So basically I started coughing up blood two weeks ago and after a few doctors visits, I got a CT scan and they found multiple PEs in both lungs. The next day after starting on Lovenox and Coumadin I had a severe "PE attack" (extreme pain in lung/heart area). I know a lot of you guys have felt one of these. I could not lay down, breath deeply, laugh, cough, without severe chest pain. This lasted about 15 hours, but I was put one some good pain medication. The doctors are still puzzled about the cause of my PE since I am not the normal PE patient. They say it may be genetic, but I will have to wait for more test results. So my question is are there any others with a similar situation?
