I have a 10 week old daughter and a week after she was born I was in hospital after having great difficulty to breathe. After a CT scan I was diagnosed with 2 'huge' palmonary embolisms, one on each lung. I am being treated with an anticogulant and feel better, still breathless at times. This is my 4th child and apparently it is pregnancy related, although I've never had blood clots before. I have been tested for Hughes Syndrome - Antiphospholipid syndrome or 'sticky blood syndrome' but this has come up as normal. Are there any other conditions that could have caused this? I was tested for sticky blood because I have also had 6 miscarriages and suffer from migraines which are also symptoms of Hughes Syndrome.
I am trying to research this and would appreciate any advice out there!
