Left side weakness, tingling, got lymph nodes removed. Blood clot in left arm years back. Is clot cause of damage?

In 2011 I had a blood clot in my upper left arm that resulted in an direct hospital admission. I walked around for 10 days before the clot was diagnosed despite me telling doctors something was wrong. My health went downhill since the clot. I have left side weakness & tingling all the time, left side stays sore, & just recently I had to have my lymph nodes removed from my left armpit. I've never had any injury or infection to my arm (one of the questions the surgeon asked). Could the blood clot have cause this much damage to my body?

A blood clot in the arm would normally not cause such problems.

The lymph node enlargement might be due to some other reason and the fact that it has been removed and will be examined under the microscope tells us that there is a good chance of finding out what is the cause of the lymph node enlargement.

If there is tingling and weakness of your left side then you might want to tell this to the Physician who is taking care of you. He/she might suggest brain scans to rule out blood clots.
