Since october i have been experiencing a pulsating and pain in my calf. I have had a dvt blood test which was negative. Sent to orthapedic triage who said it was vascular. Went back to gp said its not and sent me to a neurologist (which i paid private for) again he said not neurological but maybe vascular. Now awaiting appointment for vascular specialist but pulsating is getting worse and the pain severe. Any ideas anybody. Im at my wits end with it.

  • Has anyone thought about imaging it with either MRI or CT?Just a thought. Sorry you are being ping-ponged back and forth between vascular and neuro. That must really suck!Hope one of them figures it out soon.Best Wishes
