From time to time, we all don’t feel well. Usually the cause is obvious; the flu, lack of sleep, late night pizza, or maybe overdoing it at the gym. The occasional ache, pain or sore throat is normal and a part of life. However, there are some signs and symptoms that you should not ignore. Here are 7 symptoms that may be a sign of serious trouble.

1. Leg Pain with Swelling

If your calf is swollen, tender in one location, red or warm to the touch you may have deep vein thrombosis or DVT. DVT is a blood clot that forms in a deep vein in the body and most often occurs in the lower leg. See a doctor right away; if it is a clot it can break free and travel through your veins up to your lungs and cut off your oxygen supply.
