I was wondering is it possible to have PE without feeling shortness of breath or pain while breathing?
My health issues started off when one morning I woke up and noticed swelling on my left calf. The swelling was not that bad just a round spot size of baby hand and it was itchy but painful to touch (it did not look like DVT, but it could have been phlebitis). After couple of days it disappeared so I thought it was just a bug bite or something. In the following days I started having pain in my left side of chest when I would take deep breath or lean forward and about after a week this pain developed into persistent pain one the left side of my chest which would also move to my left side of back. Right now I have persistent mid/ upper left back pain which does not intensify while I breathe and no other serious symptoms (I had done X Ray, some blood tests and everything looked fine so far).
So I thought is it possible in case you have small blood clot in your lungs which did not block the main artery in your lungs, but went into deeper veins and now is causing me this persistent pain?
