Doctor :   Do you feel it on touch ?
User :   i can feel the vibration but when i go to touch it i cant feel the exact spot gthe vibration is at
Doctor :   ok, where exactly do you feel the vibration , is it at the middle of the the inguinal region ( at the site of the femoral artery ) ?
User :   it is in my right groin right above my above my right testicale
Doctor :   do you have any other symptom in the right lower limb ?
User :   just that my calfs always ache but i always thought that was because i am on my feet all day
Doctor :   it could also be due to insufficient blood supply to the muscle , and the vibration being the murmur in the artery supplying the area due to mild blockade
Doctor :   i would advice you to get a Doppler scan of the femoral artery
Doctor :   to confirm the fact
User :   ok . if it is that what could the remedy be
Doctor :   depends on the severity of the block
Doctor :   could be medicinal treatment in mild cases and surgery in severe
