A Blood clot is a jelly-like substance, and it is the final product of hemostasis. It is formed due to coagulation of blood, and its formation is very necessary for stopping continuous blood flow in case of damage to any blood vessel.
However, in some cases, blood begins to coagulate even when it is not required. This results in discontinuous blood flow resulting in strokes.
The good part is that human body begins showing the signs of clotting in advance, giving you the plenty of time to get the clot removed.
In this post, I’ll share eight such signs with you.
