9 warning signs and symptoms of dangerous blood clots

Blood clots that don't dissolve properly can lead to blockages in arteries or veins, causing serious conditions like heart attack, stroke, or embolism.

Symptoms and conditions mentioned include:

Walking cramps (Claudication) with poor blood circulation in legs/arms.

Sharp chest pain (Pulmonary Embolism) with breathing difficulty due to a lung embolism.

One-sided numbness (Ischaemic Stroke) causing stroke-like symptoms due to brain blood clot.

Basketball belly (Hepatic Vein Thrombosis) causing liver drainage blockage.

Arm pain (Coronary Thrombosis) causing heart attack symptoms.

Loss of vision (Retinal Vein Occlusion) due to clot in eye veins.

Irregular heartbeat (Atrial Fibrillation) leading to clot formation.

Swollen feet (Edema) indicating poor circulation.

Varicose veins as a sign of poor circulation and clot risk.

Preventive measures include regular movement, proper diet, specific supplements, quitting smoking, and controlling blood pressure.
