my last thread... i'm still dealing with that situation) so i'm thinking it could be a mixture between being tired from all the walking and being stressed. but i was reading about blood clots causing these symptoms and i started to freak out. i'm 27 and until a couple of months (that i moved) i was eating healthy... not so much right now that i'm eating a lot of junk food. too bad. i also have to say i have history of high blood pressure in my family but i have been controlling my blood pressure pretty well without needing any medication, the last time that i checked.
i think that's all. oh, i took an aspirin (bad thing self medication, i know, but it's just an aspirin) just in case.
