I've been searching everywhere for an explanation of what might be going on with my right leg (minus going to a doctor, which I can't afford at the moment).

My right leg has a constant feeling of "trying to fall asleep", and a very dull ache to it. Feels pretty cold a lot of the time (on the inside, not exterior). Also, when standing, I've noticed that when I follow a large vein/artery from my lower leg, to right behind my right knee, there's a "knot" or "lump" on the vein/artery, or so it seems.

I'm not in any severe pain. However, it's been going on for 2 days now, and it's becoming pretty bothersome.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

  • Ahh, that's what I was "afraid of". I was hoping it was a lower-back issues.The vein behind my knee feels as if it "knots up" or "balls up". I can feel a lump on the vein when I'm standing up, especially. Bleh...Anyone know of anything I could do to relieve it? Maybe a certain type of exercise, or taking aspirins daily, or things like that?
