Thank you Davedsel, currently i am not taking any meds for this CTBeth, thank you... actually i went into the ER because i was having severe chest pains, left side of my body from the top of my head to my feet were numb, tingling and weak. i have been going through some extremely stressful times, so i just thought it was stress, all the tests for my heart came back negative, everything was good, they said the blood test for clots was positive. i have seen my primary doc and she is referring me to a cardiologist ASAP, because i am still having pains in my chest but this pain with my leg is insane, the pain started down near my ankle and now it is almost up to my knee..this might sound like a really dumb question but does the pain travel with the clot, even if a little piece were to break off?? i told my doc i feel dumb going to the ER again, i don't want them thinking i'm crazy..but better safe then sorry.View Thread
