Probably not: Blood clots usually form in the deep vessels of the leg. They can cause pain behind the knee and they often cause leg and ankle swelling. It sounds like you have a muscle strain, not a blood clot. Birth control pills do increase the risk for blood clots so it is important to stay active and not smoke.

History of a clotting disorder or cancer also contributes to suspicion. ...Read more

If you have a heating pad just wrap it with some sort of cloth or linen so you don't apply the plastic of it directly over the skin. Avoid ointments under. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
