Hi I was wondering if anyone could help me. I had multiple clots on both lungs 8 months ago. I now have suddenly developed a big bruise on my arm and on my lower back which is very painful. I have been quite short of breath and have a bit of a cough this last few days. I also seem to be getting pains in some of my joints? Does anyone know what this could be? I no longer take any medication for the clots which incidentally were caused by DVT.

I hope I am not speaking out of turn, but as a fellow patient I would be on the phone to one of my doctors promptly, Christmas or not. I am sure they would want to know, especially given your history, even if just to rule out any concerns. Very best.

This is really outside of what we could really speculate about, but it it's a significant concern and a new symptom, it's definitely appropriate to reach out to your doctor(s). It's possible that you have a significant bleeding disorder that could likely be clarified with some blood tests.
