I recently was diagnosed with DVT in my left calf. I was put on Xarelto and sent home and told I could return to work. The next day I had a tiny pinching feeling in both of my lungs so I had a bit of a panic and called my mom who took me in to the ER. They did a CT scan and determined I have small blood clots in both lungs. They switched me from Xarelto to Eliquis and discharged me. I am supposed to go in for a follow up within one month and then again after three months. They seem to think that it might be a result of my birth control as I am only 22 and have no other risk factors. I am still quite a bit nervous and can't seem to cope with the anxiety of this condition. I still feel the pinching and slight heaviness in my lungs but I was told that was normal. I still have quite a bit of pain in my left leg and I was wondering how long it took others to recover from something like this? Also when you resumed exercise or normal activity? Or any coping mechanisms to deal with the anxiety? I guess I will have to get used to the feeling in my lungs but it does make me quite nervous.
