Worse with movement: I am not quite clear on your question, but if you are asking about pain after a blood clot, and worse with or without movement, pain is usually increased w/ movement. If you are worried about having a blood clot, you should go to the er, especially since you mentioned "breathless" in your conditions and this could represent a complication of a blood clot, a pulmonary embolism which can be fatal.
