So I was diagnosed with multiple pulmonary emboli last year. I came off blood thinners I think about 5 months ago roughly. I have regular d-dimers all of which have come back low. I have been having chest pain on and off since then and it got a bit better but now I am getting other symptoms and feeling quite unwell. I don't know if it is my lungs, heart, spine or a neurological condition. I keep getting this horrible feeling around the top of my spine below my neck to the left and right. It feels unpleasant and hot and makes me feel quite sick. I don't have it all of the time it comes and goes every couple of days. I still get pleuritic pain but the other day I got really bad central chest pains and rapid heartbeat up to 170 bpm when I took a short walk. I have also been experiencing quite bad headaches on and off. I was also getting a really sharp pain in my left side of my chest the other day. I regularly take my blood pressure which is normal and I have a pulse oximeter which is ok. The lowest my oxygen goes to is 90 and is worse when my hormone levels change every month, most of the time it is around 94-96.
I am aware that some people can have pain for quite a while after pulmonary emboli, but I had no lung infarction and the pain feels different than what I experienced before. One more thing, I only experienced this once, but it was a pain under the front of my right shoulder that lasted a few hours. It also made me feel sick.
Has anyone else had these symptoms and do you know what they could be?
