7 Silent Blood Clot Symptoms You Need To Watch For

A blood clot is a gelatinous clump formed when liquid blood thickens. Some blood clots can be life-threatening and under no condition should they be left untreated. In today’s video, we will be discussing 7 silent symptoms of blood clots that often go undetected.

Can your discoloured skin, persistent back pain, and leg cramps hold any connection with blood clots? Should you worry if you start sweating excessively? What about warm skin? We’re talking all that AND more...


Discolored Skin

Have you been seeing some discolored skin lately? It could be a sign of an underlying condition like blood clotting. Blood clots normally form when you are physically hurt and your body needs to stop the blood flow. However, experts say that sometimes they are formed in veins and arteries without any obvious sign of injury. Cramps in legs

Leg cramps are episodes of sudden uncomfortable pain in the leg muscles. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms in the leg or arm, but it mostly happens in lower limbs] i.e. leg and thigh. Warm skin
Is your skin at a higher temperature than usual? It’s cool outside, but still, you feel your skin is too warm. There could be several other reasons for this, but a blood clot is often among the top contenders. Back pain
Back pain is one of the most common complaints people have. Pick up a heavy bag, there goes your back! Try a new yoga pose without supervision, there goes your back! But people often don’t realize that this could be a sign of a blood clot. Swelling
Swelling is another common symptom of a blood clot. This can happen in different body parts depending on the location. The most common sites of blood clot generated-swelling are your arms, hands, ankles, and legs. Shortness of breath
Shortness of breath is the primary symptom of pulmonary embolism. This is mainly caused by the clot that traveled via the bloodstream and got stuck in the blood vessels of the lung. Along with shortness of breath, you will experience chest pain and a rapid pulse. It will get to the point where you may cough up blood and observe a sudden drop in blood pressure. Excessive sweating
Excessive sweating is another symptom that must not be ignored. Yes, some people sweat more than others and it is normal. But if you develop this for no apparent reason, it could be a sign of an underlying condition like blood clots.
