Hi everyone. I have a question if that is alright please.
I went to bed with a swollen ankle last night and awoke with it the same. Felt very tight and hot and the pain had traveled up towards my knee. I took myself to hospital where they did blood tests and all came back ok. He said he had done a D-Dimer which came back at 197 (i think he said it could go up to 300-400) so this was ok. Is it normal to not have a scan to check for DVT'S If there is a swollen leg. He said there was no need. I had explained the APS antibodies being present. He said that this time they would put it down to a muscle sprain. I explained that I had not done any exercise recently due to feeling unwell, he then said it could be a result of the start of 'Rheumatoid Arthritis' ? I came out wondering if he was right, but will have to take his word I suppose. It is still swollen and painful. He did not explain about taking anything for the pain either. Confused!
