possible blood clot

i am a 35 year old male and have noticed about 3 days ago that my knee was swollen and that i was fine when i sat down and when i stood up is when i had felt it the pain. last night i was walking to room and felt a odd pain in my thigh i had a discoloration on my upper inner thigh the size of a plumb. it is not what i would say is a normal bruise from any kind of bumping it or any contact... it is warm to touch and and it hurts very bad if i push on it and the pain radiates.all around it...if i push hard i can feel i very tiny tiny knot, smaller than a pea. i have done a bit of reading on it and figured maybe i could be freaking out and that maybe my knee swolen and bruise are coeincadental and not related...i v confused my self on all the literature and not sure.... also if it would help i had surgery 2 months ago for a ripped bicep.. and most recentl have been hospitalized for 2 weaks for stomach digestive probelums and taking the prescription metoclopramide its generic for regalin.. Can some please help me evaluate these issues and determine weather or not i need to go back to hospital... i have had the different medical probelums lately and the last thing i want is to go back.. exspecialy if it is nothing. ty

Re: possible blood clot

You know, it does sound a little like a blood clot...especially with your recent surgery/hospitalization. I think you should at least call your dr.'s office (even if they are not open due to the holiday they should have a recording telling you an after-hours number to call) and if you can't reach them you may want to go to the er just to be safe.

Re: possible blood clot

I agree. It could be nothing, but there's a decent chance it could be a blood clot. And, if it is, it needs to be dealt with very soon.
