Search this site!: Depends upon what you need to know/do regarding blood clots. Artery or vein blocked? Treatment or prevention? Risk factors? Family history? There's a "find a doctor" function somewhere on this website - https://www.Healthtap.Com/#member/doctors/find_a_doctor/name/oklahoma city. Start w/family doctors & general internists. If that doesn't help, ask for referral to hematologist.

Clot pain: Hi ege1. Yes! you can feel a blood clot. What you may feel depends on where clot is. For example, a leg clot (deep vein thrombosis) can cause leg pain, swelling, redness. A brain clot (stroke) can cause weakness, slurred speech, loss of vision. A heart clot (heart attack) causes chest pain, and jaw or arm numbness. A lung clot (pulmonary embolism) can cause difficulty breathing and chest pain.
