I'm 23 and had pulmonary embolisms last year after taking the pill (apparently the cause) I had Severe pains all round my front and back, could hardly breathe and ended up with a lung infection also.. I've been fine since after coming off the tablets but the past few moths kept getting the odd pain in my chest then this past week -2weeks I've had a horrible pain in my back near my shoulder blade and don't know if it's to do with that or there back again? Has anyone else had the same problem?

    I suggest you speak to your Dr as young as you are it can also be your gall bladder or a number of other things. Every ache and pain I get I just Know it has to be another PE but it isn't. Thank God!!

      Totally agree always on your mind!! Even though my legs have been checked every pain I get in my calf I just know it is one moving! They should never have told me they don't know where it came from do they don't know where the next one is going to go. And my appointment with the RA dr isn't until Jan 20th. Do they are in no hurry to find out how to stop them. Sigh. Take care of YOU!!!
