What Are the Symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis?

Symptoms of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) may depend on its size and location. About half of the people who have DVT do not have any symptoms.

Symptoms of DVT may include:

  • New swelling in one leg or arm
  • Pain or tenderness in leg or arm
  • Redness or discoloration of leg or arm
  • Shortness of breath (with pulmonary embolus, a blood clot that travels to the lung)
  • Warm area on leg or arm
