Just three days before Paul Bearer died, he complained he was suffering a blood clot ... TMZ has learned.

"Cowboy" Bob Kelly -- one of the board members of a prominent wrestling society called the Cauliflower Alley Club -- tells TMZ he last saw Paul on March 2nd at a Club reunion.

Bob says Paul was in bad health, with a severe breathing problem.  According to people at the event, Bearer was coughing and had trouble standing for long periods of time.  He told people he was going to seek treatment for what he called "respiratory issues."

Bob says Paul went to the hospital immediately following the reunion. 

Bob says he was later informed the famed wrestling manager was being treated for a blood clot.

Saturday was the last time Bob spoke to Paul.  He was 58.

EVERYONE: Don't mess with a blood clot. They will always kill you UNLESS you have immediate surgery. If you THINK you have a blood clot, get checked out!

Lets be honest this guy did not look like he lead a healthy lifestyle, why am I not surprised he kicked the bucket with a blood clot. He kind of looks like every guy you see walking around any Atlantic City hotel lobby.
