My running didn't cause my blood clots

One question I have is whether or not my running caused my blood clots. I don't remember if I've already posted the answer to that question, so I'm doing it again to be sure the answer does get posted.

When I left the ER at the hospital and went to my new room, I asked the doctor if my running had caused the clots. He said, "No". He said that running should help avoid clots rather than cause clots. Running improves blood circulation while blood clots are formed when blood coagulates from being stagnant.

  1. I do believe your blood clots was caused by your own belief of sitting with the computer too long, highly unlikely running would cause the clots.
