Good Morning and welcome to HealingWell.  I suspect you are referring to  Factor V Leinden.
Factor V Leiden  is a common inherited genetic disorder that can increase your chance of developing abnormal blood clots usually in your veins. This was your dx 2 1/2 year ago. 
If you have factor V Leiden and have developed blood clots, medications can lessen your risk of developing additional blood clots and help you avoid potentially serious complications. Are you on any medications now?
I would kindly suggest you make an appointment and see your physician even if you do not have insurance as it is always cheaper to go to the clinic rather than going to the ER. 
I am sorry to hear of the death of your Father at such a young age.  Did your Father have a confirmed dx of Factor V Leiden disorder?
You have my support and please know I understand your fears and anxiety.
