I am an 18 year old healthy female. All day today, I have had sharp pain in one tiny spot on my left hand. There is a tiny red mark that looks like a scratch, but it is not. It is not warm, but the pain is also spreading to my arm. I have also had the same type of pain in both my legs and my foot for a couple weeks now, but no veins or redness are there. I have anxiety which makes me always think the worst. I am scared that I have DVT and that any minute now I am going to drop dead. Please give some suggestions as to what this might be. Could it be something with muscles or nerves? Should I go to a hospital? Any information would help. Thank you.
