Is it bad to smoke weed with blood clots?

Is it bad to smoke weed with blood clots?

No relationship: I don't know of any relationship between cannabis intoxication and exacerbation of a hypercoagulable state (blood clots). The only risk of cardiovascular events of chronic use of cannabis may be in older people with coronary vascular or cerebrovascular disease, in which plaque rupture and superimposed clot formation may result from an increase in circulating cathecholamines when smoking marijuana. ...Read more

How does a blood clot look? And if I smoke weed 48 hours after removal is that okay? Can I smoke and just avoid the sucking motion?

How does a blood clot look? And if I smoke weed 48 hours after removal is that okay? Can I smoke and just avoid the sucking motion?

Silly: First of all the need for a blood clot is rare. If it is a DVT then it is not removed. If it is somewhere else there may be an indication. If you are using marijuana for pain control after removal I think you are asking for problems. As for smoking but not sucking that is not going to happen. You are only fooling yourself. ...Read more

I recently started riding my bike. I have pain in the back of both my calves. I also take birth control and smoke weed. Blood clot or not? No swelling

Probably exercise: Since you are on birth control, it makes sense to see your doctor to rule out any clotting and relieve your, worry. However, riding a bike would certainly strain your calves and lead to muscle soreness initially. It should go away as your legs get used to it. Still,. Get checked out! ...Read more

I have no to low tolerance to nicotine but I smoked a whole pack could the vasoconstricion give me a blood clot.

I have no to low tolerance to nicotine but I smoked a whole pack could the vasoconstricion give me a blood clot.

Not necessarily: Unless you have a vascular problem (phlebitis, etc.) this should not be a concern. What is of concern is your smoking in the first place. Since you are 20 years old, you should stop before your smoking becomes too difficult to control. There are many cessation programs online as well as patches, etc. Good Luck ...Read more

How long before you can get a blood clot from birth control if you smoke?

How long before you can get a blood clot from birth control if you smoke?

Blood clots & cigs: It depends on the form of birth control you are using, but if you have taken 'the pill' for more than a year without a problem you have made it through the most dangerous time. Given that you are close to 40 though, smoking and birth control pills are a bad combination. Please consider stopping smoking (you'll look younger longer if you do and won't have any of a huge list of medical problems). ...Read more

I have blood clots in my lungs they small but is it safe to smoke a little?

I have blood clots in my lungs they small but is it safe to smoke a little?

Smoke a little: It is never safe to smoke even "a little." That raises the probability of illness for all of us. Having blood clots only increases the risk. I respect the fact that it can be a struggle to become completely smoke free. Please contact your local hospital, doctor, cancer society or psychologist for support as you heal and to stay smoke free afterwards. Peace and good health. ...Read more

What are my chances of getting blood clots on birth control? I don't smoke and am still in college.

What are my chances of getting blood clots on birth control?  I don't smoke and am still in college.

Minimal: The baseline rick for a deep vein thrombus (DVT) is about 5 in 10, 000. Birth control pills increase that risk by a factor of 2 or 3 — making the overall risk between 10 and 15 in 10, 000. An individual's risk for a DVT is increased with, among other factors — obesity, cancer, trauma, smoking, inflammatory bowel disease, inherited clotting disorders, prolonged inactivity, surgery, and age. ...Read more

I have a pain in my lower leg which I think may be a blood clot. I don't have any other symptoms. I smoke and take B.C. Do I need to go to the ER?

I have a pain in my lower leg which I think may be a blood clot.  I don't have any other symptoms. I smoke and take B.C. Do I need to go to the ER?

Yes: If there is pain or swelling in the leg, and you have the additional risk factors of being a smoker on oral contraceptives (I must tell you that when I was in practice, I would NOT prescribe these drugs to smokers), you may well have a deep venous thrombosis, which could cause damage and harm on its own, and can travel to the lung as a pulmonary embolus and cause severe problems and even death. ...Read more

I am on birth control pills, am in my twenties, workout regularly and smoke. (I am in the process of quitting) what's the real chance of blood clots?

I am on birth control pills, am in my twenties, workout regularly and smoke. (I am in the process of quitting) what's the real chance of blood clots?

Higher than necesary: And I know I misspelled necessary. I encourage smokers to avoid oral contraceptive use, and vice versa, because of the increased risk for blood clots. Why increase your risk for no good reason? More importantly how do you justify "working out" for fitness then throwing it all away by smoking. ...Read more

What is the chance of ortho tricyclen lo causing a blood clot? Is it rare? Been on it for 3 months but don't know if I want to continue use because I do smoke, is 24 and I work a desk job and don't get a lot of exercise

Oral : Oral birth control pills raise the risk of blood clots. Smoking also raises the risk, as does a sedentary lifestyle. It would also be important to find out if you have a family history of blood clots. Please discuss these risk factors with your doctor.

I'm on birth control and I smoked and my heart felt weird. How common are strokes and blood clots from smoking while on birth control?

I'm on birth control and I smoked and my heart felt weird. How common are strokes and blood clots from smoking while on birth control?

Higher risk!: Nicotine in cigarettes causes high blood pressure and an increased heart rate. These puts added stress on the blood vessels. When a woman is taking the pill, this adds even greater stress to the blood vessels due to the extra estrogen. This combination of taking the pill and smoking can cause heart attacks, blood clots, and strokes. Please stop smoking and go to a clinic for an exam. ...Read more

Should I worry about blood clots? 33yo female, never smoked, on COCs with 25mcg estrogen per pill, 24/4 cycle. Legs become sore when inactive.

Should I worry about blood clots? 33yo female, never smoked, on COCs with 25mcg estrogen per pill, 24/4 cycle. Legs become sore when inactive.

Unlikely: The risk is potentially there for anyone, and slightly more so for women and for BCP users. Do you have a family history of inappropriate blood clots (usually deep vein thrombosis, DVT)? They usually occur in one leg (not both), so pain in both legs would not raise my suspicion. They (DVTs) are easy to test for with an ultrasound study (called a duplex Doppler). You could mention this to your doc. ...Read more

I'm 28, no past hx. Do not smoke, no birth control. Have DVT in calf after car accident. How likely is it to get another blood clot while on lovenox (enoxaparin)?
