| | Pulmonary Embolism
I'm new to this site, but glad I found it. I have to have a V/Q scan done Wed. to find out if I have a PE in my lungs or heart. The chest pains are unbelievable. It feels like someone is pushing their elbow into my chest constantly. I get really bad headaches and it hurts to take deep breaths. Has anyone had this test done? I've read about it, but that's all I know. I was diagnosed with my 3rd DVT on 10/06/2004 and this pain started a few days after I got home from the hospital stay. Any advice on how to deal with a PE would be greatly appreciated.
