new symptom! and been busy with bf\'s mom

hmm... i've had this weird pain in the back of my R leg for the last 4 or so days. felt like my leg was heavy. when Matthew, his mom, and i were at the Polynesian Cultural Center (Fri), i kept having to sit down again and again because of the pain. then lastnight as i was cooking lamb roast, it occurred to me to pull my pant leg up and actually look at my leg. there's this big bulging vein all the way down the back of my leg exactly where it's been hurting. i check the other leg in the same area, and nothing is there, no vein visible or bulging. so i show it to my mom (cuz she has vericose veins <sp?>) and ask if that's what it looks like. she said yes. after i shoved the lamb roast in the oven, and then prep the pork ribs for Sun (marinated them), i told everyone i was going up stairs to lay down and elevate my leg cuz it hurts too much. i grabbed a beer with me to drink and figured that may help thin the blood a bit. a little over a 1/2 hr later, i come back down and as soon as i stand on it, it hurts again. last night when i went to bed i iced it on and off for almost an hr. this morning it still hurts and the vein is still bulging. i fugured if it keeps worsening i will go to the ER. other wise, i'm going to urgent care 1st thing Monday.  Matthews mom flew in Monday and is flying back out tonight. she has kept us so busy!!! holy cow! she is so wearing us down with the jammed packed every schedules of showing her the island. gosh i'm so tired already. other than, we got some pics of some of the things and i will post them. yay! oh yes and i did the Olelo recording, it will only air here locally, so if you want a copy just let me know. i'll send out a dvd to you! lol. well God bless everyone and take care!

Whoa, you have been a busy girl.... I bet you\'re glad to put your feet up now that Matthew\'s mum has gone home. Please go to the doctor and get that vein checked out - causing the sort of pain you describe is not a good sign.
Did you work out if you can convert the dvd file to an emailable file?

Take care of the vericose vein! It will just get worse the more you put pressure on it. You probably should give it some support with special socks or an ace bandage or something! Take care xox
