I WAS DIAGNOSED BACK I JUNE WITH DVT IN LEFT LEG, I WENT BACK FOR 6 MONTH CHECK UP AND THE CLOTS ARE STILL THERE. THE LAST FOUR OR FIVE DAYS I NOTICED I FEEL LIKE I PULLED A MUSCLE UNDER MY LEFT SHOULDER BLADE AND IT HURTS WHEN I BREATHE IN AND IM EXTREMELY WINDED, THE SMALLEST WALK MAKES ME GASP FOR AIR IN A SENSE, I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH A NEW VASCULAR DR IN THE MORNING BUT COULD I POSSIBLY HAVE A PE?

    This are signs and symptoms of a pe. I had bilateral pes in November 2016 although I had no symptoms other then a little chest pain. Are you on blood thinners if not I'd get to an ER and tell them you might have a pe so they can do a ct scan with contrast.

    Was you put onto any type of anti coagulants when the DVT was found ? If you weren't given any treatment I find this very strange and weird. The doctor(s) would of known that it would of broken off and could lodge in your heart or lung(s), usually lungs.

    Hi Samantha .. I had multi PE two years ago, but no DVT was detected in my legs,... my first signes were going from going to the gym 6 days aweek, to not being able to walk up my staires at home, I had two episodes where I woke in the nite, with chest pains, but it went after a few hours.... I never dreemed or throught about blood clots...

    It tuk 6 months for my doc arrange for me to go to the hospital and was told I’m very lucky to still be alive🤔 I’m on apixaban now for life, if for one moment I throught it was PE I’d been down to A&E with out fail..

    So as not sure if your on any blood thinners??? I would get this checked out straight away... your life is more inportant then feeling silly about aces and pains, I wish I’d gone straight to hospital, but we just put it down to other things... good luk chic please let us know how you get on big hug 🤗x
