Can blood clot cause fainting?

Even death, yes. If a bloodclot clogs up the vessel in your heart, your brain, and your lungs, it can cause death. Most of the clots from your legs, if proprogated, get caught in your lungs and eventually resolve with appropriate treatment. Small ones often go unoticed. If it is large enough to stop the blood flow/decrease it enough in your lungs, death may occur!

Probably not. Typically, blood clots in the veins are associated with inactivity, not trauma. A DVT usually gives you leg swelling and a "charley horse" feeling deep in the muscle of the calf. The bump on your butt could be a blood clot in the soft tissues (hematoma). The chest pain could be a chest wall contusion (bruise) or even a rib fracture. I suggest you get checked out by your doctor. Read more...
