Dr. Lorne Bigley answered:

Can a blood clot in my leg effect my lung circulation?

Yes

Leg
If you have a blood clot in the deep veins of the leg, they can break loose and travel up through the heart, and into the lungs where it can cause a pulmonary embolism. This is potentially life threatening, but the risk is markedly reduced by taking a blood thinner like coumadin.

Blood clot? Sat on feet they went numb so moved about until circulation returned. Now there's liner shaped bruise on foot. Clot? Photos on profile

Probably not

When you sat you squeezed some nerves yemporarily and managed to break some capillaries. If there is swelling or calf pain, get a Doppler study.

I have a swollen pubic area and I'd like to know if it can be from being overweight or is it due to bad circulation that I do have coz of a blood clot?

Overweight

Blood_clots
This is more likely from being overweight than from a blood clot. Pubic/abdomen area is a frequent spot for fat accumulation.

I am 25 years old and have been on Yasmin for about 3 months. I am worried about blood clot risks since i have very bad circulation. Should i change?

Yes

Blood_clot
Yasmin and Yaz have a component that increases the risk of thrombophlebitis and blood clots. With so many other pills available to do the same thing, I would change.

Can methadone cause blood clots and or swelling and pain in leg. Had blood clot a few months ago.. Went away. Years ago told my left side had circulation problems. More lower left leg swollen painful can't move it. must pain right under knee

A

A swollen leg with a history of blood clots is a worrisome combination. You could very well have another clot, and blood clots in the legs can lead to bad complications. You need to be examined for this and have an ultrasound study. Do you have a history of injecting IV drugs into the veins in your legs? That's a great way to damage the veins and put you at risk for leg swelling and/or blood clots.

Dr. Neil J. Halin answered:

Could post thrombotic syndrome increase your risk of another dvt blood clot?

Yes.

Open-uri20140127-12720-1eqmaus
Having one episode of DVT does make you at higher risk to have another DVT. Many people need ongoing anticoagulation for incidences of severe DVT. Consult with your vascular doctor or GP for your individual case.

can an pill to increase appetite in a cancer patient increase risk for blood clot?

Possibly

Mirtazapine
Sometimes we use prednisone. Also some people respond to Marinol but not the greatest. Mirtazapine (Remeron) an antidepressant has side effects that include help with sleeping and improved appetite. Hope this helps. However, as with all medications, there are side effects and there can be drug interactions. So discuss with your doctor.

Dr. Guy Fogel answered:

What would a blood clot feel like in the knee? I have a popliteal cyst by my knee replacement does that increase the chance of one forming

Not a clot

Cyst
Usually the knee pain is more likely related to the popliteal cyst and not a clot Clot usually hurts over the veins below the knee on the posterior surface or above the knee on the anterior surface.
