Horrible Pain in my left leg, I'm home alone

Nov 06, 2016 3:30 PM

I got up this morning and my leg hurt a little bit but nothing to be worried about. Daughter and I went to the store while hubby and Son went to pick up my Step Daughter from her grandmother's house and while we were at the store daughter ran into a friend of hers and a plan was made so now she is with her friend and Will be home after church, during the course of the day the pain in my leg got worse and now my left leg is throbbing pain none like I have ever experienced before, it hurt to drive home from the store with my leg just hanging down. What do I do? What could it be?? I can't have anything go wrong right now so close to the adoption being finished! Just 2 week's away from the court date!

Is your leg swollen? Does it feel muscular? It's possible it could be a blood clot, especially if it's unlike any other pain and is throbbing or painful to walk. If it continues to hurt go to the ER, especially if you begin to feel short of breath. Elevate it and try an ice pack of hearing pads with a gentle massage. Sending hugs love & prayers it starts easing up soon! 🙂💕🙏🌸

Is it higher up going downward? Maybe bursitis?

If the pain is in your lower leg and it's feeling heavy or swollen and you are getting increased pain instead of relief, I would do as Flappsy suggested. Go to the ER. They will do a doplar to check for clots or anything else that may be going on. Sending you well wishes and hoping that you find relief and that it's nothing serious. {{{Hugs}}}💕😊🤗

The pain has stayed in one spot and it has only gotten worse. As soon as my daughter gets home I am going to the ER and getting it looked at.

Just left the ER and they say it's a muscle spasm, so I guess when I get home I will do everything I have already done and pray it stops! This is crazy hurting but test's came back negative, Thank God for that, no blood clots! I will take a muscle relaxer when I get home and put a heating pad on it and pray.

Glad it's not a clot. Try to do some stretching and self massage if possible. Hugs

Oh wow so happy that it's not a clot, I know that doesn't help with the pain but at least it's not as serious as a clot.
Maybe try having a nice hot bath with a cup or two of Epsom salts.....he heat of the bath and the muscle relaxing of the salts might ease the cramps for you.
Sending you healing prayers xx

Hang in there, you got this!!! I'm glad you went and it wasn't a clot. {{Hugs}}💕😊

I'm glad it's not a color! Did they give you a total shot? It would have helped. Try Epsom salt bath, or soak a cloth in Epsom salt water and last around the muscle. Hugs love & prayers you start feeling better soon! 🙂💕🙏🌸
