The formation of blood clots in the deep veins of the body like the veins in the thigh is called deep vein thrombosis. The symptoms of DVT in legs include ankle and feet swelling, cramps and pain in the leg, foot and ankle pain, and the reddish-blue skin over the affected area. Neck and shoulder pain, arm and hand swelling, hand weakness, and arm pain are the symptoms of DVT in the upper extremities. This blood clot can get dislodged and travel to the lungs resulting in pulmonary embolism. The causes of DVT are an injury to the blood vessels, inactivity, and some medications. Your doctor will give you medicines or suggest surgery if needed.
