My husband had severe pain in one side of his back and shortness of breath. He is being investigated for a possible blood clot. Nothing I have read mentioned this severe pain (particularly when taking a deep breath). Is this a common sympton or could he be suffering from something else?
Just thought I'd tell you my experience. I've got a blood clot in my lung, have shortness of breath but no pain. My clot is a couple of months old now and I never had the pain. I don't know if my experience is typical or not.....
