Does blood clotting cause swelling in the leg of a person having LgMD ?

foot pain, I do not walk because of lgmd. My feet do dangle at times. The top of my foot has become swollen and tender to touch. When I rub it it hurts worse, and I noticed the pain spreads up my leg, but just the lower part. I worried it could be a blood clot.

Hi,thanks for query.Lack of exercise in muscles due to prolonged inactivity can lead to problems.In such cases it is better to get in touch with your doctor.You may have some infection or as you are suspecting some thrombosis in veins.If possible please try to support your foot on a pillow when you go to sleep,while seating you can use a step stool.Do consult your doctor.
