Heavy legs and cramps post TIA
My otherwise healthy, young(50) husband experienced a TIA last Feb.  He had been diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism 3 years earlier due to DVT in legs (origin unknown, he had none of the traditional risk factors, although he has had a history of knee problems from a soccer injury).  No abnormal blood factors, slight sleep apnea (but not using a machine).

He is now taking aspirin , Lipitor, and Protonix(GERD).  He is now beginning to complain about "heavy legs" and leg cramps.  What is going on?  Who should he be consulting?  We don't have much confidence in his internist, but his neurologist and orthopedic surgeon are good.  No one seems to understand the origin of his previous clotting problems based on blood and other tests done to date.  What are possible causes of this heavy leg feeling, should we be concerned, and who shall we consult?  The TIA was very scary and involved memory loss....don't want to risk that again.
