Could it be a clot?

I've written on here before about certain symptoms I've been having and the docs can't find an aswer for, however, there are certain symptoms, I've been experiencing that really give me cause for concern. For the past three weeks, I've had this pain in my left jaw; it starts in my gums and into my teeth. It's mostly in the upper jaw line. Now this pain coincides with the pain that I kept experiencing on my left side, mainly in my left leg and arm. The pain is dull and squeezing. It's so bad in my arm that sometimes, it hurts to lift my arm and I lose feelin in my pinky finger.I put a shirt on today and the left sleeve where the pain is was tighter than the other one; I've worn this shirt countless times and it was never like that before! The pain in my leg is worse and today, I discovered some discoloration in my calf, just below the knee; it's bluish and sore. No swelling though, but as with my arm, the feelin in my pinky toe is lessened and I had foot cramps! I also felt my leg and it didn't feel warm at all! I am about to call my doctor, but I am scared crapless. This has been going on for a while, but it wasn't until I saw the discoloration that I really began to worry. I think it's a clot, but the hard part is convincing my doc to have to tested for one!
