I’m worried about it, I had a baby 3 weeks ago, last night I got a small red mark in my leg but now I’m worried that’s the start 😭

I suffer form DVTs due to a blood clotting disorder that i have. The most obvious symptom is a hot swollen leg and its very tender to the touch, and walking is very painful. If you have any concerns get in touch with your health visitor and she can tell pretty quickly if you’ve just knocked your leg without realising or if its something that needs attention. The treatment is very simple
