Unhappy Radianting feeling in left calf

Not sure which was the right forum to post this in for this topic.

My left calf just constantly pulses. Its kind of weird to explain. Just radianting. It doesnt do it all the time but sometimes it just goes and goes.
Anyone have a remote idea what this could be or whats causing it?

Re: Radianting feeling in left calf

are you feeling an actual real 'pulse' in that calf,or is this just like that area 'feels' like it is pulsating?there is a big difference thats why i am asking.is there any skin surface temp difference just over that area,like hotter than the rest of your leg?either way,i really do think you should have this evaluated by your doc.he or she can send you for a doppler ultrasound that would check for possible blood clots.they can actually see inside and check how well the blood flow is there for any possible blockages.if this were me,this is what i would do.you just want to be sure that this is not the beginnings of DVT(deep vein thrombosis).hopefully this isn't the issue but it does need to be ruled out.its a start in looking for the reason for this anyway.good luck and please let me know what you find out,FB
