7/25/11 update,no major changes in my lung function,still feel short of breath most of the time, doctors telling me that my symptoms are all in my head,more pain in my left legthan before leaving the hospital,again dr says since my inr is 2.9 that i simply cant have leg pain,again this is all a figment of my imagination. I have sort of given up on moderm medicine but im afaid that if i stop all meds that i could stroke out. still cant undertand why the doctors cant find out or dont care why i still suffer these post p.e. problems. can someone out there offer some guidance. I am at the end of my rope with these so-called professionals.thanks
Symptoms of pulmonary embolism include difficulty breathing, chest pain on inspiration, and palpitations. Clinical signs include low blood oxygen saturation and cyanosis, rapid breathing, and a rapid heart rate. Severe cases of PE can lead to collapse, abnormally low blood pressure, and sudden death.

Is this anxiety or something else?Sometimes I will randomly get faint. Cold, sweaty, pale skin, and my hands get tingly. Shaky and heavy breathing. I have no idea why, there is no medical reason. I just feel lightheaded and faint. Beforehand I would always get pain in the back of my head and neck....
