Question: I have two DVTs, one below the calve and one in the groin. I have been been on high dose asprin therapy and compression stocking following a two year run on cumadin ( from 5 DVT and multiple PE) I have since been diagnosed with asthma and am treated with inhalers. I am experiencing chest pains with increasing amounts and an unproductive cough. The inhalers are not helping and the pains are coming with nausea and facial sweating in addition to fatigue. I am curious if this is just asthma as I am very active or something more that the doctors are missing again?

To rule out PTE

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Ms

It's unusual to see appearance of asthma at the age of 42 years. Late onset of asthma is very rare. Based on your co - existing history of DVT & PTE possibility of pulmonary thromboembolism needs to be considered and ruled out. I would suggest you to consult your Physician and discuss this probability.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Take care

Best regards

He has had croup since he was two and the doctors feel he continues to have croup time to time when weather is cold. Since he was little he has had a severe bark with shortness of breath which he takes flovent . Do you think croup could of caused the enlarged ventricle? Could an enlarged ventricle cause no symptoms?

I have had sharp pains in my chest 3 times in the last 3 months. 2 weeks ago as I was driving I had a feeling that someone stabbed me in the chest...then stab again...then again. 3 times it hit pain that took my breath away. I had to pull over and let my son drive home. The last time was Monday, I was sick at home with a bad headache and nausea , as I was just laying in my recliner it hit stab that lasted about a minute. Last night after working out I had a feeling in my upper chest that felt like someone was pinching something off, letting it go, then pinching it again. This feeling lasted for a while and made me feel like I needed to cough everytime that I felt the pinch. This too went away. This Morning I woke with my left calf feeling full and pain that is deep and dull, movement does not make this better or worse. All day my blood pressue has been rising...I know this cause when my blood pressure goes up high, my ears burn on the tops. Tonight I still am not feeling real well, tired, and my leg just will not stop hurting. When is it a point that I should go to the ER or should I?
