BEWARE, they can be fatal for your life! Warning signs of a blood clot or thrombosis that you should always watch out for
Written by SOT.COM.AL 12 Gusht 2022
A blood clot, commonly known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), is a serious condition that can be life-threatening.
It's important to be aware of the symptoms so you can make sure you detect a potential blood clot as soon as possible. It is often easy to treat if caught early enough, with a number of medicines available. With that in mind, there are four telltale signs to look out for, especially in the feet. Other symptoms may warn that your DVT has progressed, which will require immediate medical attention, the Echo reports.
According to NHS Inform Scotland, symptoms can include the following.
Symptoms of a blood clot include a throbbing pain or cramping. Leg pain or discomfort may feel like a pulled muscle, tightness, or general pain. The affected area where the blood clot is may also feel warm to the touch.
When a clot slows or stops blood flow, it can collect in the vessel and cause it to swell. NHS Inform says the condition “usually occurs in a deep vein in the leg, a larger vein that runs through the calf and thigh muscles. It can also occur in the pelvis or abdomen. "It can cause pain and swelling in the legs and can lead to complications such as pulmonary embolism."
Change in skin color
A person's leg, or the affected area, may begin to take on a red or blue tint. There have also been cases where a person's skin emits a bleached white tone warning that something is wrong.
Problems with breathing
As a clot leaves the legs and begins to move to the lungs, patients may have difficulty breathing and a bad cough. This can warn of pulmonary embolism, a condition that will develop in about one in 10 people with DVT.
