I had a bilateral P.E. about 3 weeks ago. Ever since then for the last 2 weeks or so I have been having intense leg cramps that never happen at the same time on both legs but will switch from the right leg to the left leg, sometimes the cramping feels like something is wrapped around my legs, my feet and legs also have a numbing sensation occasionally. My legs are incredibly tight. They did an ultra sound on my legs and there was no DVT that showed up, so my question is could they have missed it? Or is this an issue with blood flow being restricted somehow because of the clots in my lungs? Having a lot of anxiety about this, It would be nice to get some reassurance from anyone out there who might have dealt with a similar scenerio. I am also on xarelto 15 mg twice a day until this monday then switch to 20 mg once a day, Could this be a side effect of the medicine? Other than that I have minimal pain in the upper body, still hurts a tiny bit to breathe but it's the leg tightness that's throwing me off. Greatly appreciate any responses as I have talked to my doctor and he brushes it off.
