Conrad Murray claims he was rushed to hospital this week following concerns for his health.
The physician is currently serving a four-year sentence at the Los Angeles County Jail after being convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson. In a recording of a phone call between Murray and a friend obtained by TMZ, he apparently voices his fears he has blood clots in his legs.
"It progressed until the leg felt numb... it was painful all to the top of my foot... around the medial aspect of my ankle and all the way to the mid-calf," he allegedly said during the call. "Blood clots are relatively risky... especially if they propagate from the legs into the lungs to cause pulmonary embolism which can result in permanent disability or even death."
During the conversation Murray reportedly reveals he was taken to USC Medical Center this week.
However, after he was examined medical staff decided there was no evidence of blood clots and he was returned to his cell.
He claims he is in constant pain and his living conditions are exacerbating the symptoms.
"I have had to lie in bed for most of the day because there is no way to elevate my feet. One of the recommendations by the doctor is to keep my legs elevated and to increase my activity which is impossible in a 5x7 cell," he apparently added. "I don't want to be permanently hurt by any condition in here... because if I am, I will not let it rest."
Murray also claims to be suffering pain in his right shoulder.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Murray was worried he would die in jail.
The physician's skin, nails and hair are all said to be declining and he has been complaining about terrible headaches.here to win an iPhone5!
