  • try and flex your foot if you cant do it because it hurts so bad it could be a possible blood clot

  • My blood clots always started in my ankles and it felt like a horrible sprain.... if its in the front of your leg i wouldnt be so worried as if it was in the back of your leg.... i have them in both legs and the clots run up the back of my legs!!! But it honastly wouldnt hurt to go and get it checked out cause it isnt anything to mess with its very scary!!! Iv delt with it with my last 2 pregnancies!!

  • If I were you, I would makae sure that he is there by passing by around the time that his shift ends. I once went to a bar, (at 1am) after my BF told me that he was going there. I observed him, then when it was safe, I approached him. He should also give you his new work schedule.
