Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing & treating all types of neurological & other medical conditions including the concerns of “Suspected blood clot in the leg” you have mentioned here and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

First I will ask few questions so that I can gather additional information related to your health concerns;

Have you noticed in the affected leg, especially in the calf area, any of the following;

1) Any swelling ?

2) Any raised local temperature?

3) Any discoloration of the skin ?

4) Is there severe tenderness on pressing the calf muscle? (tenderness is pain on pressing a region with fingers?

Overall are your symptoms now improving or worsening?

And also do you have a history of any blood clots in the past?
