I have never had a PE, although I have had a heart attack and 2 strokes. I have aps along with lupus sle, lac, anticardiolipin antibodies, protein s&c deficiencies and fibro. Recently I was having some chest pains so my doc admitted me and ran tests. The heart was good, but they found old embolisums(sp). I told them that I have never had a P.e. How did these old embolisums get there?
