OK, so my latest obsession is DVT. awesome.
I'm 24 and otherwise healthy but I am on birth control and occasionally I wear corsets for fashion. I've also taken long flights before.
I get a VERY mild ache on the inner area of my left knee (like where the knee touches my right knee). Sometimes this pain also happens behind the knee, in the calf, or even on my other leg. There are some reticular (visible) veins on both legs, but bulging or grotesque, plus I am quite thin and light skinned so it could just be that. The pain doesn't seem specific to walking or moving- it happens randomly and frequently but it's not constant. I'm not sure if it's DVT, a pinched nerve, or totally in my head. It's such a mild pain (barely could call it pain) that there's a good chance I'm imaginging it- but sometimes it crops up when I'm not even thinking about it.
I don't have the swelling, severe pain or redness associated with DVT. What do you guys think?
Also, is it true that spider veins on the ankle are always caused by something serious? I have some mild spider veins on my ankle but they're unchanging and have been there for years...
