I have still been feeling well.....I do tend to tire out easier towards the end of the day. Today, I woke up with pain and tenderness in my right calve. I do tend to have cramping in my lower legs off and on, but it's usually both instead of one. There is no color or temp. difference in my legs, but the pain is still there this afternoon and it seems to have radiated around to my shin. It just feels tight like I've pulled something, but I know I haven't done anything lately to cause this and I was fine when I went to bed last night and woke up with it this morning. It's not that bad, but I still wonder if I should get it checked out. I do take coumadin and haven't heard the results of my Tues. protime......Not sure if I should worry or not.

Dear Heather

Better safe than sorry and it sounds like you suspect a clot anyway. Get checked out ASAP!

and let us know how it turns out,

Sarah

the pain was gone the next morning, so i didn't worry about it anymore. if it was still there i was going to call the dr. i wasn't sure what it was, but was hoping it wasn't a clot.......... guess not.........thank goodness.........
