I had a PE about 10 years ago.  It was a scary experience.  I'll tell you from my episode the leg pain would be excruciating, like the worst cramp you'd ever have.  Shortness of breath would be an understatement, I was gasping for air.  Its probably just anxiety.  Panic attacks do mimic a PE so I get the worry.  If you have insurance just go to a minute clinic and they can check your pulse oximitry.  Lower than normal O2 can indicate a PE.
