Blood Clots - Connected with PMR?
I am a 66 year old male and was diagnosed with PMR about a nine months ago after symptoms arose about a year ago. I was recently diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in both lungs) which can be life threatening. I had ultrasounds of both my legs and no clots were found and I had no symptoms of blood clots in my legs. Neither my rheumatologist nor my Hematologist thought it was likely that the blood clots had anything to do with my PMR. My gut tells me however, that the blood clots are related to my PMR and I was wondering if anybody in this support group had any similar experience that might shed light on how I ended up with blood clots in my lungs.
