In brief: Not debatable...

Whether or not you presently have these symptoms are had them in the past, an obvious concern is a possible blood clot.
This dangerous condition can happen without a clear history of trauma, prolonged inactivity or for that matter, without any apparent reason at all. Regardless of the actual cause, the goal now is to have it evaluated immediately. Untreated, a DVT can have catastrophic effects.
