Pain Accompanied By Bruises On The Leg And Thigh Area?

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain accompanied by bruises in the leg and thigh area does not always indicate rheumatic disease, or in the medical realm is called rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatism is a type of autoimmune disease that attacks the joints and surrounding tissues. This disease is more commonly characterized by clinical symptoms such as joint pain and stiffness, which can also be accompanied by swelling, redness, warmth, limited movement, and various other clinical symptoms, such as fever and prolonged sweating, weakness, fatigue, easy weight gain and decreased appetite , etc. Although rare, rheumatism sufferers can also experience bruising around inflamed joints.
As for the pain and bruising on the legs and thighs as your mother experienced, besides being rheumatic, it might also arise due to the following conditions:
Post-injury, such as bumping or being crushed by a heavy object Infection in the area of the foot or thigh, for example cellulitis, herpes zoster Osteoarthritis (inflammation of bones, joints, and other tissues that support it) Insect bites or other animals Blood clotting disorders, disorders of blood vessels (eg arterial disease peripheral, deep vein thrombosis) Malignancy in the area of the leg or thigh, etc. Without direct examination, it seems difficult for us to determine the probable cause of your mother's complaint. Our advice, before the condition gets worse, have your mother immediately consult a doctor or a neurologist. A thorough neurological examination can be done by a doctor accompanied by several supporting tests, for example laboratory, x-ray, CT scan, MRI, and so on if needed. If necessary, your mother can also be referred to other specialist doctors for further treatment.
At this time, we urge your mother to live the tips below:
Do not massage or massage the painful legs and thighs and bruises. Compress warm water or ice cubes in the area that is painful and bruised (choose which one is most comfortable for you). Do not carelessly drink or apply any medicine or substance to the feet and thighs that have complaints. rest, raise your legs and thighs during sleep Limit activities that involve excessive leg movements Always use comfortable pants and comfortable footwear, not cramped Don't smoke Hopefully it helps yes ..
