Coughing is also an accompanying symptom of advanced DVT and PE-associated shortness of breath.
It is indicative of the obstruction caused by a blood clot that has travelled to the lungs, making breathing impossible and manifesting the irritation through incessant coughing.
Such coughing may or may not be accompanied by blood.
10. Extreme Sweating
A person with advanced DVT and possible PE will suffer, along with the above-mentioned symptoms, an extreme case of sweating. They are also likely to feel light-headed, as if they could pass out any minute.
Night sweats also are a common occurrence in patients of PE, and can help detect PE at an early stage, according to a 2015 study published in Case Reports in Pulmonology.
The blood clot in the leg can not only travel to the person’s lungs but also their heart and brain, resulting in a heart attack or a stroke.
Therefore, if you notice any of the above symptoms at any point of your life, it is best to get it properly diagnosed.
