Blood clots are some gel-like masses formed by platelets and fibrin in the blood to stop bleeding. The blood clot in a coronary artery may cause heart attack.
The possible symptoms of blood clots in coronary artery (heart attack) include:
- Pressure, tightness, pain, or a squeezing or aching sensation in your chest or arms that may spread to your neck, jaw or back
- Lightheadedness or sudden dizziness
- Shortness of breath
- Nausea, indigestion, heartburn or abdominal pain
- Cold sweat
Besides, blood clots can occur in other parts of the body:
- Blood clot in an artery of the brain may cause stroke.
- Blood clot in the lung may cause pulmonary embolus, or PE.
- blood clot in an intestine artery may cause mesenteric ischemia.
