When the blood clot gets to the lungs, the person will develop severe pains in the chest and sides. The pain will be sharp, intense and burning. The region will be achy and feel heavy.
Sudden, sharp pain in the chest could indicate a PE. It often hurts a lot more when breathing — a scary sign that a blood clot has formed in or around the heart. If the pain is dull and in the arm, it may signal a heart attack. Pain from a PE is usually sharper, but it may also appear in the arms as well.
5.Pain while moving
If simple movement causes pain it is another early warning sign of a potential blood clot. A person who experiences discomfort from normal acts like bending over, laughing or coughing, it is an indication that a clot has potentially arrived in the lungs and must be treated quickly. An additional problem when this happens is the panic that sets in with the individual who does not understand what is happening. Report to the emergency room for treatment as soon as possible as the condition is serious.
