Q: intially I had a subclavian blood clot, left arm pain, facial numbness.

April 2008 I developed a left subclavian blood clot, with left hand pain beginning at my hand that gravitated up my arm to my shoulder. It continued up to my neck all the way to my face, at this point my face would go numb periodically.


The doctors found out that I also had an irregular heart/arrthymia it appears that it is caused from one of the chemotherapy drugs that were given to me about 4 years ago. It could be adriamycyn/cytoxin, or taxotere, one of the three, because I did not suffer any trauma to this arm. And the cancer has not returned.


Well in the last week I am having the same symptoms that I had before the blood clot resolved itself in October 2008, so I am wondering if it is possible that it could come back?


My arm is squeezing again all the way up my arm, and my face is feeling a little numb again?
