I had hundreds of PEs in both lungs in 2013. They were undiagnosed for 5 months and could have easily died. Repeatedly was told it was anxiety. After my suggestion, a pulmonary CT was done and a "heavy burden of clots" was discovered. I have been on warfarin since and for life. Last week I asked my respirologist why I continue to have crackles in my right lung. He said it was from scar tissue. With any virus that goes around, my lungs are susceptible. This was news to me, don't get chest pain, but am short of breath if I carry things going up stairs. So that explains that for me. Glad I found this site, although there are not many recent comments.
