Hi all, I'm 35 years old and had severe chest pain since New Year's Eve, which I thought was a pulled muscle. Last Thursday I was diagnosed with a PE after blood test and CTPA scan (no leg swelling at all). I've been having daily blood tests, Heparin injections and Warfarin tablets but feel very alone and scared. I'm still having some pain in my shoulder, its not bad just uncomfortable. I'm also very, very tired and achy and a little short of breath at times. I notice my chest hurts more if I move about too much or try to do housework and stuff. Is this normal? Does the pain/discomfort continue for a while or should I go to hospital if I experience any pain? My legs have been a bit tingly at times and my feet are a little achy. Do the symptoms last a while or should they have gone after a few days of treatment? Many thanks
