I've been taking birth control for about four years now, and in the past few months I've noticed that the muscle in my right leg has begun to twitch. It's not often, maybe once every 1-2 weeks or so, but occurs during the day and night, usually in my thigh. It's very uncomfortable and usually lasts for over twenty minutes, sporadically. This never happened before a few months ago, and I know that my birth control gives me an increased risk of blood clots, but I run and work out 4-5 times a week and walk to most of my classes. Could this twitching be a possible symptom of a blood clot?
