When To Worry About Leg Pain?

Occasionally, it is prudent not to second guess the situation to avoid unnecessary delays in the treatment process. When you experience leg pain, your quality of life may be adversely affected, especially if you cannot move freely. You should worry about leg pain when you experience sudden and intense leg pain without any apparent cause. This is because you may suffer from deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or strained muscles. If leg pain occurs as a result of a fall, an accident, or a significant trauma, a physician should be consulted. A fracture or sprain, as well as other injuries, will be assessed during this examination. 

Symptoms of a dead leg, DVT, or other circulatory issue may include swelling, redness, heat, and pain. Nerve compressions, such as sciatica or peripheral neuropathy, can cause leg pain accompanied by numbness, tingling, or weakness. If your leg pain persists or worsens over time, its not a good sign. You should seek medical attention if you suffer from any of the above conditions, particularly if you have a family history of blood clots.
