Customer Question

I am 69 year old male. After a flight from Rome to the UK a week ago I have developed aches and pains in my left leg. They are worse when sitting and a similar to the sensation experienced when the blood supply is interrupted by pressure on a vein/artery
As it has persisted I wonder if I hev developed a blood clot during the flight?

Welcome to JA and thanks for asking

This can be due to a clot in your veins which can happen after such a flight. I would suggest to see your doctor right now in the ER and rule out possibility of a deep vein thrombosis. Once this is ruled out than other causes like a muscular pain etc should be considered . So see your ER doctor now.

Good luck
