Red face scared of pulmonary embolisim, only 18

Im 18, for the last 3 months Ive had mono and spent the most of it in bed, im starting to feel better finally. But today I woke up with a pain on the right side of my chest, that happens when I breath in, sometimes it almost feels like a squeezing, I also have some pain in my back on the right side. Does this sound like a pulmonary embolisim? I know the signs are shortness of breath and pain when breathing in, someone tell me im just being stupid?

Re: scared of pulmonary embolisim, only 18

Well, I think it's rude to tell someone that they are stupid....but please don't worry. This doesn't sound like a DVT. I have had one-unpleasant as it was.

You are sore because you have spent so much time in bed that your muscles tend to cramp up and cause soreness. From what you wrote I bet that you slept on your right side during the night and it caused the tightness that you are feeling.

If you are starting to feel better try just stretching our a little bit to get your muscles moving and your blood flowing. Both of my sons had mono so I know how crappy you have felt. Here's hoping that you finally med quickly!
