Deep Vein Thrombosis
Signs, Symptoms, and Treatments.
What Is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)?
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a serious medical condition occurring when a blood clot forms in a deep vein within your body. Typically, DVT occurs from blood clots that form within the lower leg or thigh as a result of chronic venous insufficiency or vein disease. DVT is a serious condition due to the risk of the blood clot loosening and moving up to the brain or lungs. This can cause sudden death or a pulmonary embolism. But there is hope. Celebrities like Regis Philbin, Serena Williams, and NASCAR champion Brian Vickers all suffered from DVT.
Common Symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis.

— Cramping (pain that usually begins in the calf muscle)
— Severe pain in the foot and ankle
— Skin warmer to the touch that surrounding areas
— Uneven swelling of the foot, ankle, or leg (usually on one side)
— Worsening pain after standing or sitting for long periods
Recognizing Deep Vein Thrombosis.
DVT is an advanced form of vein disease. During the early stages, symptoms can range from slight discomfort and swelling to sharp pain. Ignoring the early stages of vein disease only increases your risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.
