Pain back knee dvt

Common Questions and Answers about Pain back knee dvt


Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.

Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn I've been having an aching pain behind my knee for about a week now. I'm a 22 year old female that does take birth control, for about 7 years now. I'm mildly active but am often at a desk studying. I looked on the back of my knee and noticed there was a single vein that was about an inch long and very blue. It's not a spider vein but could possible be a forming varicose vein or could this dark blue vein be a sign of DVT?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
469720 tn?1388149949 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn and also the wrist pain has come back very 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?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn But then last night as I was walking I felt a mild sharp pain on the back of my left knee that lasted for a second then went away. I suddenly felt light-headed and somewhat dizzy and my heart started beating faster and I couldn't breathe like usual. My left leg felt really tired as I was sitting down. But today I feel fine. I don't feel any pain on my leg. I have already gone to an internist and he didn't think there was anything wrong and said it was very unlikely to be DVT. What should I do?
290867 tn?1333572878 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.
Avatar m tn I’m worried there is a DVT that was missed in the ER ultrasound and that I could have a dangerous clot growing/potential for a pulmonary embolism. I wonder if that very severe foot pain a while back was a clot that has slowly moved up in my leg and started growing. Could my intense pain and symptoms (including pulsing and heaviness) just be nerve pain that’s related to the vein?
Avatar n tn 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's very odd. Thank you.
Avatar f tn 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.
16702 tn?1234094245 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 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?
Avatar m tn 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???
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar m tn Unlike previous lower back pain I found it difficult to find a comfortable position. The next day the pain cleared up by 90%. On day three it was still present but remained a minor pain. However as the days have progressed I have had new pains on my left leg, predominantly in the calf muscle. It seems to get worse when sitting for longer periods of time. My initial thoughts were Sciatic nerve and to just take ibuprofen until it subsides.
Avatar m tn I'm 15 years old I have this achy pain or tightness feeling in my calf and behind the knee. I know symptoms of DVT/PE from prior knowledge from Anatomy class at school. I have no family history of clotting disorders. I do suffer from anxiety disorder, which has been made worse with my grandmothers diagnosis with pancreatic cancer. There is no swelling as I can tell as well as no warmth maybe only because I wear certain clothing that may contribute to that.
Avatar n tn 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.
432097 tn?1318552340 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.
Avatar m tn 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!!!
Avatar n tn 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.
