My otherwise healthy, young(50) husband
experienced a TIA last Feb. He had been diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism 3 years earlier due to DVT in leg
s (origin unknown, he had none of the traditional risk factors, although he has had a history of knee problems from a soccer injury). No abnormal blood factors, slight sleep apnea (but not using a machine).
He is now taking aspirin , lipitor
Protonix(GERD). He is now beginning to complain about "heavy leg
s" and leg cramps
