    Why you should be worrying about Dvt at this time seems so counter productive.

    If you have been looking through Google can make us feel we have illnesses that we do not have.

    If you need to research a condition try NHS CHOICES they have explanations that could put your mind at rest although I would recommend you talk to your GP as He knows you and can recommend some test to put your mind at rest

    Oh Steph!

    What next, darling?

    Of course you haven't got a DVT. It hurts (in the calf of your leg) so much that you can hardly walk. It also becomes hot and throbs.

    As for the PE - that is a serious medical emergency and if you had one it would be sudden and very obvious because you'd pass out.

    People don't have Pulmonary Emboli for days on end! It's a really sudden, painful and extremely obvious emergency.

    So calm down and relax, and remember what a great holiday you've just had.

    love Tess xx
