Since last evening I have been experiencing mild discomfort and a burning sensation in the back of my lower leg and calf area. I went to the doc because I was concerned that it might be a blood clot since you can get those after having a baby which I did three days ago.
Also the bottom of my foot was tingling. It is making me paranoid and I am worrying that the doc sent me home and never found what is going on with my leg. It looks a little reddened in the area but I haven't noticed swelling. There is no pain when I bend my foot. So, any ideas as to what I am experiencing?
I had an epidural when I was delivering, on Friday Jan 11. I am scared still that it could be a blood clot.
