Pain in the calf of my right leg making it painful to walk. No swelling or redness, dizziness, or fever. Any ideas?
Most likely not a blood clot issue, but a lumbar spine issue. Get a CAT on the lumbar spine.
Constant pain in my right elbow area but no swelling redness.

Swollen ankle.
How to keep swelling down. What to take for pain.
They are most commonly caused by peripheral arterial disease. To reduce the pain and swelling, first you have to quit smoking, if you do smoke. You should also control your blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
You can take your leg upper on sth rather than lying down. Rest. For pain, you can take painkillers such as ibuprofen. Other treatments need to be applied based on your condition, that is, the real underlying cause of your swelling. Can you provide me with more information? Swelling with pain can happen in arthritis, phlebitis, soft tissue infections, panniculitis, etc.
What is panniculitis?
Panniculitis is a group of conditions that cause painful bumps, or nodules, to form under your skin. Patients may notice painful or tender bumps. They might also have body-wide symptoms, such as fatigue, fever, joint and muscle pain, abdominal pain and weight loss. You doctor may order a biopsy, a blood test, chest X-ray in diagnosis. Medicines are usually used to treat panniculitis, including antibiotics, hydroxychloroquine and steroid drugs. Sometimes the bumps will heal on their own without treatment with enough rest.
I have developed a bump on inside of leg ON RIGHT leg. In 1980 vein was pulled out of that leg. My knee brothers me and is swollen. Could this be a blood clot. I started taking aspirin low dosage daily.
A blood clot in the leg could have various symptoms, including swelling, pain, tenderness, a warm sensation and reddish discoloration. The symptoms depend on the size of the clot. Since you have a bump and your knee's swelling, it's likely to be a blood clot. But diagnosing a blood clot by symptoms alone is difficult. If you think you have one, you'd better call your doctor.
I have bad pain in the back of my left leg! Swelling and warm to the touch !
Do u have any trouble in breathing at the same time? It’s a serious symptom which could be a sign that you have a clot in your lung or your heart.It is suggestted that  u see doctor or go to the emergency room right away because a blood clot can be deadly, and you are not able to know for sure whether you have it until you get checked. It’s better to get the right treatment for your conditions.
You can get a swollen leg with cellulitis too. Anyway in this condition you've got to see a Dr. and get treatment. Not necessarily a blood clot but it needs treatment anyway.
Blood clots are clumps of cells and protein in your blood. They are beneficial when they form in response to an injury or a cut, plugging the injured blood vessel, which stops bleeding. It usually dissolves as you heal. However, if it doesn’t, or if it forms when it’s not needed, it can clog up or completely block a blood vessel, which will result in serious conditions and even death. If it happens in a vein, you can feel pain and swelling.
When an unexpected clot slows or stops the flow of blood, it can build up in the vessel and the symptoms will be:
Swelling. If it happens in your lower leg or calf, it’s often a sign of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Mr. Tate,

Please do not fool around with this. Either go to to emergency room or your family doctor. There is a simple non-invasive test they can do to rule out a blood clot.  I went directly to the hospital and found I had totally blocked off my left artery in the left leg. Please don't mess with this potential major problem.
