What Does a Pulmonary Embolism Feel Like?
Symptoms of a PE can differ from person to person, but generally there are a few symptoms
that are indicative of a PE. Shortness of breath is the most common symptoms followed by

Complications include shock, fluid build up in the lining of the lungs, death of part of your
