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!

I have been told that I have a hernia on the right side of belly button along with gall stones and DVT and PE. This morning I rolled over on my stomach in bed and in less than 30 seconds I experienced a sharp pain on the right side (love handle area). The pain has subsided considerable this afternoon. Can you possibly explain what might be going on before I head out to the ER.

I m having inner vein pain on each arm, it s been reoccurring pain on and off for years. Four months ago I had severe chest pain, middle left, and since middle right, stabbing pain that is difficult not to shout out in agony- and I definitely have a high pain tolerance. Went to the ER the day AFTER I was up all night in pain, the freq upped to a break every few seconds and grabbing my chest and crying all night- last week same exact thing but in my right leg, after 7 hours of computer work, both hosp visits did their checks- no dvt and nothing in my lungs. I am overweight. I can t think of anything I could have- embarassing history- grandparents were cousins and married each other..genetic defect? mother has acute anemia and something else i can t pronounce that makes her reject blood transfusions and gr-grandfather had hemophelia. Just found out my med history when i found my biological family last yr. plz help!
