I don't know if this applies to this specific board but maybe some of you guys can help me out to figure out what's going on and if I should be really worried about it.

About 4 days ago I started having really bad chest pains on the right side of my body. It hurts from my neck to about 2/3s of my stomach. I've been having a hard time breathing and it's like a constant pressure that sometimes gets worse (like a stabbing pain) when I breathe or cough or even really just move.

I've already set up a doctor's appt but I have to wait for another 15 days before they can see me. Should I just wait till my scheduled appt or should I go see an ER Dr?

I am doing well at the moment. After being in the hospital for 5 days I was ready to come home. They've given me blood thinners and basically told me not to do anything reckless. (Which kinda sucks since my 21st B-day was while I was in the hospital). But as long as I take it easy and be careful the clot should be gone in about 6 months.

I did finally go to the ER and they found a blood clot in my right lung. They've got it under control for the most part. Thanks for your concern though ^_^

I am sorry I didn't see this sooner.
I would go to the ER just to make sure everything is okay.
Please let us know how you are doing.
