Fever. Red/purplish tinge, pain, tenderness in legs as result of tight boots. Need Doctor's consultation?

Hi, me left lower leg has turned red/purple after having worn tight Wellington boots. For the last few days I have had high fever and virtually no energy. The pain now goes up most of my leg and is very painful when I walk. The inside of my entire left leg is now also tender to the touch. Is this something that I should be concerned about and see my doctor?

The description you have provided is very much similar to deep vein thrombosis therefore it is recommended to visit your doctor for immediate check and evaluation and avoid exertion.
