7. PAIN IN THE CALVES
Women who feel pain in their calves should see a doctor because it could be deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. DVT is a blood clot that can occur in the veins deep in the legs. According to WebMD, it affects two million Americans per year and can be critical because the clot could break away and result in a pulmonary embolism. Women are more at risk than men because pregnancy is a risk factor. So are obesity, cancer, immobility and advanced age.
