Dear patient,

Thanks for your health concerns. I believe that a visit to the provider who prescribes his blood pressure medications is indicated, since a physical examination of the affected leg, as well as cardiovascular examination, need to be conducted to see if it is a benign symptom or something worrisome that needs more specialized testing.

Truly yours,
