Probably not: Do you have clots in both legs? Are your symptoms in both legs? It would be hard to imagine someone being so unlucky as to get bilateral mp. Generally, mp occurs when there is pressure on or entrapment of a sensory nerve in the upper thigh and would be far closer to the surface of the skin than where you would have a blood clot..
