What are the symptoms of arterial clots?

You may not have any symptoms at first. As the aterial clot grows or blocks more of your blood flow, you might notice any of the following:

  • Cold arm or leg
  • Fingers or hands that feel cool to the touch
  • Muscle pain or spasm in the affected area
  • Numbness or tingling in your arm or leg
  • Weakness of the affected limb
  • Loss of color in the affected limb
