Hello, I have been just been diagnosed with a PE about 3 weeks ago and am done taking the lovenox shots and am on coumidan now. Is it normal to have a pain and it is one that comes and goes...moreso after I eat something. I have been taking tums and thinking it is heartburn and it does relieve the pain as well as laying down helps the pain. Certain foods irritate me more than others now. All this started after the PE was diagnosed. I am still in shock that this happened to me. I did not feel that bad and really feel worse now. I also just had an "echo" done and the tech who of course could not say much did say there was an "abnormality" and could be caused from the PE. OK....so made an appointment with the doctor and am very concerned. Any advice and words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated!!
