Does blood clot pain in the leg come and go or is it a constant pain?

Thanks for your query.

The pain due to obstruction of the blood vessel by a clot will be continuous due to continuous damage to the limb involved.

The lack of blood supply due to the obstruction is continuous and so the damage until the block gets reversed by dislodgement of the clot.

Do get an Doppler scan done which can identify such blocks and insufficiency in the blood supply.

Hope I answered your query.

Please do accept my answer with a review if it was satisfying.

Wish you good health.
