    If you had a blood clot in your leg you would have symptoms. Pain being one of them. What you most likely have is some swelling due to fluid build up. I am on my feet most of the day and my legs swell from standing and fluid retention. They feel tight, as you said.

    Trying resting with your legs either at chest level, or above, to help fluid move out of your legs. Drinking water with a bit of lemon juice in it also helps as it is a natural diuretic.
