And my mother has that to and very low blood pressure it s 1am right now should I just go back tomorrow? I m also getting pain around my knee and twitches in my foot please respond ASAP thank you

Hello,

Passage of blood clots with leg cramps do not sound normal after history of flight journey. This can be a grave consequence of deep vein thrombosis with embolism episode. You must seek an ER evaluation for the same to prevent secondary effects of the same.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
