Welcome to the forum! Family history of clots, pacemaker use, obesity, bedrest, recent surgery, history of taking OC pills, cigarette smoking are all risk factors for deep vein thrombosis. There can be many other causes of swelling of legs like chronic venous insufficiency, lymphodema, cellulitis, kidney failure, heart failure and liver failure. One of the severe complications of deep vein thrombosis is pulmonary embolism which can lead to difficulty in breathing, chest pain and even death. If you are anxious and doubtful about your diagnosis discuss your concerns with your doctor. Tests like Doppler ultrasound, venography may be needed. Also get an electrocardiogram, X-ray chest done for your chest pain. If DVT is ruled out do keep other possibilities in mind as mentioned above. Do keep us posted.
