They did an ultra sound to check for a blood clot but didn't check where the throbbing was?
ever since yesterday morning ive been having a throbbing sensation in my leg. so last night i ended up at the hospital. they did an ultra sound on my leg,. BUT it wasnt where i told them it was. they only did the ultra sound on my inner leg, and the throbbing i am feeling is on the OUTSIDE..
so it came back that i didnt have a blood clot, am just wondering how they could tell since they didnt really look at the spot i was talking about?

*I can actually see my leg moving like blood pumping really hard or different at this certain place in my leg

  • Was this in an emergency room? Could be that they were only looking at the deep vein systems and not the superficial veins. A vascular surgeon could do a vein study to look at both. Do you have a history of blood clots?
