Horriable anxiety about blood clots, Should I be worried ?

My left calf down the left side of it hurts. Its been hurting since yesterday. I have a strange phobia about blood clots. Ive had it checked before, like a million times. Ive even had a ultra sound on my leg before. It also looks a little pinkish to me. My friend said it kinda looked id leaned up on something and it left a mark. She said it wasnt really red, just a tint of it. Should I be worried?? I hate having this fear of blood clots

Relax, not all claf pain is due to clots..if you are so paranoid about it, then you should be doing a doppler ultrasound test done it will show if there is any clots..In case you are having past history of blot clots, then DO NOT MASSAGE THE CALF AREA WHICH IS PAINING.. as it will dislogde the clot and cause serious complications.
