Horrible sharp pain in leg. Inside of right leg. Comes and goes. Only lasts a few seconds. No other symptoms. Not swollen, not warm. Could it be dvt?

Leg pain: The pain you describe is not typical for dvt, it sounds more like a musculoskeletal symptom. Having said that, one can't be sure what's going on from out here and it would be a safer course to see your dr. And get checked. ...Read more

Could you run when you have a dvt?

Could you run when you have a dvt?

Depends: If the acute phase of the clot has passed and the blood thinners (anticoagulants) are stable and in good control and symptoms have resolved, walking, swimming , and even light running may be ok. However if a clot is recent or the medication is not in good control it is not a good idea. Ask your md about when it is safe to run and perform other exercise.. ...Read more

Can people who suspect they have a dvt walk easily on it for miles or kick a ball for an hour run etc without any pain or increase in pain?

Can people who suspect they have a  dvt walk easily on it for miles or kick a ball for an hour run etc without any pain or increase in pain?

Possibly.: It depends on many factors; where the DVT is, whether or not it's a complete obstruction, how long it's been there, collateral circulation, etc., etc. My question would be, why do they "suspect they have a dvt" if they don't have symptoms? ...Read more

I started jogging a month ago. Deep in my right thigh about in my bottom there is a pain when I shift from side to side. I can walk and run. Dvt?

Most likely not: Most likely is muscular in origin. Your hamstring attaches to your tailbone, this is wear it sounds like your pain is. A DVT usually comes from a calf vein or a groin vein. It is usually associated with leg swelling, feeling of cramping. Risk of DVT is hormones, smoking, immobility, cancer. If you are concerned about DVT, I recommend being seen as soon as possible. ...Read more

Is running bad for recovery from a dvt? Popiteal vein. On warfarin.

Is running bad for recovery from a dvt? Popiteal vein. On warfarin.

Be careful, warfarin: Really, i think the answer has more to do with the warfarin you are on, not the running. I think it is better if you are on anything that can thin your blood (think Coumadin (warfarin), or Lovenox (enoxaparin) (a type of Heparin you can give at home)) you should avoid activities prone to injury, falls during running are one of those activities. Walk fast 30-60 minutes a day and your running will come back. :). ...Read more

I have B/L DVT (prolonged bed rest) since 2001. I want to run a marathon. What precautions should I take before, during and after the run?

See your doctor: Your doctor should review all your testing and check your legs. If you have DVTs right now these could dislodge and go to your lungs. If you have a filter in your inferior vena cava that can prevent most clots from moving. If you are on Warfarin/Coumadin then your levels need checked. Seeing your doctor would be the best advice. ...Read more

DVT Unlikely BUT....: Hi, it is unlikely to get a DVT in a 31 yr old active person but some people do have family histories of blood clots or thick blood which may increase your chances. Most likely it is a gastroc strain since you just started running recently. You need to ease into running. Start with short distances and work your way up. The buttock pain is likely sciatic irritation. Stretch Stretch before running. ...Read more
