Have you ever experienced a blood clot?

My leg is killing me, throbbing...I haven't been exercising, in fact, I have been so busy at work I've been LESS active physically. I've heard leg pain can be a symptom for a blood clot, and I can't get a Dr. appt until Monday...Don't wanna go to the E.R. unless I know its serious, so if anyone has had a clot and can describe the symptoms...*WebMD symptom checker gives so many possible reasons it is pretty much useless...

  • Have you experienced any type of injury lately? I had one after my daughter was born and my ankle was sore and swollen. I thought since I had a c-section and they knocked me out. that someone probably grabbed my foot wrong. If you don't have any history of blood clots, that's a good thing. Don't assume the worst, it could probably be something simple.

  • I've been trying to figure out what I might have done to injure it. There is a specific point behind my knee that is more tender than the rest; maybe a tendon or something tore?
