Question: Blood clots in young person
|blue - Thu Dec 16, 2004 12:14 pm||
I am wondering if an 18 year old could get a blood clot from sitting too much and sleeping too much.

Some of the causes of blood clots are poor circulation, recent heart attack or stroke, heart disease, varicose veins, long term inactivity, extended bed rest, injury to a vein from for example, a blow to the leg, etc. etc. It is not wise to sit too long or stay in bed to much as inactivity is certainly not healthy.
