A calf deep vein thrombophlebitis of calf is a serious medical condition.
The symptoms may be intermittent pain and or less specific .If you have symptoms or concerns you should have that checked. If a clot is present it can break free and travel to your lungs, and cause pulmonary embolus.

In brief: If you have

Deep vein thrombophlebitis of calf, pain is usually constant.
It could be minimal or severe, depending on size and acuity. Sometimes it is difficult even for doctors to make diagnosis without special tests, so you should not try to make this diagnosis on your own. The clot can break free and travel to your lungs, a pulmonary embolus. Go see a doctor now.
