I want to ask, my mother’s thigh suddenly swelled up and on her lower leg near her calf there was a red bruise.. my mother has been treated for 3 times but it hasn’t healed yet it’s even more difficult to walk, the medicine has also been taking tablets, if I was sick, at that time I fell.. my mother has also had blood control, cholesterol, sugar and others, everything is normal, it’s just my mother’s sugar, what are the symptoms? It’s been a week my mother’s leg has not healed.. is it gout?

1 Answer:


Swelling in the legs can be caused by various causes. From your mother's condition, swelling of the legs accompanied by redness of the calves may be caused by a peripheral artery disease.

Peripheral artery disease often occurs in the leg area, where there is a blockage in the leg blood vessels. This often occurs in people with advanced age, a history of diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and smoking. Blockages in the veins of the legs can cause severe pain, feel sore when walking and improve with rest, and redness and swelling of the legs may appear.

If the condition is not treated, then the blockage can occur completely and cause acute limb ischemia, where there is a total disruption of blood flow to the leg area, causing tissue death in the leg area.

Usually pain in the calf and swelling in the calf is not caused by a gout. Gout usually affects joints such as the toes and swells in those joints.

but apart from that the condition your mother is experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:

deep vein thrombosis/deep vein thrombosis
kidney disorders
heart function disorders

Therefore, it is recommended that you check your mother directly to a heart and blood vessel specialist (SPJP), so that the doctor can check your mother's condition directly. Maybe later additional examinations will be carried out such as blood tests, X-rays, echocardiogram, MRI. In this way, the doctor will be able to provide the right treatment for your mother.
