5 signs that you have an Internal Blood Clot

1. Swollen Limbs

The first danger of internal clot is that it can obstruct the blood flow, and organs can swell fatally. The condition is called as “Deep Vein Thrombosis”. It is dangerous because obstruction in the blood flow can prevent nutrients and oxygen from reaching to the organ tissues. So, never ignore if you suspect any unexplained swellings on the limbs.

2. Pain, Numbness or Tenderness

Interrupted blood supply to tissue can generate pain and make the organs numb. It can also cause tissue tenderness. Immediately massage or move the body part you are feeling pain or numbness in.

3. Chest Pain and Heavy Breathing

If the clot is interrupting the blood flow to any vital organ such as brain, heart or lungs, the situation can become critical. The decreased flow of blood and oxygen can send the body signals to obtain more oxygen. Hence, one can start breathing heavily and can get pains in the chest.
Clots in the veins supplying blood to the brain can lead to stroke as well.

4. Unexplained cough

A cough without any cold symptoms can be linked with a blood clot in lungs. Pay attention to your breath, chest and heart rate.
