Symptom #2: Dyspnea

Dyspnea, or shortness of breath, describes the feeling where an individual is unable to breathe well. It is a subjective feeling where the affected person often describes experiencing chest tightness, air hunger, and requiring an increased effort to breath. Most cases of dyspnea are due to cardiovascular or respiratory related issues such as asthma, pneumonia, interstitial lung disease, cardiac ischemia, psychogenic causes, and congestive heart failure.

Dyspnea is typically not a direct symptom of a blood clot in the leg; however, if dyspnea occurs in an individual suspected of having a blood clot it could be considered a medical emergency due to the possibility of the clot traveling to the lungs.
