Chest pain blood clot

Common Questions and Answers about Chest pain blood clot


Avatar f tn Hello, A pulmonary embolus presents with the sudden onset of chest pain and shortness of breath. The pain is sharp and worsens when taking a deep breath which is often due to involvement of pleuracausing pleuritic chest pain. You are 23 years of age and not constantly immobile due to your profession, hence chances of this chest pain being due to pulmonary embolism are less. However you can consult a physician and get it examined. Pulmonary angiogram is the best test for pulmonary embolism.
Avatar f tn I just woke up around 4:30(it's now 5:06 A.M.) my feet were so tender to walk on.I haven't done anything out of the ordiary either.What can make them feel this way? Should I be worried? If I bend my toes the left foot in between my big toe & the toe beside it feels tender/strained like. I have had tender spots in my legs on my calfs.I have been having pain on my left side right under my breast bone.I told the doctor about the chest pain & he said chest wall pain & that I'm fine.
Avatar n tn I have had several other pains in the last couple months such as chest pain, arm pain, and abdominal pain. I have checked it out at the hospital several times but they never find anything. I had a d-dimer test done to see if I may have a blood clot just a month ago but it was negative. Is the test still good today even though it was taken a month ago?
Avatar n tn I had an CT with contrast recently looking for a pulmonary embolism (for an unexplained fainting incident). The CT PET showed no sign of a pulmonary embolism - past or present. It did show an enlarged right heart. That finding led to an echocardiogram. The echo reported pulmonary pressures of "at least 36" and also described an enlarged right heart and mild tricuspid regurgitation.
Avatar f tn Sudden face and arm or leg pain Sudden hiccups Sudden nausea (feeling sick to your stomach) Sudden tiredness Sudden chest pain Sudden shortness of breath (feeling like you can’t get enough air) Sudden pounding or racing heartbeat and no Dr. will give a MRI to test her for a stroke. We have been to 4 ERs and seen over ten Doctors. She has been on cumadin for about 4 months now. Is there anything we can do to get her help before a stroke sets in.
Avatar n tn Hello, I think you are probably right -- it sounds like you had a blood clot. 80% of the time, blood clots form in the large veins of your lower extremity and if they break free, they migrate to your right heart and lungs. The final destination is usually the lungs. Some people with severe pulmonary emboli can develop pulmonary hypertension and right heart failure. If you aren't having any problems yet and the blood clot was 30 years ago, I would not expect any problems to show up now.
Avatar f tn I have had some pain the right side of my chest,not really short of breath,that comes and goes.the pain has been there since yesterday but not noticable all the time.
Avatar n tn Actually I take 24units of Insulin 70/30 and Glucophage 500mg twice a day. A few days ago I started with minor chest pain. Went to the emergency room, but the EKG did not reveal a heart attack. Came back to the ER 2 days after, and was hospitalized. Echocardiogram and stress tests irrelevant do termine if I had a heart attack in the past or was going to have one. But cardiac catheterization revealed two blockages. I'm scheduled to have them unblock by angioplasty.
1943408 tn?1325586097 and no you cannot tell if its a blood clot with blood work. but i feel 100 percent that its just pain and not a blood clot. i have know to many that has had them and they dont know they do until they end up in hospital with bad problems, as for you its the same and nothing h as happen, so i say your stressing over it making it worse and its nothing. if you read all on net it makes worse to, it makes your mind think you have that than you start to panice so try not to read all of that.
Avatar f tn My heart rate is almost always around 100 to 190. Now I have pain in my legs, chest pain and pressure and arm pain, all on the left side. The pressure moves in the center of my chest if I'm flat on my back, but is on thw left side if I'm turned. My blood pressure is always low. Usually it's a little high, but thw last few months it's been really low. Low befor I had to atart staying in bed. I had a normal echocardiogram. Im worried I have a blood clot or something.
Avatar m tn Is is normal to be able to feel the clot and have pain with some motions? I think the clot may not go dissolve or go away on its own. Are there other ways to get rid of clots. If so, are they risky?
Avatar n tn I would be concerned. IF you had a blood clot in the leg and IF it broke loose and moved to another part of your body, you could be headed for a heart attack or stroke. Those are just "ifs" but with nasty consequences. Can you take aspirin? If so, I'd take one and call your doctor right away. If you don't get answers there and if you're still having these symptoms, it might be good to go over to ER. Chest pressure, blurred vision, arms feeling pressure or heavy - not good.
Avatar n tn told me thats what is was based on the events and circumstances; 6 hour drive, chest pain. Was hospitalized and treated with blood thinners). All pain dissapeared and have felt great; in good shape, lots of exersize, little alcohol, watch caffiene, but experience from frequent PVCs (3/min. average) Echo, stress, ekg, bloodwork all normal. All occur at lower hr, dissapear at faster rate. No other symptoms, just a little worry about them.

Avatar f tn What could it be? I was in the ER last night for chest tightening, pain, and shortness of breath. They did a cat scan and ruled out PE, blot clot on my lungs, and prescribed me an inhaler t i use for when if I get the tightening in my chest anymore. But today I'm woke up and my chest hurts about 3x as much as it did yesterday and it seems like whenever I get the pain to subside, it just comes right back. The pain is mostly on the right side of my chest.
Avatar f tn For about 4 months now I've been having chest pain. It feels like a tightness and sharp pain in the middle and left side of my chest. I also get a racing or slow heart beet and out of breath fast. It hurts off and on throw out the day. It lasts about an hour or two at a time. I have been to the ER twice, they tested me for a blood clot, did ex-rays and an eight. They said they did see nothing wrong and said it was probably brused mucles.

Avatar f tn Hello, This bump can be due to an enlarged blood clot or a hematoma formed. If it is a blood clot then it can be diagnosed by color Doppler as well as an angiogram. Hence it is best to get these tests done. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn I'm having chest pains again!! I'm concerned because I haven't been lifting weights and my chest pain had gone away from May. I've been feeling a bit congested and have been sneezing; maybe I have a cold? I've had sharp pain in the left breast (same spot as the other two times), dull pain in my right breast, some random, dull/light pains in my arms and left thigh, and some achiness in my lower ribs.
Avatar f tn I have been having chest pain since tuesday and i have been to the hospital 4 times with in this week. each doctor say something different. one said gastroesphageal reflux , another said costochonritis , another said carpal tunnel and a pinch nerve in the neck ,and then one said it have something to do with my mucsles and reflux . so my question is what is really going on with me .To me it sound like a stroke , heart attack , or angina .
Avatar n tn About 4 months ago I was making something for my son's preschool class when I got a sharp pain in my left side of my chest. For the next 6 hours I had pain, sweating, trouble breathing and waves of weakness and chills. I went to my primary doc the next day. EKG: normal / Chest xray: normal He sent me for an ctscan: normal, except small nodule on lung. Two weeks later I started to feel the same thing again and I went to the ER.
Avatar n tn An angiogram showed a small blood clot in the lower right ventricle. I don't drink to excess, I don't smoke. I exercised regularly through out the pregnancy. I eat a mostly vegetarian diet. My cholesterol is "normal". I am taking Atenolol and Imdur. I still have angina which lasts for days with just about any exercertion (my cardiologist seems to think this is normal - but I'm frustrated). I am scheduled for a stress test in 3 more weeks.
1318351 tn?1313385021 I do not have insurance right now, when I lost my job my insurance was cancelled, I am going to try and go to the health department on Monday but in the meantime I am worried. Should I go to the ER? Does it sound like a blood clot? Thanks for your help.
Avatar m tn can you tell me if you have upper thigh and hip pain and unexplained chest pains for over 2 weeks is a blood clot possible. and would a blood test for blood count, kidney and liver function remove possibility of a blood clot? thank you.
Avatar f tn If you had a blood clot in your lungs you would be spitting up blood or suffering from excruciating chest pain. The lump in your throat and waking up at night is due to the stress and anxiety your body is going through. If you are still worried I would recommend seeing a therapist so you can develop ways to combat your anxiety.

Avatar n tn The more invasive the surgery, the more bleeding results, and the higher the risk for developing a deadly blood clot. Symptoms can vary depending on where the clot lodges and cuts off the blood supply, so they may not be immediately recognizable. I'm so sorry this happened, but in my opinion, your vet did nothing wrong, and neither did you. I really hope that you'll be able to take in another dog when your grieving period is over.
