Swelling in left calf, groin area, right thigh, tightness in legs. Cure?

I have swelling in my left calf and right thigh. No SOB. It is very painful and makes walking hard to do. When I am on my feet for extended periods of time the swelling and pain is worse once I get off my feet. There is also swelling in the groin area. The legs feel tight, no redness or feeling of warmth in the affected limbs . No streaking.

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

From the edescription you provided there could not be any fracture. The swelling might have happened becuse of internal bruise or blood clot due to fall. Both can be taken care of by body itself with some external assistance.

Use warm water to sponge the area atleast thrice daily. Use olive oil or sesame seed oil to massage half an hour before hot water sponging. Redcuce the use of that leg for the period.

If no relief even after three days, contact a general physician for further advice.
