Is It Deep Vein Thrombosis or a Muscle Injury?

Because deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and a simple muscle injury often have similar symptoms, it may be difficult for someone who is taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella to determine which of these is causing their symptoms. This is a serious concern for someone taking these medications, as they have been shown to increase a person’s chances of developing a blood clot. These blood clots can cause very painful or discomforting conditions like DVT, or may prove fatal if they become lodged in the bloodstream around a vital organ, such as the brain, heart, or lungs.

If you’ve developed a blood clot or are currently suffering from deep vein thrombosis while taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, you may be eligible to take legal action against the responsible drug manufacturer. To discuss what options may be available to you, contact a Yasmin lawyer of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187.

The Difference between DVT and a Muscle Injury

The symptoms of a muscle injury to the calf can be somewhat similar to those that develop as a result of DVT. However, there are three major differences between these two health conditions:

  • DVT will persist unless the clot dislodges, which then may cause life-threatening complications
  • DVT will cause visible blue or red skin discoloration, whereas a pulled muscle won’t
  • DVT will cause noticeably warmer skin to the touch, which is something an injured muscle will not do

As symptoms can vary, a person with any of these DVT warning signs should immediately see a doctor. If the results point to a blood clot and that person has been using a birth control drug like Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, they may be able to hold the drug manufacturer liable for their suffering and losses.
