I am female, 28, 135, 5'8 - Athletic and Healthy... approx four or five says ago I noticed my left knee hurt on the outer area and knee cap area, it looked slightly like a bruise but a dark one that came quick, almost a gray/light purple. Slowly it has begun getting numb, not painful, no pain when I bend over or squat, yes there's pain when I scrub the floors on my knees but I associated that with anything... putting pressure on it wrong. :rolleyes: Well today it is extremely numb, to the point of freaking me out and I can feel a slight numbness in my left ankle now also. It's tingly like its fallen asleep and almost feels cold internally but normal warmth to the touch. I am scared it may be a blood clot and I have read that they can be serious, or maybe it's something worse! :eek: I however am the type to let it go and it usually goes away. I have never had anything like this happen to me before and it's unnerving. I know most of you will say to go to a Dr. and I plan on it... when my insurance at my new job kicks in on January 9th, otherwise I'll have to pay $100's plus in med bills and I just can not afford it. :mad: Has anyone ever experienced this problem and or has any advice or insight to give me. I sincerely appreciate it!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
