Patient : My mother has suffered from pain in one leg for the past year or so, we also noticeed slight redness on this leg. She has degenerative discs in her back and her doctor told her the pain in her leg is probably due to nerve damage from her back. Recently she noticed she is having trouble catching her breath. Could this possibly be deep vein thrombosis?
