Hello. I'm 18 years old male. I have been experiencing PE symptoms for 6 days now. It all started on monday with very bad leg pain. It felt like there was a belt tied around my calf. This was also associated with feeling dizzy. Fortunately the pain went away. But like 30mins after I started to feel like I had shortness of breath. It got worse over the day and I couldn't sleep at night because of it. Shortness of breath was much worse when lying down. Also started to develope some pretty bad back pain. I do get some sharp feelings when I breath deep. I have seen 2 doctors and I have gone to the ER 2 times.
Doctors think I don't have PE. The second doctor also said that my leg and chest symptoms are "seperate things". in ER I had my vitals taken, blood pressure is good and heart rate is around 70-80. But It has been once over 100. It might have been because I'm so anxous about this. Oxygen saturation is at 99%. Chest x-ray and ECG are normal. After xray and ecg ER doctor said that "ECG didn't indicate any sings of PE and xray was normal too" "we can rule out PE".
I'm not getting any help. I have still all the symptoms. It hurts to breath, Impossible to sleep because of shortness of breath, back pain.... It's a nightmare. My own doctor comes back to duty on monday, so I have to wait and call him. Maybe he can do D-dimer blood test for me. I'm scared because I think I might not make it to monday. This has been going on already for 6 days. Also the tight feeling in my leg is back. Hurts mostly when climbing stairs.
I know this post is just a mess, but I'm so anxious. Sorry guys.
