A 32-year-old female asked:

pulmonary embolism: if the post-pe part of lung develops new pain when breathing in deep, does it mean recurrence or pulled muscle?

If the surface: of the lung was involved in the embolism inflammation may have formed on the lining (Pleura) leading to a "pleuritic (breathing pain)(ie: "Pleurisy". Eventually this resolves (sometimes with a tiny effusion "water on the lung") Stay in contact with your Physician until this is resolved!! Hope this is helpful! Dr Z

Infection: You have an illness...Probably viral (because most illnesses are). Strep throat can also produce those symptoms. It is always a good choice to be seen when you feel so awful...If ears hurt too it could be an ear infection and having treatment choices is very helpful. Make an appointment to be seen.

May or may not: Gross blood in the urine with flank pain until proven otherwise can be a sign of kidney stones. Uti typically starts from the bladder and if left untreated can potentially travel to to the kidneys with serious consequences. Follow where the pain the starts. Stone starts from the back vs UTI from the bladder.
