Is the feeling of a blood clot in the leg a constant pain?

In brief: Maybe

This, again, is dependent on the location of the clot.
Some people will have a cramping-type pain that worsens when there is pressure placed at the site of the clot. Some people may have intermittent pain at the site.

In brief: On the other hand ..

I agree with dr. Orringer. Usually patients with a DVT have pain, often it is constant.
Typically it is made worse with putting weight on that leg. However, sometimes people with a DVT experience minimal or no pain whatsoever.
