    Thank you for the question.

    If you are concerned for a clot within your deep vein then I would certainly go to the Emergency Room. A clot will classically present as a red, hot and swollen calf that is tender to the touch.

    If your pain is limited only to the foot, then I would see a Podiatrist as soon as you can to get a full vascular evaluation. Try to monitor if your pain is when walking, standing or when the leg is elevated. This will help the Podiatrist during the examination. Best of luck!
