Am presently doing several blood tests and MRI along w/ some tests on my legs to follow up on a geen ( sorry for the mispealing ) mutation that was found that causes boold clots.

I meant to say blood clots.
Expert:  Cyndi replied 8 years ago.
Okay..

Well a sudden rise in your blood surgar can cause this, also a sudden rise in your heart rate and or blood pressure too.

What I would do is when this is happening. Test your Blood pressure, heart rate and blood sugar. See if anything is out of the normal range.
Normal for blood pressure is 90 over 40 to 110 over 70.
Normal heart rate for NON athlete is 60-100 per min.
Normal blood sugar is 60-110. It can be up to 140 if you had food 2 hours before.

Keep a record of what you are doing at the time.
Some of your medications( Wellbutrin XL )also have FLUSHING as side effects. Did this start AFTER you started a NEW medication. If it did, can be the cause.

AS far as blood clots, not a symptom per say, if you had neurological problems at that same time. I would look harder into it.

Good luck and God Bless.
I you have any questions just ask.
