more on the leg problem!

I forgot to say, the doctor checked my husbands pulse in his left and right groin and said they were both good and strong. He is medically managed (AD type B) and is still well controlled regards his BP. I just feel so scared for him

Leg pain

Went to see the doctor last night, and he thinks the pain at the top of the right leg could be related to my husbands AD. He said he will contact his Consultant, but obviously now my hubby is thinking really bad stuff about his leg....poor circulation/risk of losing his leg......we tried to go for a short walk today, but once again 200 yards and he was in so much pain. Other than this, my husband feels quite well, he is sleeping better and has a good appetite. Everything is OK when he is…

Hip/Leg pain

Hi everyone.

My hubby had AD type B ten weeks ago. He is managing his BP very well and resting a lot. We are both trying to be very positive and just plod through each day. Yesterday we went for a walk, and during this he complained of hip/thigh (his right one) aching a lot, so we came home quick. Is it usual? His BP when we got home was 113/58, so that seemed OK.
