Thanks for the question. I would say that whenever, there is clot formation or DVT in the leg, few important symptoms are such as pain, swelling, discoloration, increase in size of leg due to swelling, numbness or tingling sensations & others like that. There can be only one or few symptoms in the start. I will highly advise that the symptoms which you are having should be evaluated in ER a the earlisest in order to investigate few important possibilities such as clot formation or DVT, lower disc disease with nerve compression, blood flow obstruction & others like that. Blood clot formation should be rule out without any delay with the help of examination & some tests which should include doppler scan of leg, complete blood count, x-ray lower back. Let me know if you have any further question. Best wishes.
