Legs are hurting. I feel like I might have another clot going on. Don't understand how being on the xarelto but then again a friend got 2 leg clots and 2 separate PEs

Today I tried to plant some flowers and had an awful time coughing and out of breath now I'm sitting here getting stabbed in the chest with what feels like an ice pick. Sharp stabbing pains. Crude I hate these feelings. Never know should I go to ER and check it out or just wait it out and see what's happening. Could it be what was stabbing me in my legs earlier moving thru my chest landing up there???

      Legs will hurt for awhile with PE, they will puff up and then go down, it will do this for awhile yet.

      The other thing is Xarelto can cause this too. I'm now off the Xarelto due to it causing chest pains 1-2 hours after taking it, I am now on Pradaxa and no more chest pains after taking it.

      Ohh and yes chest pain would be persistant with PE but the doctors always ask me does it hurt when I breathe with my chest pain, but it doesn't  , I'm new to these PE's, was only diagnosed 5 weeks ago with multiple clots in both lungs that started off in my left calf muscle they tell me. sometimes it hurts to breathe but not often, the troublesome bit is the breathlesness and fatigued.

    Get to the ER.  Those Ice pick pains could be blood clots in your lungs.  I had the same pain May 2.  After two days, it just got worse.  They said if I waited, I could have died.

      I wasn't sure because the clot in my Right Lung ( and I don't know how long it was there) just felt like pressure. No pain just heaviness. So I want sure. I stayed home and went to sleep last night feel ok today just have the heaviness. So I will call the Doc.
