In brief: ?Pulmonary embolism

I strongly recommend that you see a doctor as a matter of urgency in order to exclude pulmonary embolism. The history of flying makes it imperative to check for this.
A blood test called a D-dimmer can be done as a screening test for this. If this comes back positive, further investigations will be needed.
