Common Questions and Answers about Pain back knee dvt

pain

Hi, I was diagnosed a week and a half ago with a chronic DVT. I had an ultrasound. The technologist let me see it. I have good blood flo around it. My GP is treating it with coumadin. He thinks it was there in Feb. when I had an ultra sound. At that time, I was told there was no clot. The end of March, I had trauma to my ankle. The pain went away but the swelling didn't. My leg swelled again and didn't go down. My doctor thought it was lymph edema, but decided to recheck for DVT again.
A few days later I developed sharp pains in the back and chest. The pain is deep and extremely painful, shortness of breath and a cough. I went to the ER and they did a CT with contrast on my lungs, a xray of the knee, and a d-dimer blood test, all came back normal. SO my question is what is the chance that i still have a DVT or PE? I'm really nervous and have no other clue as to what this pain could be. I'm completely bed ridden and know it cannot be something pulled and what not.

I am very scared I have DVT. I had a dull pain in my calf for months. It seems like the pain gets worse when I lay down and move my toes / feet up words . There is also a heavy feeling or fullness in my calfs somedays . I have endured long haul flights over Christmas and this fall that have been over 5 hours long. I know I have moved very little during These flights. I read online that can cause DVt as well. I am a 29 year old Male 6'3" and 293.5 pounds.
I couldnt really walk on the leg and i deffantly couldnt get back to sleep. The pain eventually subsided and i managed to get a couple hours sleep. Upon waking up the leg pain was replaced with what felt like a stiff muscle that you normally get after working out and it was swollen. I went to the the doctors who suspected a blood clot and as it was a weekend gave me an injection in the stomach and arranged a scan on monday as well as blood test.
For the past few weeks I have been experiencing pain the same leg and severe pain in the back of my knee that is swollen (just in the back of the knee). Previously when I had the DVT my leg was very painful but not until a couple weeks later did my whole leg swell.
For the past 3-4 weeks I have been having calf pain in my right leg, which sometimes goes into my shin and behind my knee, and thigh occasionally. I have seen my family doctor who thought it was a pulled muscle from me doing some light exercise, and thought my muscles were tight and I needed to stretch. I have since seen a sports medicine doctor and he said he thought I pulled my calf muscle or maybe teared it? He put me in a compression stocking and says I need to see him back in a month.
Wow, I am recovering from this now. I had DVT behind my left knee i was in the Hospital for 4 days. I could not walk for almost 6 weeks. I went to my Primary Dr after not be able to walk for 6 days. He sent me straight to the hospital to get a ultra sound on my leg and it showed nothing. My Dr said there is nothing there. I do not know why, you can not walk or have so much pain. So after a few more days of having pain that brought tears to my eyes it hurt so much. My Wife took me to the ER.
Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to identify the cause of knee pain in your case. With DVT ruled out other possibilities that may need to be considered include infections, inflammations, tendonitis, bursitis, fractures, patellar dislocation, injuries to the internal knee ligaments/ menisci, infections/ inflammations, arthritis, cyst formation, bone growths/ masses, nerve injuries etc. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for an evaluation and appropriate management.
What are the causes of DVT? Generally, a DVT is caused by a combination of two or three underlying conditions: slow or sluggish blood flow through a deep vein a tendency for a person’s blood to clot quickly irritation or inflammation of the inner lining of the vein. There are a variety of settings in which this clotting process can occur.
since i came home 4 months ago i have put on 5 stone in weight which is not only affecting my joints and muscles,( i have terrible back pain, and my legs are really painful cos i still have the DVT), but its making me so depressed. i'm always tired. i have been to so many doctors but no one can help me. when the doctors find out that they cant get blood out of me cos all of my veins are collapsed they tend to lose interest.
and also the wrist pain has come back very strong..it seems like the two are connected b/c when i feel alot of pain in my thigh i usually dont feel any in my wrist n vice versa..i dont beleive the wrist pain is carpel tunnel b/c i dont have any of the other symptoms..numbness or shooting pains..i am now questiong dvt only b/c i went through a real depressive period in my life and hardly had any exercise..what i dont understand is if it is dvt why do i have pain in my arm and leg?
I take no medications. I have been having a slight pain (more like a burning) in the crease of my right knee for the past 4-5 days. It increases & decreases in severity but is more a nuisance than debilitating. Yesterday the pain/burning was on & off in my right calf too. I didn't make much of it since I have a tendency to sit on my foot while working & prefer my right foot over my left. So my knee is often compressed for hours and I figured I had pinched a nerve.
Was treated for DVT (blood clot) back of knee for past 6 months. Was on blood thinner. During this time, developed pain when skin back of leg was touched, 12" above knee and 12" below knee. Very painful. Completed with blood thinners but pain continues. Dr. has know idea what is causing the pain and just instructed to take Advil.
when this happened I had a bowel blockage which I think caused the dvt. I was having some pain using the walker to go to bathroom, I also had some pain in my feet. Then when I was released I had pain and couldn't put pressure on my leg. The nurse said it was due to low potassium and gave me more pills to take( I had had very low potassium in dka and it was still low. (NO!!!) What an idiot!!! ) By the time I got home I had severe pain which got worse and worse and some swelling.
I am not a cancer patient but for months now i have been suffering from a sharpe pain in my right leg. It starts from my thighs down to my knee. I told my doc maybe i have a pinched nerve. It hurts when i walk, sit, lay everything! After reading what kimchi said above i think that could be what i have...now im very scared, what kinda test can my doc do to see if i have Deep Vein Thrombosis? And is it something that can lead to cancer?
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The commonest cause is DVT and clots and post exercise. Pain in the calf area can also be due to pinched spinal nerves in the lumbo-sacral area or a pinched nerve at the knee joint. A nerve conduction study should be done. A MRI of the lumbar spine should also be able to throw some light. A deep vein thrombophlebitis or intermittent claudication (spontaneous spasm and relaxation of arteries) can also cause similar symptoms.
I have NO lump or bump behind my knee. THe pain is a throbbing pinching pain. (maybe even a pinched nerve)? It is worse when i am sitting for long periods and then stand to walk. I'll have to limp for less than a minute, and then it will go away on its own (for a bit). I guess i'd like to know your opinions on what else it could be? Sometimes it feels like pressure, other times burning..it's very odd. Thank you.
had a pe in 2000..on percosets for pain in my knees and lower lumbar and facet..they say i cant get a knee replacement till in 50,s WHY IS THIS????? i have 2 negative blood protiens...please explain the pros and cons of the pain killer methadone???
I noticed that there is some pain in the tendon that seems to run from the back of the knee down to my foot. Its been a little sore for about a week but now it seems to be getting worse. I noticed for the first time today that my calf is swollen and that my knee is too but not as bad as my calf. The pain gets worse if I fully extend my leg and point my toes up. Im assuming this is from some sort of an injury?
Not to mention, your symptoms don't sound anything like a DVT. Classic DVT symptoms present around the knee area, specifically behind the knee and there is almost ALWAYS marked redness and the area is VERY warm to touch. A PE may cause symptoms like you mention, but being that your "DVT" symptoms are not at all likely, I would doubt that. There is a MUCH simpler answer here that is alluding you! The H1N1!!!
I also have had pain and swelling behind my left knee for well over a year. The pain radiates into my calf. The pain now will be sharp at times and also a tearing feeling at times. I have had ultra sounds several times to check for DVT's and Baker's Cyst (long history of torn meniscus and arthritis in knee). DVT and cyst are always negative.
Ive had both knees replaced, both hips replaced and will have both my left shoulder replaced this year. All the replacements feel good no pain at all except for my right knee ever since i came out of this bilateral replacement done two years ago it hasnt been "right". It took longer to have motion after surgery and now their is a significant pain across the front lower portion of my knee. It's caused me to go back to using my walker.
The commonest cause of pain or cramps in the calf is DVT and clots and post exercise. It can also be due to pinched spinal nerves in the lumbo-sacral area or a pinched nerve at the knee joint. A nerve conduction study should be done. A MRI of the lumbar spine should also be able to throw some light. A deep vein thrombophlebitis or intermittent claudication (spontaneous spasm and relaxation of arteries) can also cause similar symptoms.
The knee gets a little better each day, but is still very tight and swollen but the pain is tolerable so I've weaned myself off of the crutches. My problem is my calf. If I'm on it very long at all, it starts burning. I would be concerned about a blood clot, but I've had issues with that calf for years off and on. About 10 years ago I was checked for a blood clot using ultrasound and it was negative. Anytime I over use this leg, it seems that the calf acts up but goes away in a few days.
Before I had my hips replaced I had pain that would start in my, um, rear end, shoot down the back of my thigh, SKIP my knee area and continue down the back of my calf. After the hip surgery the sciatic pain disappeared. My guess is that the hip pain was altering the way I walked, sat, stood, etc, which can easily lead to pain elsewhere in the body. If you've been on mtx alone in the past and it didn't work, try it again and combine it with one of the newer meds like Enbrel or Humira.
I posted in a diff one last night..no answer. I have pain from the back of my calf muscle radiating UP to my hamstring..when I walk. I took myself to the ER last night..of course I was thinking the worst...DVT..blood clots, since i sit 8 hrs a day at work. They did blood work, and checked me out, pronounced me fine and that was that. Well, I am in pain today! I am a sendary person pretty much...I do take 8 flights of stairs down from work each day..and do some walking to and from work..
I'm only 34 years old but couldn't stand the severe pain in my right knee. I had 7 scopes and one major operation on the knee before this point. After leaving the hospital I had to go back in with severe calf pain. I was back in the hospital for another 4 days. Now I am at home and still having semi-severe knee pain. I can't find a location to rest my knee that gives it any relief. Anyone have any suggestions to lesson some pain? Does a swimming pool do anything?
I have an update to the question below that I posted awhile back. I'm updating this in the event someone else is searching for answers to a similar issue. The culprit of my shortness of breath was not the warfarin to treat the DVT in my right leg...it was two blocked coronary arteries! Four days ago, I had an angiogram that quickly became an angioplasty with stent placements into two arteries that were 99-percent and 80-percent blocked.
Since a few days have past now my right knee cap is swollen like a melon as if I had knee surgery but no pain down the calf just cant bend or move it a slight pain in the back. Is this from putting weight on it do to the left knee? Or is all of this a serious Vascular problem. Who is the correct doctor and WHY or WHY is this happen and in both knees and swelling in the one leg right and of course the left calf which is always there. Who do I see? is it a reaction from all the thinners.
