I have an ache in my calf and pain in my ankle. Could this be dvt? There is no swelling or redness.

Yes. Either achilles pain (strain, tear) or DVT would be most likely. See a specialist for a simple scan that will determine whether a clot is present. Swelling and redness is present only about 50-75% of the time.
Possible. You don't have to have swelling or redness to have a dvt. If you are concerned, see your doctor.
Maybe. Calf pain that radiates down into the ankle could be a DVT but there are certainly muscular, ligamentous, and tendinous problems that can give you the same symptoms. Although swelling and redness certainly don't happen all the time with a dvt, there is probably a reasonable chance this is not a dvt. As dr. Ryan said, though, the only real way to know is to get a scan.

Probably not. There are many causes for leg pain, like muscle aches, strains etc. If there is no swelling and redness and you have been examined and had imaging of your leg with an ultrasound or even a CT and if these are negative for a DVT, then you probably don't need to worry. . Read more...

I have aches in left leg, different places mainly in the front of the lower leg and knee, no swelling and not hot to touch. My mother thinks DVT?

Not likely. It is possible, but the symptoms you describe are not classic for Dvt. If you or your mother are concerned, a simple ultrasound can be done to check for it. Classically a dvt in the leg causes posterior leg pain and swelling, usually not any symptoms in the front of the leg. Again, don't hesitate to be seen. An exam would go a long way in determining the likely cause. Read more...
