Nothing: You typically cannot feel a blood clot. What you are looking for is swelling in your arm - your entire arm. Upper extremity blood clots are exceedingly rare. If there is any question, go and see your physician for an ultrasound.

Would not be a clot: Having a dry socket after a dental extraction means that the clot has become dislodged. Just like when you have a cut on your skin and a scab forms, you need to have a clot form over the extraction site. If the clot becomes dislodged, you will have the bone and underlying tissues exposed which causes the pain. Clots normally become dislodged due to rinsing, spitting, smoking, straw drinking.
