Many of us take blood clots for granted, thinking these are not harmful to the body or simply because we do not know some have already developed inside us.
Though not really an epidemic, blood clots have killed thousands of people each year. There are as many as 2 million cases of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), the medical term used for massive blood clots; of these cases, as many as 300,000 die each year! That’s quite alarming!
However, DVT is not the only medical condition that involves blood clots but it is one of the most common. For many, the blood clot signs are not clear; thus, it is difficult to determine their correct condition. Many have been misdiagnosed because of the lack of clear symptoms.
What are the most common signs? Of course, symptoms could vary among patients, depending on several factors but often, the patient experiences pain; often, this will be on the lower legs and on just one side.
Warmth could also be experienced in this painful leg while there could redness or swelling on the affected part. For more advanced cases, patients could already experience shortness of breath and chest pains associated with deep breathing. The worst cases could even involve coughing up blood!
The problem with the signs above is that these symptoms could also be experienced with a variety of other medical conditions. The telltale sign would be pain in the lower leg. So, be on the lookout for that – do not ignore a simple leg pain because this might already be an indication that there are blood clots in the area.
Did you know that these blood clots can travel to other parts of the body, particularly to the lungs causing pulmonary embolism? This could be very dangerous! So, do not ignore blood clot signs.
Addiction to prohibited drugs can be tough on you and your family but there is now an easier way to get rid of your opiate addiction: through the 48 hour rapid detox. Safe and done by professionals, the detox procedure helps treat those addicted to drugs like Vicodin, Codeine, Morphine, Heroin, and Oxycontin. With rapid detox, the treatment is compressed into a few hours, instead of days. This allows the patient to feel less withdrawal effects on his own.

I received another package from my sister in Colorado yesterday. Most of the things that were in the package were for women. Things like make-up and earrings. I will be taking all of them to the Philippines because they are light. I will be leaving for the Philippines a week from tomorrow. Time flies fast and I know it will be hard for me to leave my hubby here by himself, especially because he has been having leg pains lately. I wanted him to go with me but he resisted because it is a very long flight.
When we finally make friends with people, they up and move. It has happened four times already. Another friend is moving to New York this week. For the past few weeks, my hubby and I have been spending a lot of time with them. Last night we took them out to dinner and came back to their place. My friend gave me some of her clothes that she has outgrown, earrings, make-up, lamps, wall decor and a purse. She told me that she still has a lot of things to give me and that she would call me in the next day or two to come pick them up.
I considered all of the stuff that she gave me as early Christmas presents from her. I like all of it and the clothes fit me well. Next summer we might visit them in New York and our other friends who moved there a couple of years ago. I have been wanting to see New York and it might happen next year. This time we have a lot of reasons to go there other than just sight seeing.
I have been having problems sleeping lately because my legs have been hurting. I have to ask my hubby to put pressure on my legs so I can get to sleep. He also has some leg pain but it is opposite of mine. Even just a little bit of pressure causes his legs to ache. The pain is usually abated when he takes an aspirin. My legs were hurting these past few days because I have been working hard in front of the computer. I don’t have a foot stool where I can put my legs up.
My younger sister told me that maybe it is some kind of varicose veins. I sure hope not. I am planning on taking a nap later on this afternoon. It is only noon but I am already feeling tired. Maybe it is due to lack of sleep last night.
