Blood Clot In Arm After Blood Draw
Have a history of blood clots in arm, leg, and pulmonary embolism. Last night I had a blood draw, today huge hematoma that is painful. Possible clot?
No: A hematoma occurs when blood leaks out of the blood vessel that was punctured. There is a pool of blood in the adjacent tissues and, since blood is irritating, it hurts. Because of your hx, I'm guessing you might be on an anticoagulant ("blood thinner")? If so, it predisposes you to a hematoma. Hematomas hurt but get better on their own. There's no risk of the clot "traveling" anywhere.
Very unlikely: Blood draw from the vein is a safe procedure. You are more at risk in your drive to and from the place you go to get blood drawn than the blood draw itself. In 1-2% of cases there may be a bruise at the site that usually resolves on its own. Blood clot formation, if it occurs is very rare. I have not known even one instance in 40 years.
My left arm into my neck has been hurting, like sore muscle but I have done nothing to cause it. I did have blood drawn 3 days ago. Blood clot?
I am 34 weeks pregnant, had blood drawn, nurse left the rubber band tied tight around my arm for the whole blood draw. Could it cause a blood clot?
No: What you describe sounds normal.Get a more detailed answer ›
I just had blood drawn 4 days ago. (enzymes ok) now my right interior elbow is sore & swollen. Lymph nodes or blood clot?
Can a blood pressure cuff inflated to 200mm Hg Pressure (max) and then slowly released, cause blood clot in arm?
Unlikely: What you described is not likely to cause a blood clot.
Had to go to e.r with extreme arm pain, given doplar to check for blood clot in arm. Would the blood test they did have tested for clots all over?
Well Kind of....: The blood samples were taken to run a series of tests known as coagulation studies. The results would show if there are any blood clotting abnormalities that may be contributing to your condition.
A blood clot in arm/chest or leg would I be able to feel it & would that mean if it reaches my heart/lungs/brain I die or can it dissolve alone?
Well: Blood clot's are always serious. Cannot diagnosis by chat. Consult primary care doctorface-to-face promptly or go to emergency room if you're having symptoms now for diagnosis and treatment
Superficial blood clot in arm. Sudden severe blurred vision in left eye with dizziness nearly passing out. Connection? Back to ER?
Emergency Room: Whether or not it is related, with any acute sudden change (in this case, your vision in the left eye), you belong in the ER to get it evaluated. You never relayed the cause of the superficial blood clot, nor underlying medical problems, so it is hard to say if it is related; but if the vision suddenly went blurry, get to the ER to get a diagnosis! Don't lose your vision waiting for an online deba
Many things.: Assuming you mean in the veins not the arteries. Blood clots in the arm arm divided into deep (more serious) and superficial. Deep vein thrombosis of the arm is most commonly seen in hospitalized patients that have certain kinds of long iv's in called picc lines. In a young person I often treat clot in the subclavian/axillary veins from "venous tos". It can be caused by repetative motion injury.
Common: You probably mean fistula. For hemodialysis? Blood clots are common and can be removed with a balloon catheter, by a trained interventional doc. Usually no obvious reason but anatomy, blood flow and hypercoagulability testing are checked. Usually all tests normal. Certainly you want to discuss your specific case with your doc.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound of the blood vessels.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Swelling painful, and sometimes, a palpable cord. If any suspicion...See your doctor asap.
See a doctor: I recommend seeing a doctor so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.
Is it possible to have a blood clot in my arm after having an iv? If so what are symptoms? How is it diagnosed? Thanks.
Yes: You would feel a cord like hardening on the course of the vein where IV was can be warm, tender and some redness could be present.
Yep: Of course.Get a more detailed answer ›
