Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

can blood tests tell if you have a blood clot?

D-dimer

Blood_test
Depending on the cutoff level, this point-of-care test can help rule out a dangerous blood clot such as one in the leg or lung.

Had a ultrasound was negative for blood clot and blood test found no clot pain in calve still blood clot?

Not likely

Calf_pain
Never say never, but it is unlikely. The doctor should check for other reasons, like muscle pull, strain, nerve issues.

Is doing an ECG, blood test, chest x-ray, and echocardiogram enough to find a pulmonary blood clot?

These

Echocardiogram
tests can often suggest the diagnosis. The diagnosis can be definite if the echocardiogram shows clot in the proximal pulmonary arteries. CT pulmonary angiogram or nuclear medicine ventilation/perfusion scanning are usually needed to provide a definitive diagnosis.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

Why do my legs feel weaker than my arm? Will a d dimer blood test show a pulmonary embolism or blood clot?

Different issues

Blood
Legs feeling weaker than arms may be just a part of "weakness". Because your legs feel weak is not likely to be associated with blood clots or pulmonary embolism. Please consult your doctor to evaluate the cause of weakness.

Lower left leg&foot pain w/ swelling for the past month. Have had xrays & a blood test for blood clot which neither showed anything. Good circulation.

A test for a blood

Clot would be a venous duplex or ultrasound not a blood test.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

thick blood , high inflammation levels abnormal liver function in all 3 blood tests, test back pos for blood clot on lung after dye test, back neg?

This is serious

Chest-lung
I trust the dye test was a pulmonary angiogram that demonstrated a pulmonary thromboembolus, and it has also been determined that you have hypercoagulable blood. This is a major problem that will require work with your primary care physician and probably long-term medical management -- more than HealthTap can do. Hope you do not smoke. The "inflammation" & liver labs need to be addressed in time.

I have upper arm swelling between my shoulder and elbow. I have had several blood tests, 3 MRI's (brain, throat, cervical spine) and ultrasound of my arm for blood clot, chest x-ray and everything is normal. Any thoughts?

Muscular

Blood_tests
it sounds like a muscle issue. i'm not sure why a brain or throat mri would be done for upper arm problem. if it is painful or affecting your function, i would have it checked out again.

Dr. Amy Levine answered:

Would an EKG, blood test, chest x-ray, and echocardiogram diagnose a blood clot in the lung?

Maybe

Echocardiogram
If the blood test was a "d-dimer" and there were certain specific findings on your X-ray, maybe. The definitive test for a pulmonary embolus (blood clot in lung) is a CT angiogram. However, if you had a negative d-dimer, that makes it extremely unlikely that you have a PE.
