Has anyone had superficial clots? Like on your arms? What did they look like/feel like? Were they painful? Were you on Coumadin when you got them? Are they dangerous? Can they cause another PE? I have a lump on the back of my forearm where there was a bruise last week. Bruises are nothing new -don't even know how it got there- but now there is about an inch wide lump that hurts when touched in that spot. Could it be a clot? I am already on Coumadin -last INR 2.8. They never found where my first PE came from, although they suspect from a leg injury 3 months before the PE.

I signed up a while ago but haven't felt like putting myself out there. I had my PE on December 8th 2017. I was alone and it was the scariest thing I have ever had to go through.

My dad had a DVT in his leg into two occasions. I am soon going to travel to Sudan and I would like him to come along to visit the country, but I'm afraid the extreme hot weather can be an issue for his health. Are people prone to DVT more at risk in warm weather? Does anyone know about this?Thanks in advance!
