Chronic pain - no diagnosis
Hi, I have been suffering with fairly severe leg pains for more than a year with no diagnosis to date. For an extended period of time my GP regularly told me that it was all in my head and to get myself to the gym.
A few months later I suffered from a blood clot in a superficial vein from half way down my calf up to the deep vein junction in my groin. I was told to let nature take its course but due to the pain I was having real difficulties walking. Eventually I was treated with Anticoagulants due to the close proximity of the deep veins (5mm). Good news – the clot cleared but the pain never really subsided. It has now been 12 months and my pains are really getting me down.
I was recently referred to the dvt team but fortunately there was no evidence of another clot.
I am just not sure what to do next, I honestly feel like just accepting this chronic pain and making the best of it.
I have been referred to haematology but they quickly discharged me with no investigation. I am also awaiting sleep clinic results.
2 reasons for me posting: I needed to vent lol and wanted to find out if people have experienced similar?
