Get to an ER: Leg discomfort with risk factors for DVT such as prolonged immobility, prothrombotic medications cannot be ignored and ruling out a DVT in order to prevent a pulmonary embolism is a critical and time sensitive matter. Only after that workup is done and negative should one entertain other diagnoses.

Yes, it can be other things...but DVT until proven not!

Get examined: If you are having pain or tenderness in your right calf or swelling of the leg it's best to be examined RIGHT AWAY TO be sure it's not a DVT.
