I think I may be suffering DVT complications—what should I do?
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition where blood clots gather in the legs. People with DVT can often experience deep pain in their calf, thigh, and pelvic area. DVT is a serious condition that could prove fatal if a blood clot travels from the legs to the lungs (causing pulmonary embolism, or PE), to the heart (causing a heart attack), or to the brain (causing a stroke). If you are experiencing pain deep in your leg and are concerned that you may be suffering from deep vein thrombosis, call Emergis ER immediately.
