What are the Signs and Symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis?
It is possible to develop deep vein thrombosis and not experience any symptoms. Unfortunately, this means some people have no idea there is a problem until the blood clot begins travels through the body and causes serious health problems. However, there are instances in which symptoms begin as soon as a clot starts to form. It can be helpful to understand your risk of deep vein thrombosis because catching symptoms as early as possible can mean the difference between life and death.
Symptoms range from mild issues that are barely noticeable to those that are severe and in need of immediate medical attention. If you reach the point of having a clot move from its point of origin (usually a leg) to your lung, you will need to visit the hospital immediately. This means you have a pulmonary embolism and it can be life threatening. The signs of pulmonary embolism are easy to spot and include: sudden onset of shortness of breath, fainting, an increased heart rate, chest pain that may worsen with deep breathing and coughing that might trigger congestion with blood.
Prior to the onset of pulmonary embolism, you want to watch for the subtler symptoms associated with deep vein thrombosis. These usually affect a leg and include:
Pain or tenderness
Redness and warm spots on the skin
Keep in mind the symptoms of deep vein thrombosis sometimes mimic those of other issues, so any one or a combination of these symptoms does not guarantee a problem with a blood clot. You will want to report your symptoms to your doctor who can order further testing if you experience anything unusual.
Blood clots are not always risky, but they can be if they are a frequent occurrence or if they dislodge and move throughout the body. There are an unknown number of instances in which people suffer from blood clots without ever realizing it. Clots can develop and disappear without a single symptom. So how do you know if you are at risk for a serious health problem related to deep vein thrombosis?
The way in which your blood normally clots can provide an indication of whether deep vein thrombosis could be a problem. Health issues related to clotting can be hereditary. If your parents or other relatives have experienced clotting disorders, you could be at risk. Certain medications also increase your risk. Speak with your doctor about your family history and other risk factors. It is possible to determine if deep vein thrombosis could be a problem, so you and your doctor can devise a plan to reduce your risk.
