have you reached menopause?
I guess. I stopped having periods about 3 years ago but never went thru what everyone else does, night sweets, hot flashes. Never noticed anything different.
are you taking any medicines?
since how long you have this pain?
Since last Monday
thanks for the information
it could be a plueritic pain considering history of smoking and difficulty breathing which aggravate the pain
can be a neuropathic pain
Don't know what that means
a membrane cover the lung and its inflammation can cause pain
neuropathic pain is a pain due to nerve compression or nerve injury
They said the X-ray showed my lungs look good
in pleuritis x-ray can be normal
So what should I do now?
you should discuss this possibility with your physician and if agree to this can advise you treatment for this
You mean there is something I can do besides go back to the Dr ?
have your doctor given you any medicine after getting normal x-ray and ecg?
then it is wise to revisit him as its been almost three days and the pain has not settled so as to get the proper treatment
OK, thank you
