How do u know u have a blood clot in ur leg?

The Cheat
I'd be interested to know why you're concerned that you may have one. The previous posters have offered accurate descriptions of the signs/symptoms of such clots, but only clots in 'deep veins' are dangerous. Clots in superficial (shallow) veins are not dangerous. If you have 'varicose veins' and this is your only reason for asking, then you shouldn't be too concerned about life-threatening blood clots.
However, as previous posters have said, the safest thing would be to see a physician. Only he/she can give you an accurate response.

You will usually have pain and swelling and maybe redness at the site of the clot. On the leg that hurts, raise your foot at the toes up and see if the pain is worse. If it is, this could be a sign you have a clot. A doctor told me this once. See your doctor and have a ultrasound done to see if you do have one. Good luck.

Pain, redness, and hot to the touch. Also a postive Homan's sign...bend the foot forward and if you have one, it will hurt a lot in the calf of your leg. Young active people can get this too so go to the doctor asap to get checked.

if your leg swells up more then the other if you sit or stand a lot, if you are walking or running and it just really hurt or it swells, if it become hard to move you knee because of the swelling, if when it swells and you walk it dose not reduce and you get short of breath. If you think you have one you should really get it checked out my leg will never be the same

you won't know, you will experience pain and hard time moving your leg, u must see a doctor and you will need a ultrasound.

I agree with the answer above mine and if you think you might have one; you may not have time to wait for answers it's best to go to doctor asap!!!! I HAD A FRIEND DIE FROM A BLOOD CLOT.

when I got one I had a hard sore bump just above my ankle on the back of my leg. the actual clot was just below my knee. i forget the actual reason the bump was low and the clot high but it had something to do with the blood flow. if you think you have one don't wait, go to the doctor and get an ultrasound - it is a serious thing

You have pain and swelling. Google blood clot symptoms. They will perform a vascular ultrasound of your leg.
