"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes says she's not out of the woods yet ... after doctors found blood clots in her lung.

NeNe was hospitalized last month. after suffering shortness of breath ... and that's when doctors found the clots.

NeNe was looking good at LaGuardia Airport in NYC and she gave us the low down on what could have been a fatal problem.

I wish the best for Nene! She's a true personality, despite how she originally became a "household name". She's really worked hard for where she is in mainstream entertainment.

These are the steps involved as cocaine causes a heart attack:
1. The heart speeds up.
2. Blood pressure increases and it becomes harder for the heart to pump out blood against this increased blood pressure.
3. The stimulation of the nerves to the heart speeds the heart faster and faster.
4. The heart works harder and harder until it can't keep its beat--the heartbeat becomes irregular.
5. The heart can't pump out blood, so the blood pools and clots.
6. A blood clot stops the heart.
7. The cocaine user dies.

TMZ... get it right. She said she had no trouble breathing. She was having pain in her front, side and radiating around to the back and then the next day she felt pain in her upper shoulder.. which is why she went to the hospital. Not trouble Breathing!

I remembered when she didn't talk to tmz at the airport and looked at the camera man like he was crazy...I guess a near death experience will knock you off that high horse
