Is there a definite way you can know if you have a blood clot ?

Is there a definite way you can know if you have a blood clot?
Just curious. Sometimes I get the feeling that I have them I always cross my legs really tightly. Really tightly. I don't know why it sort of feels good. I don't know why, but it just makes me comfortable.Then afterwards it's hard to walk because my legs feel all weird. My veins have become bluer than normal and my track coach says I walk with a limp. Help, please? And also can you develop clots and heart disease at any age?

When you sit and cross legs so tightly, you get some pleasure out of it, probably you get excited and hence you sit like that. When you hold your legs so tight the blood flow stops and the legs do not get blood and you feel numb, you cannot move and your vein become blue etc. So avoid sitting in that posture. It really affects you. Sit comfortably and relax. no tight positions. you will become OK. No blood clot. If any blood clot is present there, then you will not be able to move.

Hi--- I had low voltage on an EKG, and have since had a follow up echocardiogram (results not in yet). I am a 53 year old female, overweight at 192 lbs, 5 6 , but have not had high cholesterol or blood pressure. I have lately been experiencing chest pain and tightness, but am also being treated for anxiety. As heart disease runs in my family I am concerned it could be serious. Will the results from the echo be definitive that nothing is wrong or should I pursue more testing? Thank you!

Hello! I had a hysteroscopy and a polypectomy along with a Mirena Coil fitted under a general anaesthetic on Monday. I was on my period at the time. I had no problems and was discharged to go home that evening. Three questions: 1/ I have some throbbing pain in my thigh, it s not red, hot or swollen. Just intermittent throbbing. I don t believe it s DVT, but could it be related to my procedure? 2/ I am having lots of cramps even though I have more spotting than actual bleeding and its now four days on. I know it can take between 3 - 6 months for the coil to settle down; does this include pain? 3/ My polypectomy wasn t planned and I wasn t advised how long to wait before having intercouse. What is a safe period of time to wait? Many Thanks Vicky

Hi there My Mother is suffering from sensations of freezing liquid in her stomach and also sometimes in her shoulders, back and hands. She has also lost her appetite and has been having a tingling sensation in her left shoulder from time to time. The symptoms make her feel frightened and hopeless. She did recently have suspected DVT as she lost the ability to walk very suddenly recently, but after a cocktail of painkillers and also an injection in the stomach in case there was a blood clot, she was then able to walk again, although she is due for a hip operation in the other leg, so she can walk as best she can. The codeine part of the painkillers caused severe constipation a couple of weeks ago and she had to be treated for that, but now she is suffering these awful freezing sensations. I took her to the doctor and they gave her an ECG which proved fine. Any advice would be a relief as I am worried about her; it has made her very very down.
