Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Go to ER - blood tests like CK / electrolytes / D-dimer / blood counts may have to be checked...
Clinical examination is necessary / Doppler may have to be done...
Subsequently Psychiatric assessment and assistance are a must

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
