DVT what is it exactly?

My boyfriend gets cramps   In his legs all the time, really bad ones...  Quite  a while ago one of his doctor said he had DVT, but he's never been checked up on it again, so can somebody maybe explain or help me understand what it is?  and if it's serious?  and if he needs to go get checked out. Are the leg cramps because of DVT ?

Dvt means deep venous thrombosis- when a blood clot forms in the deep veins of your extremity and it is treated with a blood thinner. The affected extremity becomes swollen painful and red. Cramps that come and go are unlikely to be because of dvt, but he should see his doctor just to be safe
