Hi there.. Recently my grandmother (age 83) had shown symptoms of a blood clot... severe pain/cramping in leg, skin discoloration/bruising, swelling, dizziness, chest pains. She was taken to the emergency room where they ruled out it being a clot.
They suggested possible nerve compression or damage. Does this sound right?
What confuses me is the discoloration on her leg. It is on the right lower part of her left shin. It looks almost like a bruise, but different in that it looks as if it's growing.. the lower outside half is a lighter, brighter red color, and the upper part is a darker reddish purple.
She does not recall falling or having any trauma to this area.
Is it normal for nerve problems to result in bruising? And what other possibilities are there?
Thanks for any insight.
