3 years ago I had a blood clot in my brain and had minor strokes. Released from hospital and rushed a week later for clots in my lungs. Lived again. Coumadin since and no problems. In last two weeks, I have a dripping feeling like in my blood vessel in lower left leg. Anyone heard of this??

  • Can you describe the "dripping feeling" better? Do you have any swelling? I think you should see a doctor ASAP to rule out DVT in your left leg.

  • Sorry for writing DVT. DVT = deep venous thrombosis. It doesn't mean you have a new clot, but I would still see a doctor to rule it out. There are many atypical "silent" clots that are never discovered, but may nevertheless be dangerous. I wrote ASAP because if this would be a clot, the sooner you get treatment the better prognosis. Also the left leg is the most common body part for blood clots. Hopefully it's not a clot, I keep my fingers crossed. Good luck!
