User :   Hi im 19 yrs old, 5'6, and weight 132 lbs. I been having this warm and weak sensation in my left arm for a few months now and i saw today the symptoms of a Blood Clot and it look similar to what i feel. I mean i dont think i have a lot of chance of getting blood clot cause of my age. I used to play sports few years back in high school. I been also getting this warm sensation on my left chest close to the heart. I has anxiety and last year i went to the doctor thinking i was having a heart attack. They did a stress test and EKG and everything was fine. Im super scared of having a stroke at my age. One of my friend had one 3 years ago im scared it could happen to me.
