Hi Anonymous,

I'm so sorry to hear that you get recurring blood clots. Are you on anticoagulant therapy?

Absolutely go to the doctor if you are feeling pain on your leg.

Other symptoms of a clot include:
Red areas on the leg
Swelling in one area or on one leg
Pain or tenderness in one leg
Temperature differences between the two legs (a leg with a clot may be warmer to the touch)

Please keep us updated,
