9 Signs You May Have A Blood Clot In Your Leg

You may not hear much about blood clots, but they are a serious health condition that can even be fatal. Deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body. Blood clots occur when blood thickens and clumps together.

These clots can happen anywhere in the body, but usually occur in the lower leg or thigh.

Blood clots may dissolve on their own, but if they don’t and are left untreated, the clots can detach and travel through your bloodstream to your lungs, blocking blood flow and causing pulmonary embolism.

Protect yourself and know these nine potentially life-threatening warning signs.
