The signs are pain and swelling in the calf or thigh muscles, with localized redness and tenderness of the leg-inability to put your heel to the ground when walking is diagnostic.

The danger is that part of the blood clot may break off and be swept off into the lungs where it blocks one of the major blood vessels. This is called pulmonary embolism. The symptoms are shortness of breath, chest pain, coughing up blood, faintness, collapse.
