I was just curious to find out about other people's experiences. How long before you got a diagnosis? What were your symptoms? Also, has anyone completely got rid of them and has had no problems since?
I got mine from the pill Dianette, I had symptoms for years before diagnosis. Chest pain, palpitations, breathlessness, gravelly feeling in my chest, a dry cough, trouble taking in a deep breath, electric shock type feelings in my chest, pin prick feelings and warmth in my lungs, the feeling something was stuck in my throat, hot flushes, the chills, cramps and pins and needles.
I am 7 months on from diagnosis, I still have breathing issues and chest pains but not as bad. I don't get bad palpitations like before, but my heart can get pretty fast here and there. I still have a cough but the feeling in my throat has gone. The electric shock feeling, cramps and pins and needles have stopped. I recently stopped my blood thinners and the warm, pin prick feelings came back as well as this thudding pain in my back, I started taking them again out of fear and I now have a chest infection. So I am not sure whether the chest discomfort was down to my PEs coming back or because of the infection. I am going to carry on with the blood thinners though. When you get chest infections, do your minor PE symptoms come back? Could that just be where the blood clots may have done a bit of damage?
