Dear patient

Thanks for your health concerns.

The symptoms are worrisome since they could represent an arterial or venous occlusion; these are probably the most important things to rule out.

I highly recommend you to be seen in urgent or emergent care by a provider who can perform a careful limb examination and determine if further testing such as ultrasound might be needed

Hooe this helps, wish you the best
