Hi, I'm Dr. Nissinen.
How was your blood clot treated, are you still taking medication for it?
Any palpitations, any shortness of breath?
Also did they ever figure out where the blood clot came from?
Honestly, if you had no history of a blood clot I would not be very concerned, however given your history of having a blood clot it does raise your risk for another one. Pain as what you are describing could be just from muscles but if the underlying lung is affected it can also cause irritation of the lining of the lung which would cause pain upon a deep breath. I believe you should be checked out....it's better to be safe than sorry.
