Recently diagnosed, strange symptoms

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had covid within 6 weeks of have a c section birth. That combo unfortunately gave me a bunch of clots in both lungs. I'm on Heparin that I'm injecting at home so that I can continue nursing my 2 month old. A day after starting the Heparin injection at home I started having pain in my left arm that's a considerable ache. Worse in my wrist and hand. I'm now having that pain in both arms and occasionally in my legs. The pharmacist doesn't suspect that that is from the medication so I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced arm and leg pain from their clots?
