Lots of options: There are multiple medical options.

Pain in hamstring with movements, no swelling no bruising, pain started 30 hours after workout but doesn't feel like DOMS. Blood clot?
Exercise related: You worked out. Then you noted pain in hamstrings. This most likely represents sore muscles from the workout. If you are otherwise healthy and 18 years old? I would stretch the area of soreness. You note no pain at rest no swelling... Thus unlikely a blood clot. If you are short of breath, recently on birth control then see doctor immediately as that would be concern for clot. ...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?
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
I started Yasmin birth control today after being off for five months. I am reading stats on the chance of blood clots and have myself worried, I'm young workout and had been on this medication for almost five years before stopping. Is Yasmin safe?
Alternatives: The concern is over the drospirenone (synthetic progesterone) component of the pill. Some studies suggest that Yasmin and Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) may have a higher risk of venous blood clots than older birth control pills. However, there are risks associated with any pill, and the benefits generally outweigh the risks. The decision of which pill to use should be made between you and your doctor. ...Read more
Can I get a blood clot in my neck from a really intense workout? I have a lump in my neck in my corroded artery. Please help!
Can you get blood clots from just sitting for a long time? I'm 21 and I workout regularly but lately I've been sitting for long periods of time and my knees and the bottom of my feet started to hurt.
So to answer your:
Question definately, prolonged sitting is one of the risk factors of getting a clot.
You also state you have knee and foot pain.
There are other reasons you can have knee and foot pain though - do you have flatfeet? If so you can have plantar fascitis and flatfeet also put pressure on the inner knee....So since you mention a clot - that should be ruled out as that is dangerous, other causes too. ...Read more

Symptoms of thrombus: Symptoms are dependent on whether the clot fully blocks blood flow enough to cause symptoms. In some locations though, the "collateral" circulation is sufficient to preclude significant symptoms until some other stress occurs. So smaller clots, only partially occulding clots, or clots in vessels with rich collateral networks may not be symptomatic. ...Read more
Good question: The menstrual flow is actually a mixture of substances, including last month's endometrium, and blood that has already lost the portion that can clot. There actually are tiny blood clots in the fluid and these may re-liquefy or simply not be so apparent as the rest of the flow. ...Read more
Cotton & Ice:
Bite on cotton covering this area, and hold ice (in plastic bag) on the outside of the face next to the extraction socket. Do this for the first 3 hours after the extraction. After that it will continue on its own.

I live in fear of having a blood clot, what can I do to reassure myself? Or make sure it doesn't happen?
CBT: It seems that you understand that blood clots are a real danger but unlikely, that you know generally what the risk is and how to minimize it, and that you recognize these fears to be out of proportion. A short course of cognitive behavioral therapy would probably empower you to rid yourself if you ste willing to put in a little effort. ...Read more

I'm having chest pain but it's painful to the touch. Doesn't seem internal. Could a blood clot cause this pain?
Flowy period. Like just blood. Now it's not much blood, just huge blood clots! I don't think this is normal. What should I do?
Blood clots usually indicate excessive blood loss. One episode may be a normal variation, however, if it recurs, you should consult your gynecologist. You should take oral iron and multivitamin supplements to prevent anemia.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not clear what you mean by "clot". If it is a collection of blood under the skin, it will resolve on its own though it may leave some pigmentation in the skin for some time.

My dad has blood clot in his leg, and he won't take blood thinner, is there any way to fix the blood clot?
Not best approach.: Interventional procedures called thrombolysis can direct clot busting medications at the clot. However, anticoagulation with blood thinners after these procedures is a must. If your family member has concerns about bleeding then they should talk to their physician. Patients who cannot be treated with blood thinners may need to have an ivc filter placed to prevent pulmonary embolism. It does nothing to stop the formation of new clot however. ...Read more

I was on bc for a few years got off no blood clots, going back, should I worry about blood clots since I didn't have any before when I was in it?
Not necessarily: Remember, all birth control that contains estrogen has the ability to cause blood clots. This is a lot less likely if you didn't have an issue before. If you smoke, STOP because once you reach a certain age you cannot take birth control pills while smoking because of the risk of blood clots. ...Read more
