Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Month on March, 2017: shin splintsdeep vein thrombosis (dvt) pain?
March, 2017 is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Month 2017. Deep Vein Thrombosis Get Information on a Different Treatment Option for DVT Patients
DVT pain is more likely in the back of the calf, not the front. If you are young and active, a DVT is less likely. If you are older (middle age +), have had a recent surgery, have cancer, smoke, have a history of blood clotting disorders, have just taken a 7+ hour flight or are on oral contraceptives (for females) then a DVT certainly is more of a consideration.
In your case, you've got a physical reason for shin splints (incline running and change in activity in past two weeks) and the pain on the front of the leg is more likely indicative of this. The anterior comportment rarely has DVTs because the compartment is so superificial. Although thrombophlebitis can occur in this area, a DVT in this area is not common.
DVT pain is typically described as "sore" and is usually located in the calf, although about half of people with DVT have no symptoms at all.

deep vein thrombosis, if left alone is like a " person driving on a busy road and blindfolding himself " He can die next second, next day, next month or some times they do not kill for years together.. They are most unpredictable..

Secondly, those who travel in the plane, more than 70 to 80% of us will get deep vein thrombosis, this is called air travellers thrombosis and most of the times they are so small and insignificant and they do not affect.. they get absorbed...
The problem with DVT is, that it as such in its place does not cause any problem.. Once dislodged from its site, it can go and settle in heart or most commonly in lungs causing and pulmonary thrombosis, and if massive can cause an acute right heart failure and death.. When the thrombus gets dislodged, only god knows.. Thats y i told in the beginning, life span is unpredictable in a patient with DVT left untreated..

deep vein thrombosis?
i have had dvts (currently have 3rd) spasms are not an indication of dvt. but swelling,pain, change in circulation(if u have abnormally purpleish looking leg/foot). since you have an anxiety disorder it is quite possible that you have unintentionally developed a conversion disorder. conversion disorder. basically a nicer word for psychogenic. which i have is when you are under a major life change or stress and your body unitentionally develops this sympton that reacts to stress. while those same stresses may no longer exist. you could still experience those symptoms. because it is possible that your brain changed and how you react is now different.
if you still believe it is a blood clot you should see a hematologist to be examined and manage the clot before you have serious consequences. yes it is possible to have a clot for a long time and not know it. i had one that ran from my lower stomach to my knee before it was found.
As for the conversion disorder you should talk to a neuropsychiatrist they are the ones qualified to help you manage the symptoms of conversion disorder and it may never go away but it is not impossible for that to happen.
hope this helps. good luck!
