Beware.. these symptoms mean you have a blood clot

Recent reports linking the Corona virus vaccine from “AstraZeneca” to a very rare type of blood clot revealed symptoms of blood clots.

Reports have spread of a very rare, but serious case that includes blood clots and unusual bleeding after vaccination with the “AstraZeneca” vaccine, and the cases are carefully reviewed, but the risk factors are not yet clear, according to (Russia Today).

The European Medicines Agency (EMA), Europe’s drug regulatory body, has compiled a list of the main warning signs of blood clots and says patients should seek medical help immediately if they develop the following symptoms:

• Shortness of breath.

• Swelling in the leg.

• Chest pain.
• Persistent abdominal pain.
• Neurological symptoms, including severe and persistent headaches or blurred vision.
• Small spots of blood appear under the skin other than the injection site.

A combination of blood clots and low platelet counts are known to be a defining feature of people receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine. Platelets are defined as colorless blood cells that help blood clot, so low platelets should theoretically lead to excessive bleeding and not blood clots.

One plausible explanation that has been put forward is that the combination of blood clots and low platelets is an immune response, resulting in a condition similar to the condition sometimes seen in patients treated with heparin (a blood thinner used to treat and prevent blood clots).
