It depends on the location and severity. I have had two, one in my thigh and one in my calf...The one in my thigh was so bad that my leg turned blue and it was horribly painful to walk or do anything. The calf one (which I actually just discovered last week) made me wake up with what I thought was a charley horse, but the pain never quite went away. Oddly enough, pain was my only symptom. There was no warmth in the area, swelling, or discoloration. The only reason I knew it was a clot was because I had one before. SO, anyway, like someone mentioned before, for calf pain, Homans sign is a pretty good indicator of a clot.
