  • Mirena /pulmonary embolism
    Hi , I was on mirena @ six weeks post delivery of my second sons birth in August of 2011. In march of 2013 I felt extremely tired , sluggish , like I was sick . I also was experiencing tachycardia and fever . I went in to docs and he said I had a respiratory infection and sent me home with an inhaler . The next day it just didn't seem right why wasnt I getting any better ? I couldn't take care of my kids , my chest was racing , pushing a shopping cart was like trying to push a car !! I went into the ER thinking maybe I needed done kind of antibiotic nope I was wrong . They quickly hooked me up for EKG monitoring a speedy heart rate of 160 Bpm! Tested lung function , cat scan all to find 3 blood clots in my left lung ;( a 5 day hospital stay rushed by ambulance I must say the care was incredible and triaged very appropriately . They saved my life ! Now my questions ring loud !! Why ??? I was 33 years of age , healthy , low blood pressure , excercised on a regular basis . I smoked occasionally but not daily . I spoke with many docs and none of them felt mirena played a part in clot ! I'm shocked ! Really ? I had the iud removed by my choice not my docs revommendation but just letting all you ladies know that this was my experience and I am very skeptical of the mirena !! It's great not to get pregnant but it's better to be healthy and alive just saying ;) do your research ladies !! ;) I would love to hear from anyone that had similar experiences !!
  • Pulmonary embolism caused by octagam
    I was seen in the ED and diagnosed with severe allergic reaction. Three weeks later the true diagnosis, pulmonary emboli, was made. The PE's were cause by an IVIG product Octagam (it isn't listed in the drop down list so I put Gamophen instead) that had been previously recalled for causing pulmonary emboli and other embolic phenomenon.
  • Rigors with pulmonary embolism (2 responses)
    I was recently diagnosed with DVT in my right lower leg and pulmonary embolism and hospitalized. .I am now on Warfarin.A week earlier, I experienced severe chills ( rigors) and pain in my right lung.I ignored it as a " virus".As it turns out, I was actually having a pulmonary embolism .If anyone has these symptoms they should get treatment.I was lucky as my DVT showed itself a week later and I finally brought treatment.I hope it helps others.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I do have Relapsing-Remitting MS. Went to doctor the other day I thought the issue in my hips, leg which is occasional in the right hip but pretty constant in the left. It is not painful- but it feels tight- and I have slight problem walking. Also having balance issues. Doctor things the hip is bursitis and not related to the MS. I think it is spasticity.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I was on Tysabri for 6 months and ended up with breast cancer 2 months after I stopped taking it. Is there a correlation. I heard if you are Brac 1 or Brac 2 positive Tysbri could be the culprit. If anyone has family members that have had cancer, check if you are BRAC positive. It could save your life or at least a horrible ordeal.
