|13-6-2009 - stressed and worried
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Okay so I am officailly stressed and worried something is wrong with my leg. What happened was three days ago I started to get a mild muscle ache like I pulled or overworked the muscle in my thigh. The pain has just gotten progressively worse and i can't think of a single reason why it would hurt like this. The pain is like a weird hot inflamed feeling muscle ache kinda. Its all over my thigh from my knee up the front and to the side of my leg, the outer side. It hurts the worst when i go from sitting to standing or standing to sitting, walk up stairs, crouch to pick something up ect. I have also noticed a numbness in my foot and toes when im sitting. I have no swelling or hotness to the touch or redness etc. But I have noticed the past few weeks I am getting these tiny blue vein looking things almost bruise colored. So I go to the ER today cause im terrified its a blood clot. I know being pregnant, plus over weight, plus sitting alot can make you more prone to clots as well as having the small vein things. So the doctor basically says if it was a clot I would have gotten it in my calf not my thigh and if it was in my thigh my whole leg would be swollen. He said its not an emergency and sent me home told me to see my family doctor if it was still bothering me next week. So now I have talked to two people, one on here and one of my good friends who had clots so bad she almost lost her leg with her son. Both have said it started like a dull muscle ache that got worse. They both said they had no swelling at first. My friend had to go back like three times before the doctors would test her. Now shes freaking out for me cause it sounds like what she had and making me freak out. I don't know what to do other then go back to the ER and demand they do a blood test to rule it out. I hate the doctor I saw this is the second time he said to me nothing was wrong, the first was when i fell and badly bruised my foot when pregnant the last time and needed to be on crutches. He refused to even x-ray it and sent me home. I guess if its stil bugging me I will go back tomorrow and push the issue a little more or go to my doctor on Monday who I am sure will be more sympathetic then stupid ER doctors.

Honest babe, Its all good for him to send you away because he feels it isnt what you think but you have yours and babies life at risk if he is 'god forbid' wrong which is all to often in this day and age. pooka
