Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Normally blood clots are the body’s way of healing itself. However, they become dangerous if they form when not needed or if they interfere with the circulatory system.

Travelling blood clots can be very dangerous. We cannot say if a carnival ride could cause a clot to travel in your case.

Have you actually been diagnosed with a clot in your elbow or are you self-diagnosing? The latter is not safe; you need this to be confirmed. Please see a doctor and talk to him about your concerns.
