Severe pain top of foot.......blood clot?
bowman1951 posted:
I was awakened last night by a deep burning pain in my foot right in front of the ankle bone on the left side. I thought it might be a charley horse but have never had one there. I t was extremely painful and I was awake for an hour trying to massage it out or walk it out. This morning the area is very tender to the touch. I'm just wondering if it could have been a blood clot. It was not red or hot to the touch at the time. I am on a diuretic and hormone pills.

This can't not be truly determined via the Internet (which has serious limitations/restrictions).
