Is an intermittent, throbbing pain in the inner thigh with history of pulmonary embolism indicative of a blood clot?
INR testing and color Doppler study.
As you have history of pulmonary embolism, this should be taken seriously. I will suggest color Doppler study of blood vessel as there may be a clot. If clot found, that has to be treated .
Do not massage the affected area as clot may break to give emboli. Instead of PT you should undergo INR for follow-up and it should be between 2 to 3.
Hope I have answered your query.
