My left leg has been giving me some grief for the past couple weeks. It doesn't hurt. It feels like there is some pressure from the lower calf to just above the knee. I almost feels like my leg is starting to fall asleep. it is more annoying than anything but me in my panicky state starts to think into it too much. To I have deep vein thrombosis (blood clot), restless leg syndrome, am I going to have a stroke? I also thought maybe it is my sciatic nerve. It comes and goes but today it is really bad. I also just woke up from a nap with my leg elevated and my blood pressure was through the roof. I hate this.

Dear Jenny,

Hello, this is Kitt.  I am sorry but we really cannot answer your question. I feel you should make an appointment to see your doctor as we are not healthcare professionals and can not dx.  Our forum is a support forum and we can support you and help you through the anxiety.

Try not to over think the calf problem but get it evaluated by a physician and  know that if it is a phelbitis  or something else your physician will plan your care.

Take some deep breathes and know you will be ok.

Take care and good luck.  Keep posting for support with your anxiety.
