What are possible causes for transient sharp stabbing groin pain in a female with no history of DVT or this type of pain.?

44 year-old female with a history of DVT and stroke; on Warfarin daily now with right leg swelling and bilateral leg pain.....?

I would look into "requirement/exclusion" criteria. Good luck. ...Read more

See doctor: Chest pain deserves evaluation. You should have had workup for prior dvt/pte: was it provoked or not, and with recurrent dvt, was thrombophilia checked. Vc filter traps large clots, and small clots can sneak by resulting in pe, subsequent chest pain. See your doctor. ...Read more
