Hi, I was diagnosed with two small blood clots in my upper and lower right lung 7 weeks ago. I had no other symptoms apart from pain in back when breathing. I havent been on any long flights, no contraception, no surgery etc. I am 40 and was healthy although have a sedentary job and lifestyle. Consequently the doctors don't know why it happened. I am suffering from anxiety and panic attacks which I often cant differentiate from other worrying symptoms so my first question is has any one any advice on how to handle anxiety? Secondly I returned to work 3 weeks after my diagnosis but had bad pain in back and chest so waited another week and then returned to work again 9-1pm this worked ok and i was feeling much better until this week when I increased my hours to 9-3. During a meeting I was leading, felt like a tight band around my chest, then massive panic attack and off work today. I am getting no advice from any medical practitioners except listen to your body. So any additional advice on here or similar stories about how far to push yourself would be appreciated. Finally I want to get better and prevent a recurrence so any advice on diet, the amount of exercise to do and whether a glass of red wine a night is ok would all be appreciated. Thank you, cathy x
