Hello, I'm new to this site. I'm 40 years old and am 9 weeks post an unprovoked PE. I am on blood thinners at least until genetic testing can be done in 6 months. My concern is, I am still very short of breath and it seems to be getting worse. When I get short of breath, I also getting a rapid heartbeat feeling. I also suffer from high blood pressure (another genetic issue). Occasionally, I also get clammy. My doctors simply say it takes time to heal and also say I can't get more clots while on blood thinners. Has anyone else had this happen? Should I be concerned? I do see a Pulmonologist on Aug 9th for a first time visit.
