Throbbing Pain From Hip to Toes

I am 43 years old. Im 6 feet tall and weigh 220 lbs. For the last 3 days I have been experiencing pulsating pain down both my legs. With each heart beat, the pain is unbearable. The pain is also eqaul in both legs at the same time. Often it gets so bad that I cant stand. Coloration hasnt changed in my legs. Also my legs feel cold all the time. My wife thinks this may have something to do with my falling on ice 5 days ago. I have a history of clots in my legs and once in my right lung. I also have sarcoidosis in both lungs and spleen. Can you help me figure this out?

You may have just pinched a nerve, or put your back out when you fell. But since you have pre-existing health conditions, I would definately go to the doctor. Just to be safe. Hope you feel better.

If you haven't seen a dr & still have this problem tell your wife to shove you into the snow to try & wake you up - go to the dr now, go directly to the dr - do not pass go & do not collect $200!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Arrow
