pulmonary embolism and plurisy

Hello...I have had quite a winter and was just wondering if anyone may have the same experience or any suggestions.
I had been diagnosed with pnuemonia and went home and for 2 hours sit in recliner....I got up and immediately felt pain in my right lower lung area....It was a pulmonary embolism and the kind of pain that I can't describe....plurisy was also diagnosed....I was put on blood thinners of course, and 2 rounds of anti-inflammatory ...but the pain has come back since I took the last of the anti-inflmmatory medication.....Is this a common thing or something more??
It is just a very localized pain in the same area where the blood clot was or still is???  It is dull and tolerable without tylenol,,,but I don't want to look over  this if it could be something more serious.
Thank you all for any advice.   Mel

Hi I seem to be having some lung issues which are nothing like they have been in the past. After reading about embolisms I see maybe my lungpain could be from this.How did they determine it was a emblism?

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If you had both pulmonary embolism and pleurisy, and the pain continues, in all probability the pleurisy has not resolved completely. Pulmonary clots also take time to resolve. Please consult your specialist immediately for further follow up.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
