Brief Answer:
Need to rule out weakness, clots

Detailed Answer:
Hi there is.

Thanks for the query.

Do you have limb weakness?

Any tingling or numbness?

Any history of trauma?

Left leg thumping due to feeling of heaviness can be due to muscle weakness, clot formation, swelling etc.

Do get a Doppler study to rule out clot in the veins. An MRI lumbosacral spine to rule out slip disc which can cause lower limb weakness.

Please do provide more information for me to be in a better position to help you.

Thanks and regards.
