Symptom #2: Heat

Uncharacteristic warmth in one part of your body, usually the calf may be a symptom of a blood clot. Warmth may be accompanied by a localized tingling feeling or heat. This increased warmth or heat is the result of the increased volume of blood and the inflammation that may occur within the affected vein. The increased warmth usually affects the calf of one leg due to deep vein thrombosis.

Left without treatment, the condition may intensify such that you have pain when using the affected leg. Additional symptoms may also occur including a throbbing feeling and itching. Such blood clot symptoms should not be ignored because they can lead to more serious problems. Seek treatment without delay.
