They found my PFO when I was in ICU back in November for pulmonary embolisms, they told me that I wouldn’t need my PFO closed unless I started having problems, (pulmonary embolisms were from IBD) when I went to the doctor in January he told me that some people get it closed to treat migraines? I never had an issue with migraines but am now having one almost every day. Also if it is closed does that mean I will no longer get pulmonary emboli? I go off blood thinners in about a week and am scared I am going to get more. Also what are other problems associated with PFO? I have flutters and sometimes my heart feels like it has a lot of pressure in it then it vibrates but other than that and the migraines I have no issues I don’t think! I’m also 20 yrs old if that has any significance to anything.
