Since vascular: Issues are serious, I would rule one out with a venous duplex. Are you a smoker? Obese? On birth control? (I do not know if you are male or female)......-any of the three above would make you more at risk for a possible clot and a venous duplex is a simple rapid way of ruling out a serious problem.
