According to UMPC, the pain that characterises blood clots tends to have specific characteristics.
“As the clot worsens, you may feel a sensation ranging from a dull ache to intense pain. The pain may throb in your leg, belly or even arm,” explains the health body.
It continues: “Unlike the pain from a charley horse that usually goes away after stretching or with rest, the pain from a blood clot does not go away and usually gets worse with time.”
Ignoring the above signs can pave the way for varicose veins, pain, and ulcers, as a result of prolonged swelling.
