    OK - while I canít give you an explanation of all your symptoms I can share an experience of PE that will hopefully help. Years ago my Dad went to A&E because of a sudden onset of severe symptoms. He had a very very swollen, hard, red and painful calf. He then began having quite severe chest pain and shortness of breath. Long story short he had a DVT the entire length of his right leg that broke off into his lungs causing a PE. He was in hospital for about a week and after that he didnít have any issues with it again. Although he was on warfarin from that point. Anyway my point being. He was in extreme pain and was quite clearly acutely very ill, it wasnít something anybody had time to sit and question. If you had a PE you would know about it.

    Thank you for sharing that with me, it gives me a better understanding of things. Glad to hear your dad is doing well now as well!

    Why did you delete your thread in Symptoms? All the reassurance and advice gone. Disrespectful to say the least

    I second this. It also removes information about your state of anxiety and panic that potential respondents to this thread are entitled to having before offering advice.

    Scass and I were last ones to reply and she just deleted the whole thread - presumably so it wasn't merged with any more new posts

    Woah Woah Woah, hang on a minute. I'm not disrespecting anyone, that's really hurtful. I couldn't get a cohesive thread because their were different answers that didn't relate to what was being talked about.

    I'm not going to keep repeating myself and apologising consistently, it was deleted because I couldn't understand which answer was for which question as they were becoming mixed up so the whole thread wasn't cohesive. I have not been disrespectful and it really hurts when people all start attacking me for something as simple as a thread being deleted. I'm going through enough without feeling like I'm a horrible person for something so simple.

    Sorry you walked into this, apparently I've done a terrible thing by removing an older thread that I had asked different questions on but became muddled full of different answers. Thanks for replying earlier, I just don't think I can come on here again. I may even delete my account, I just can't cope with this on top of my real life personal problems. Sometimes I don't know why I bother even trying anymore... What's the point in anything.

    @nomorepanic Can you please delete my account. I'm leaving for good, thank you.

    Regards,

    Mischa.
