What are the sign that you have a blood clot in your leg?

A blood clot in the leg is a prerequisite to a pulmonary em bolus.As you wait for a answer consider the following.A pulmonary embolus is fatal upwards of 95%.I would encourage you to seek immediate medical attention(assuming your still alive).

Your big toe turns black and falls off.

You must first have a cut then it clots. Check if there's a cut.

I should know the answer to this. I've had 4 blood clots in the last 4 years. The last one was a partial clot left from last year. I am still recovering from it. The typical signs are swelling, pain, hot or warmness to the touch, & veins popping out and bursting.

Blood clots in your leg, also known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), are caused by problems with your circulation, injury, or a blood problem. Symptoms of a DVT are swelling in the area of the clot (could be in your lower leg or upper leg, that area will be swollen.) if the clot is in your upper leg, the swelling will go down the rest of your leg too. Gradual onset of pain is also a good sign. Sometimes its described as a dull ache, sometimes as a sharp pain. If the clot is in your calf, your calf will be very tender. The area around the clot will be warm to touch (warmer than the rest of your skin) and sometimes reddened. Pain will usually increase when you are bending your foot (doing ankle pumps)
Sometimes, the clot can break free and travel to your lungs causing pulmonary emboli (clot in your lung), which can be deadly.
If you think you may have a clot, then call a dr right away. Normal treatment includes blood thinner (usually Heparin at first, then they wean you onto Coumadin) Once the blood is thin enough to prevent new clots from forming, your body will dissolve the existing clot. Most of the time, they do not remove the clot surgically unless your situation is severe, but each case is different.

so sick of being broke
When your leg aches or throbs and you cant do anything to make it feel better. Check with your doctor.

You may feel a "cord" in your leg. Other signs are swelling, and increased pain with flexion of the foot.

I just had a blood clot in my neck and imagine it isn't much different in the leg. First: It hurts. Feels warm. Swollen.did I say it hurts?

Bobby the WOOD Heenan
Well, typicaly your leg will be sore in the spot localized but the dead giveaway is the swelling. Try to see a doctor about getting an ultrasound of the leg. If it is a DVT (deep vein thrombosis), you want to jump on that as soon as possible


Buzz s
Swelling or pain deep in one leg only that comes on all of a sudden.

Severe pain in the calf, swelling, increased temperature, pain with squeezing the calf or flexing the foot. Fever and increased white blood cell count are also a lesser known symptoms. This should be considered an emergent situation.

You do not have to have a cut to have a clot (otherwise known as a DVT)...it can be brought on by a number of medical conditions especially when combined with prolonged bed rest.
