By far the most common form of pulmonary embolism is a thromboembolism, which occurs when a blood clot, generally a venous thrombus, becomes dislodged from its site of formation and embolizes to the arterial blood supply of one of the lungs. Symptoms may include difficulty breathing, pain during breathing, and more rarely circulatory instability and death.
Has anyone experienced pain below their right rib cage? I don't get it all the time but it happens evry now and then. It happens most when I am driving. It almost feels like my rib is catching on my stomache.
