For several days I've had a dull pulling feeling in


Q: For several days I've had a dull pulling feeling in the area behind my knee. It doesn't hurt, just feels weird — a vague feeling of weakness or aching, or like someone put a cork in my leg(???). Nothing significant. During this time my foot and leg have felt various "twitch" feelings almost like a vein is pulsating. I'm young (28), not on birth control, no family history of clots, and I work out twice a week (though I may spend a few hours at a time sitting the rest of the time, getting up to eat lunch a nd use the restroom and all that.) Is there anything else that could cause this sensation? I'm trying not to panic, but I don't have insurance and am not sure what to make of it :(
