Bleeding and Clotting Disorders
Blood clot in wrist
on my inner wrist to the far right, I felt a stinging, sort of hot, sharp pain, like a bite. I could see the vein and when I felt it, it was hard. After the pain subsided, something like a bruise was left. I am a 41 yr old woman. Is this something for which I should seek immediate treatment?
