hey there,
Not sure if this is the right place to ask this....

last spring, I walked into the corner of my bed and got a niice bruise on my outter thigh. While it was healing, I did it again a couple times in the same spot. (along with the other leg. this bed is after me.. or I just can't walk) But, i still feel like there is a slight discoloration/bruise look to this spot. And I feel like there is a slight line, in that same discoloration, running from it around the front of my leg (very short). this coloring is so slight that i sometimes wonder if i'm just being paranoid.

And ever since, I sometimes feel 'twinges' in that spot. or random muscle aches in my thigh. And lately in other random places in my leg. These twinges are hard to explain... i can't tell if its an ache or a numbness or a tingle.

I know how serious DVTs can be. And I'm a worrywart so once I get an idea in my head, I'll worry nonstop. And this has been my concern. I wouldn't say any of this is 'pain' tho, which makes me feel like its not a dvt. I was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism and we're working out my meds... so I feel silly asking my doctor to check out this 'made up' bruise and phantom symptoms now haha. But if I could atleast get DVT out of my head, I'd feel better.

Thanks in advance!

Re: bruise/clots

It could be a bloodclot...does it feel hot? If you see a red streak running from that area, yes, I would definately at least have the dr check it out. Bloodclots can be deadly if not taken care of before going to lungs, heart and brain. I would say, get checked asap.
