I am having achy neck pain on the left side and back of my neck.

  I am concerned about blood clots. And i'm wondering what symptoms you would have if you had a blood clot in your neck.

Most often you would get swelling, pain, and possibly nausea and/or dizziness if in the neck.  Most blood clots however occur in the lower body.  I would see your doctor asap or go to the ER if you suspect a clot.  The reason clots are serious is because if it breaks and travels it can clog an artery.  For example a pulmunary embolism is when a clot blocks the artery of the lungs.
