Probably Not a DVT

Aww thanks for all of the comments and emails!

Ok, I am a freak for jumping to the ED nurse conclusion (med student-itis maybe?)

But that was some CRAZY muscle cramp. 

Leg is 100x better today, almost completely symptom free. I was told to "walk it off" by one of my classmates. 

*And yes, I think Cartoon Characters was right--dehydration makes the most sense. I was really good about hydrating on the plane, it was the 12h after that with moving and unpacking that I dropped the ball.  And yes, it was actually the *worst* pain I have ever felt in my life (not that I have undergone serious trauma but have had my share of sports related injuries to compare it to).

Don't worry. I doubt if the leg will hurt anymore. In a day or two it will just fall off by itself.

Like the sign on my wall says: "Trust me. I'm a doctor."
