I was diagnosed with Crohn's 20 years ago and since then have only had two flare ups, but in recent years I have had a lot of Crohn's additional symptoms, including blot clots in my lungs. I noticed on occassion over the last few years I was getting shortness of breathe and a weird pain in my chest. I had x-rays but nothing was found. Then last year I went to bed with the usual discomfort and woke up in a lot of pain and not being able to breathe properly. This got steadily worse so off to emergency. By the time I was in emergency I was in a lot of pain, and had a lot of problems breathing. The diagonised me with blot clots in my lungs. I have not family history of blood clots and since then I have found out that blood clots are on the list of crohn's issues. I dont seem to get the flare ups very often, but seem to get a lot of peripherial issues, which seem to be inflamation related.
