Hi it's me again. This is the latest symptom. My left leg has been hurting awhile now whenever I stand up and walk on it and two days ago I noticed it was really swollen. Naturally I went to the doctor worried it might be DVT. She checked it. It isn't red or hot but it is tender. She measured both my legs and found the left one was 3cm thicker than the right one. She said I should get to the emergency room immediately. After waiting for 3 hours they checked me out and I was given an ultrasound. They found no clot. When I asked what it might be they seemed baffled, and sent me home. When I lie down the pain goes away but the swelling doesnt go down. It doesn't stop me from sleeping. It just hurts whenever I get up and walk around on it. Any ideas what might be wrong?
PS I was checked for kidney stones a month or so ago, because of left flank pain. I had a CT scan which was normal. That pain has gone. All the same on Monday I am having a cystoscopy as a follow up, something I'm not looking forward to.
