Brief Answer:
Not a sign of Blood clot.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

Propably your symptoms may be related to a neurological disturbance in the Lumbar spine.

A detailed clinical examination and an MRI scan of the Lumbar spine will diagnose the problem.

Your symptoms are very unlikely due to a blood clot.

The signs and symptoms that occur in the leg affected by the deep vein clot include:

- Swelling of the leg or along a vein in the leg
- Pain or tenderness in the leg, which you may feel only when standing or walking
- Increased warmth in the area of the leg that's swollen or painful
- Red or discolored skin on the leg

Hope I have addressed your query. Happy to help further

Brief Answer:
You need a thorough Clinical Examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, Nice to hear from you.

Bayer 81mg (low dose aspirin) is a pain reliever. It has got nothing to do with your symtoms (assuming that you have no pain in your legs).

There is no role for self care measures without the condition being diagnosed. I suggest you to consult your family physician for an evaluation and treatment.

Hope I have justified your query.
