Maybe medical professionals can help me.

I am confident that I can feel blood clots in my calves. In really scared and I'm too young to die!!

I can feel dull, mild ache in my calves and it's been consistent for greater than two weeks. I'm a smoker but I've only had two cigarettes in the past 48 hours. I'm trying to quit badly but I'm constantly in an environment with smokers.

If your as worried as I'm perceiving from your post, probably a good time to visit the ER.

I'm not a medical professional but if you suspect that something life threatening is going on, call 911 or get someone to take you to the nearest emergency room. No one on the internet can diagnose or treat you, only tell you to go to the hospital.

You can get aches in your various parts of the body for a variety of reasons.

You could be simply dehydrated.

Go see a doctor.

Even if it's for a life saving procedure, I can't afford to be billed by the hospital. Will they not charge me if my life is in danger?

Better to be alive and owe the hospital then dead and debt free.

Blood clots would stop you typing so relax a little. You're not going to die.

People get the bubbling, twitching thing in calf muscles for lots of different reasons. They can be frequent or come and go randomly. One cause can be from unexpected exercise. For example, have you recently walked uphill or up a lot of stairs and aren't used to it? Coincidentally, unexpected exercise can cause the sensations and it's also one of the best treatments because improved circulation reduces the sensation.

You can use your hands to massage the muscles. Knead and rub them for 3-4 minutes each and they'll diminish...go away.

Main thing is don't worry.

Your calves (lower legs), or your calves (baby cows)?

This makes a big difference when it comes to calling for medical assistance.

Find a local walkin clinic. ER charges $100,000 an hour (ok a slight exaggeration).

If you are scared something is wrong..... see a doctor or go to the ER ASAP.



Period.

I'll do my research about who will take my medicaid plan.

No problem. I get the same thing every so often and they've never amounted to anything. Had them when I was running 30 miles a week and had them when I was being a lazy slob.


Even a doctor said don't worry.

Ahhh yes because socialised health care is evil.....

Basically if you think you have a DVT go to the doc

Is there a red spot? Is it warm? Pain? Swelling? nausea? High blood pressure?

You should probably go to the emergency room if so.
You don't say what you feel that makes you think this.
I smoked for forty years and I quit six and a half years ago. You have to want it.
I also worked around smokers. I just stayed away from the smoking area as much as I could.
I did gain weight but I've gone back to normal weight now. I just wanted to quit. I was having trouble breathing. Anyway...you can check symptoms online but really if you have any of them go see a doctor ASAP. If you don't want to die young you'd better be proactive about this.

Yeah that sounds more like leg cramps than what the web describes for DVT.
Dehydration is the most common cause and many people are dehydrated and don't know the signs.
