Okay, last Sunday I went to the beach in Rhode Island, there were a lot of jellyfish, but I didn't get stung. So Monday I go to work, I work retail, and after one hour they sent me to the ER because my calf, right under the back of my right knee, was SO SWOLLEN, HUGE! So I went to the ER and they told me it's cellulitis, gave me Keflex, a shot of Toradol, and a Rx for Toradol. So I go home. By Thursday night it's KILLING ME but the giant swelling bubble, about the size of a grapefruit, has now gone down and is a BRUISE! But, there are HARD LUMPS inside of the bruise still and my leg and ankle are still slightly swollen. I go to the ER Thurs. night and a different doctor tells me its a cyst. Then I read about Baker's Cysts as well as Bloodclots. It's neither. Went to my regular doctor on Friday. She asked me a million questions and sent me for an ultrasound. They said it's not a bloodclot. So tomorrow AM I have to go for another ultrasound. They want to do one on my pelvis and stomach areas. I'm only 22 and a female. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??? Please tell me. The doctor also asked if I had headaches and trouble starting my urine stream, and others. All of the above I've had. In addition to a horribly screwy sleep schedule. Very erratic, almost nocturnal at time, and I sleep for like 3-6 hours in a clip, nap often, or I can just crash one day and sleep like 15 hours straight. This sleep thing might not be related, I don't know. But now it's Tuesday, 8 days since it started to get bad on my leg, and it's STILL VERY PAINFUL! Anyone had a similar experience and diagnosis??:confused::confused:
