Blood clot?


Q: My leg has felt swollen around the calf ankle and foot and my back has hurt at the base. all of this is on my right side. its been like this for at least 5 months. i went to my doctor and he said it could be my siatic nerve and he proscribed me 600mg of ibuoprofen and some kind of anti depressent. im off those now and the problem hasnt gotten any better. Im worried it could be a blood clot because im a bit lazy but i normally wake up and sit for two hours then clean for about an hour to an hour and a half and then im sitting again. i take bathroom breaks and walk around to get things every so often. the only pain i have in my leg is on the back side of my thigh when i put pressure on it. its in the middle all the way down i believe and the pain in my back shows when i lay on it.
