3. Pain When Bending Foot

Some people that do have pain with deep vein thrombosis will feel no pain when relaxed. It is often only when they stand or walk that some will start to feel pain. As mentioned, this is because of the contractions of the muscles and the increased blood pressure in the region.

Another time that people with the condition might feel pain is when they bend their foot. Bending the foot when there is already high pressure in the area can squeeze the area further, causing an increase in pain. People with the condition will often need to stay in a comfortable position without moving to avoid discomfort.
