Feeling Pulse in my Leg and Foot

Posts: 284

Since yesterday I have been feeling what I think is my pulse, down my left calf and into my foot. This happened yesterday p.m. while at work sitting at my desk. Then when I woke up this a.m. in bed could feel it and now I can feel it again. It's a sort of pulse but vibration also. Anyone know what might be causing this? I've been under a huge amount of stress lately since losing my dog last weekend.

To play safe I would call the doctor...I can feel mine at times when I am laying down, I did see the doctor, ran tests said all was AOK...But I still think I would call....

Do you have pain in the leg, or is the leg, hot or red?? You have to worry about blood clots....If you have any of those things then I would call ASAP....

Something like that happened to me, where I would feel blood or fluid pulsing in different parts of my body, like my arm, hand, or eye. Sometimes it would go on for a day or two. Sometimes it felt like a pulse, and other times it was at a different speed (faster or more erratic).
