DVT can be caused by lack of movement. They present as stiffness in the lower limbs, swelling and bruising.
When an artery clots and moves into the lungs, this is called a pulmonary embolism and can be fatal.
The arteries within the brain become blocked by a blood clot (thrombosis), this is called an Ischemic Stroke.
Stifness in your arm, irregular heartbeats are signs that you should see someone right away.
We are looking for brave souls to help tell their story to others. By sharing your story, you will help other #Thrombo patients to break down the barriers that each of us is facing within the health industry.
