Can anyone give me any type of diagnosis of this??? I have had a thin line that is extremely painful show up on the back of my left calf. It has been there for about 3 to 4 months. I remember this area became extremely swollen and hot to the touch about 4 months ago. I just thought it was a bad black and blue from banging it at some point. I never did have trauma to this area. The calf is extremely sensitive to touch and hurts like the dickens at times. I have had an ultrasound of the area for a blood clot but it was negative. I am seeing a Vascular surgeon on Thursday for what I am thinking is a DVT or Superficial. Just recently my left foot was extremely painful to walk particularly the inner part of foot - applying pressure. It looked bluish in color. I have also been hacking up some bloody saliva. However, this has been going on for almost 2 years. It only happens every once and a while but the last time it occurred (about 1 week ago) it was a fair amount. I am getting a wee-bit nervous about this. Anyone with an idea?

In the inner part of the foot there is Arteria Plantaris Med. The diagnose for your problem can be: Segmented Occlusions of the Crural Arteries. You shod consult your vascular Surgeon for the problem.Have a nice dayDon
