I am a 25 year old male. I was diagnosed with a DVT in my right let at the age of 19 since then it has went away but left damage in the deep vein causing some minor circulation problems but nothing like it was before. I can now walk freely without pain for long periods of time.
Recently I have a problem in my left leg. About 2 months ago i went into emergency with a very painful lump on the left side of my groin. At first the doctors thought it was a hernia, but later changed their minds and said it was a stone problem and after testing found that it was niether. The lump stayed but the pain went away so i left it alone. A couple days ago i went back into emergency with pain from the same lump but now is efecting my whole left leg. The symptoms are the same as my DVT 6 years before minus the swelling and discoloring. I cannot walk more then 100 feet without having to rest. I feel pain from my inner quad and groin. After resting for a couple minutes I can walk for another 100 feet, but it is a very painful process. I am a Canadian currently living in Taiwan for work, I dont want to blame the doctors here, but i do feel that they are not looking in the right places, for the run constant tests on me, including dopler and MRI and can find nothing. I know myself this is a circulation problem its obvious to me, due to the pain in the leg the pulsating lump and the fact the my leg is constantly cold and tired. I am hoping someone reads this and has a suggestion for me. I am not a doctor but from what I have been reading I would be leaning towards a Femoral Artery Aneurysm, or another DVT although it is very uncommon for it to be in my left leg. If anyone hasd any ideas or suggestions for me I would love it. I feel alone here. Thanks
