Side Effects of Blood Clots
Blood clots form for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, some of these are not healthy and can lead to serious health complications. There are several side effects that can occur as the result of a blood clot. These include:
Deep vein thrombosis occurs when a person develops a blood clot in a deep vein. Typically this occurs in the leg, but that is not always the case. If the clot breaks from its point of origin, it can travel through the veins toward the heart or lungs. If it lodges in a blood vessel near the lungs it results in a pulmonary embolism. This is a serious medical emergency and it can be fatal. One of two responses will occur as the result of a pulmonary embolism. Either the blood supply will be inefficient and the affected area will die or the lung will lose its ability to provide oxygen to the body, causing hypoxia.
Blood clots can also trigger blockage in other parts of the body. If a clot travels to an area where it becomes lodged, it cuts off the supply of blood, oxygen, and nutrients to nearby organs. This can result in a heart attack, stroke, or peripheral vascular disease, which affects the legs.
This describes small clots that form in the upper chambers of the heart. If these clots break free, they can travel to the brain and cause a stroke. It is also possible for this type of clot to travel to the bowel and cause tissue in the intestines to die. It is also possible for a clot to lead to poor circulation in the extremities, affecting toes and fingers.
In addition to the side effects listed above, there are other problems associated with blood clots. These include peptic ulcers, rectal bleeding, urinary tract infections, and vaginal bleeding. Clots can form in any of these instances. In most cases they are not problematic, but if they are large enough to block normal body functions, they can lead to infection. In some cases, clots can also be painful. For instance, if a clot forms in the uterus, it can be painful when it passes through the cervix into the vagina and out of the body.
If you are concerned about blood clots or you have noticed a difference in the way in which your blood clots, speak with your doctor about your concerns. If there is a problem, he or she can recommend medication or lifestyle changes that can reduce your risk for problems associated with clotting.
