Does blood clot give continuous or intermittent pain?

Through the first few weeks of recovery I had some calf pain that would come and go and I put it down more to inactivity than anything else. It went away, then yesterday afternoon it came back with avengence. Like a burning stinging sensation in right calf. I also get pain on inner right thigh and have a tender place on front of thigh, which I was told was probably nerve damage. This morning it has all gone again.
Anyone else had this or similar leg pains?
Does a clot give continuous strong pain? or can it be intermittent?
How can diagnosis of this type of pain be detected?
Thanks for reading.........................

Hi Dragonflyblue,

Please see your Dr. or go to the emergency room for evaluation ASAP. I don't want to be an alarmist, but if the pain you are experiencing is from a blood clot, the results can be very dangerous if left untreated.

The only way to be properly diagnosed is by a medical professional. Please don't delay.

Let us know how you are and what your Drs. say, ok?

Best wishes and s

got checked out

Thanks - you really shocked me to do something straight away. Was in the doctors surgery within the hour. Dr said the thigh pain was most likely a trapped nerve. He measured and felt over my calf and said did not show signs of a blood clot, most likely a strained muscle, even tho I have not done anything. Said to rest it and come back if any change for worse.

Asked what my consultant had said about it - well that was my post last week, I never had a chance to ask, he was too busy, and had so many other things to ask.

I'll trust his judgement and see...........

Thanks again...What would we do without this site..........

Does blood clot give continuous or intermittent pain?

I was also having leg pain that would come and go and sometimes was worse than other times. I went to the ER and they did an ultrasound and said I was ok. That was not quite 2 weeks ago and I am still having the pains, but now in both legs and sometimes in my arms. I think maybe just from having the surgery and all we have been through. Mine seem to hurt worse when I have been sitting awhile so I either get moving or "pump" my ankles.
Glad to hear you are ok.
Good luck
chele
by the way ER said I had strained a muscle too...I have no idea how???? But I am one of those people that weird things happen to...lol!

Hi Dragonflyblue,

I'm so glad to hear that you saw your Dr. for evaluation and that a blood clot does not seem to be the cause of your pain. As blood clots don't always have the same symptoms, I think that it's really important to be checked to be on the safe side.

The pulled or trapped muscle could be a result of the position you were placed in for surgery .

Anyway, my best wishes for a smooth recovery and s !
