I am taking apri 28 and i have major pain


Q: I am taking apri 28 and i have major pain in my legs and calves. It is a cramping pain and a sense of numbness in my right leg. I have travelled on a flight for more than 8 hours more than 2x this past 4 months, but I just started taking the pill recently. Are these blood clots? How can I find out? I am going to a doctor in the current country I am in but I am afraid that the medical staff here may not be well acquainted with this problem (I am in a conservative 3rd world country at the moment and plan on being here for 5 more months for leisure travel). How can I find out if I have a blood clot?
