SIGNS YOU MAY HAVE A BLOOD CLOT

1. SWELLING
Just like a kink in a garden hose, a blood clot puts pressure on the vein behind the clot. This pressure can build and push outward, stretching the surrounding tissues. Swelling from blood clots occurs most often in the legs.

2. UNEXPLAINED PAIN
In the chest, pain can feel like a weight resting on your chest rather than an intensely piercing pain. A feeling of pressure or a dull pain that accompanies other symptoms is a sign that you may have a blood clot.

3. SKIN APPEARING BLUE OR PALE
The lack of blood supply from a blood clot is what makes your skin turn pale, then blue as the oxygen leaves the blood.

4. SENSATION OF WARMTH
A feeling of warmth is usually felt in the arms or legs. This may be accompanied by sweating or tenderness in the affected area.

5. LOSS OF FEELING
Tingling or numbness in your legs or arms can be a sign of a blood clot. Since blood is cut off to the region by the clot, the blood is not able to circulate to the area. This is similar to how you feel when your hand falls asleep after you fall asleep with your wrist bent.

6. HEADACHE WITH LOSS OF VISION OR ABILITY TO SPEAK
A blood clot in the brain is called an ischemic stroke. A headache is common enough that you shouldn’t worry about a blood clot if that is your only symptom. But a clot in the brain can cause problems with your eyes and may affect your ability to speak.

7. VOMITING AND DIARRHEA WITH ABDOMINAL PAIN
With symptoms of vomiting, it could be food poisoning or it could be a blood clot in your abdomen. An abdominal blood clot can cause severe pain, unlike the dull pain with other types of clots.
