The inside of my left tigh is very red and warm and is tender to the touch. There are no streaks running out from the redness.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question. This can be a very serious condition and it is very important to see your doctor immediately. Here are some of the symptoms of a blood clot.
Symptoms occur in the affected leg when a clot obstructs blood flow and causes inflammation. Symptoms may include the following:
Gradual onset of pain
Warmth to the touch
Worsening leg pain when bending the foot
Leg cramps, especially at night
Bluish or whitish discoloration of skin

Here's a link that can help,
