Symptoms Of A Blood Clot And How To Prevent Them

HUFF POST – Blood clots can be dangerous. Here are the signs to look out for, and what to do about it.

Most people probably don’t think about blood clots on a regular basis. But with reports of a small number of people developing blood clots after they received either the Johnson & Johnson or the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, many people are now wondering what the warning signs are.

There are several different variations of blood clots, each with its own set of red flags and options for treatment. They can form for a number of reasons, including medication, lifestyle factors and other health conditions, and they can occur in different parts of the body.
