I might be in the wrong place for this issue but thought maybe someone here might know
A few weeks ago I began having terrible cramping in my feet and legs at any time even while food shopping ! ( charlie horse cramps )
for some reason - those pains left
I still get them in my feet but much more under control now !
BUt -- there was one pain that did not leave and for a while I thought it was something left over from a charlie horse -
in my right upper calf , I had a pain only when I walked --
that pain has moved up to the spot behind the knee , just above the calf - only when I walk
that had me very concerned - about a clot or something
today it feels like it is alittle higher , just above that spot - above my knee ( in the back of my leg )
When I called the doc about 2 weeks ago - she gave me something for the "cramps"...when I clearly said it was NOT charlie horse cramps anymore but just a pain in the calf of my leg --
I dont have very good docs and am really just giving up on them - yet, I a really concerned that this is not a clot
does anyone know how I can find out ? or what other symptoms to look for ? It is not a terrilble pain , and I could tolerate it , yet, I know it does not belong there
thanks so much
