The pill + tingling sensation in the leg

Recommended Posts

Last night was the second time i took Dianette (diane 35). I took it just b4 i went to bed. About half an hour after i took it or maybe it was just a coincedence but i experienced this funny feeling like a pulsation feeling in my right leg, it was around my foot around and the side of my pelvis area towards the upper half of my leg area, and shin...this got me pretty scared.

Well this morning the pain has litterally gone although my left knee is hurting abit....has anybody experienced this b4? and did it go away?

bear in mind that b4 i took dianette i'd sometimes get minor pain in my legs

the pill has been known to cause deep vein thrombosis, which is a potentially fatal condition where a blod clot forms in the leg, travels up to the heart and causes a heart attack. If experienced the tingling sensation before the pill, then perhaps you already had symptoms for deep vein thrombosis. In that case, it's an absolutely bad idea to be taking pills, because it is proven that the pills increase the risk for this disease. See your doctor immediately about this. Deep Vein Thrombosis is a very serious condition.

Go to the Doctor ...they'll go through your risk factors again and measure your calves and thighs to check for any swelling.

I have been in the exact same position with pains in my ankle and calves and freaked and went to the hospital...had shin splints from dancing in high heels all night!...phew. And most likely it will be a similar story for you.

Here is wot the doc told me:

DVT - is very painful ...ie:difficult to move normally

causes significant and visible swelling

The vein which gets a clot runs up the BACK of your leg and thigh not the FRONT
