I don't know how I got it. I touched it and it hurt like a bruise normally would. I manged to make it to the tub and soaked in warm/hot water. I was kind of scared. I got out and could still feel the discomfort. It last for about two days and then it was gone. My bruise is still there. I hope it isn't a blod clot. I am not too sure how to tell the two apart. Do any of you have an idea of what it could have been?
if it had been a blood clot in your lergs
, both your legs would not have been affected -- just the one on which you'd have had the clot (i had one, that's how i know) ... and probably, just soaking your legs woluld not have relieved it (i had to take the deaded warfarin [aka coumadin] to relieve mine) ...
in any case, i'd tell my doctor about it, just to be safe ... and if it happens again, call the doctor immediately??
