Patient Question

Hello Doctor


Could my leg pain and swelling stem from recent physical activities or indicate a risk of deep vein thrombosis due to factors like immobility or clotting disorders?



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Leg pain and swelling can result from various causes. Muscle strain often arises from overuse without adequate warm-up or rest. Deep vein thrombosis may occur due to prolonged static positions, like crossing legs. Ensure proper warm-up and rest to prevent strain. Avoid prolonged static positions and stay hydrated to lower DVT risk. If symptoms persist, seek medical evaluation.
