Symptons of Blood Loss or Clots?

I had a PE, or clot in my upper right lung, due to my hysterectomy. I thought it was asthma, but when my rescue inhaler and neb didn't work, I knew something was wrong. Also felt some chest pain. Went to the ER, had a CT and found a clot.

I'm don't know if you are asking out of curiosity or if you are not feeling well but of you are having symptoms that you think may be related to either internal bleeding or clots, please contact your doctor or ER as soon as possible. These are two things you don't want to ignore.

Symptons of Blood Loss or Clots?

This is my experience in an extreme situation, if you have any doubt or concerns please consult your doctor.

These were some of my first symptoms after SEVERE internal bleeding was dizzyness, stabbing pain in the shoulder and then I started passing out. I had a ruptured ectopic at 8 weeks gestation. I actually thought I had the flu at first, achy body etc. When I finally passed out and hit my head on the cast iron bathtub and woke up I knew something was seriously wrong. At this point I have been bleeding for a few days, everyone was having the flu with the same symptoms as me that's why I didn't know what was happening at first and waited so long. I have been bleeding for while and needed 11units transfused during emergency surgery. Keep in mind the average person has about 8-10 units in their body.
