It is possible to be prone to blood clots. You and your doctor can discuss your risk factors. He or she may prescribe a blood thinner or medication that prevents your blood from becoming “sticky.”
Blood clots can cause external symptoms. Depending on the location and severity or your blood clot, you might experience discoloration or swelling. Sometimes it is possible to see the actual clot if it is located in a vein that is close to the surface of the skin.
Is Stroke Related to High Blood Pressure?
Yes, high blood pressure is considered a risk factor for stroke and chronic high blood pressure can actually trigger a stroke. A stroke is similar to a heart attack, but affects the brain, as opposed to the heart. Many of the risk factors are the same and the process is very similar, but blood and oxygen are prevented from reaching the brain during a stroke.
Most medical experts believe that chronic high blood pressure increases a person’s risk for stroke by up to six times. This is because blood pressure creates a condition known as atherosclerosis and causes the large arteries of the body to harden. As the arteries become less pliable and fill with debris, there is an increased risk for blockage, especially if a clot forms.
Two Types of Stroke
People can suffer from one of two types of stroke. Hemorrhagic stroke occurs during the rupture of blood vessels in the brain. Chronic high blood pressure weakens the blood vessels and makes them more likely to swell and burst. When a blood vessel bursts, blood leaks into the brain tissue, which damages the cells. High blood pressure and brain aneurysms are the two most common causes of this type of stroke.
The other type of stroke is an ischemic stroke, which is described above. It is similar to a heart attack and is caused by the blockage of blood vessels that transport blood to the brain. About 80% of all strokes are ischemic. One of the most common causes of this type of stroke is too much plaque in the blood vessels.
