A person can have blood clots with no symptoms. They don't become dangerous until they start moving, if they move.
I had blood clots when I was about 27 (I am 64 now), I had to go to the hospital because I was having bad chest pain. The doctor admitted me to the hospital and put me on blood thinner. Mine was due to birth control pills.
With your daughter's medical history, if I were you I would encourage her to go to the doctor/or the ER to be checked out.
I hope she starts feeling better soon.
