If you suspect you might have a blood clot, you should make an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible.
You have a good grasp of the primary symptoms of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), but just because you don't have the redness and heat doesn't mean it's not a DVT. Of course, pain in one calf muscle doesn't necessarily mean you DO have a DVT, either.
Generally, DVT is first assessed using a non-invasive ultrasound test. This imaging test will give your doctor a good look at your veins to see if one of them may be blocked or partially blocked.
If you do have a blood clot in your leg, your doctor may treat it with medications.
