What causes burning, tingling and weakness in legs of a DVT patient?
I would explain as follows:
Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!
I carefully passed through your question and would explain that it is important performing a comprehensive differential diagnosis of different causes that may lead to this clinical scenario:
- peripheral neuropathy
- spinal canal stenosis (especially considering your cervical disc)
- peripheral arteriophathy.
I don't think your symptoms are related to the DVT, as your symptoms are bilateral and not typical of DVT.
Coming to this point, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical exam and some tests:
- a Doppler ultrasound of the leg vessels to examine the blood flow in them
- a nerve conduction study to investigate for possible polyneuropathy
- some blood lab tests (complete blood count, blood electrolytes, thyroid hormone levels, vitamin B12 levels, kidney and liver function tests) to exclude possible metabolic causes that may trigger this symptomatology.
Hope to have been helpful!
