Swelling of the feet after training

Surgeon-phlebologist-lymphologist, surgeon of the first category

Hello! Recently started to do aerobics, and a week ago I stretched the calf muscles of my right leg, which made it difficult to walk, especially in shoes without heels. 2 days ago, after training, I noticed that my right leg was swollen from the heel to the knee (the foot itself was not swollen, my heart and kidneys did not hurt). After two nights I slept with my legs tucked up, after taking the diuretics. drugs and heparin ointment, the swelling has almost disappeared, but the feeling of compression in the leg is still present. Tell me, with what it can be connected and to which doctor to apply, if swelling will appear again.

There is a sense not postponing to address to the phlebologist anddo a duplex scan of the veins of the lower extremities. Unfortunately, these symptoms may indicate thrombosis of the deep veins of the shin. And this is a dangerous diagnosis.

Sincerely, Elena Belyanina.
