Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
I have a history of DVT`s I am also Factor V leiden positive, I am currently experiencing a throbbing pain in my right calf. I take asprins on a daily basis when my medication is in the process of being filled. I am just wondering if this is a possible onset of another blood clot in my leg?
It is possible that you could be having a blood clot, based upon your symptoms and your history. I would advise you to talk to your doctor to have a doppler study of your leg performed to look for any blood clots.
