Hi! Im new here and i made this profile to ease my mind because im freaking out a teeeensy tiiiny bit.
So, i play video games for my anxiety but recently ive been in bed a lot because ive had bronchitis. Now, fast forward to today and im sitting here playing R6S right and all the sudden mid fire fight i start getting this pain in the back of my leg, right behind my knee in the back of my leg and a little bit above it.
Now being a health anxiety girl i immediately thought to my biggest fear
OH MY GOSH ITS A BLOOD CLOT.
and now normally im level headed but ive never felt a weird pain like this before but what if its my meds for my BC or what if its my birth control. What if ive finally done it and i gave myself a blood clot from sitting too long. Yesterday i was so active ALL DAY.
so please if anyone can give me some straight and hard facts that will calm my mind that would be great.
Also i lost the game i was playing bc of that panic attack so i wasnt happy
*heres what i am feeling right now!*
-pain has subsided, im not sure if its hot in my room or my legs hot
-im scared to flex my leg (or walk haha)
-no immediate redness or hotness (i think? i mean come on its behind the leg right behind the knee its gonna be warm right?)
-i am SCARED and i really dont want to go to the er at the moment its almost 3 am.
-the past few days i have been stressed and anxious
Facts about me that might factor in a blood clot
-i take sprintec
-i try to be active but as of late i havent been because ive been sick
-ive been slacking on the water sorry
THANKS FOR MAKING IT TO THE END IF YOU HAVE AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCED ILL BE HERE ALL NIGHT
