Blood clot?
dsmom141 posted:
Hello. I have been diagnosed for 7 years with lupus and 3 with fibro. I know every ache and pain, after 3 ER visits, I know what chest wall inflammation or severe GERD feels like and that' it's not a heart or lung issue. However, last night I developed a new pain from the highest part of my right leg in the back, down hamstring, through calves, back of foot and down under to middle of foot. I'm trying to finish recovering from bronchitis, so I missed meeting my newborn niece. All alone, I was screaming out in pain. (Fam out of town to see her). I have just been laying around. Should I be worried or just add a new pain to the list?

Pain is usually a sign that something is wrong. You should see your physician if possible. The pain you describe sounds like sciatia back pain (I probably spelled it wrong.) You should have this checked out. Back pain is common after a long bout of lying about when you're sick, such as the flu, but it could be something more serious such as a pinched nerve.

Good luck and I hope you feel better.
