This Saturday I was seen in the emergency room for chest

Customer Question

This Saturday I was seen in the emergency room for chest pain of unknow cause. The pain worsened with inspiration, movements of any sort. The pain was predominantly on the left side but also radiated scross the entire chest wall, through the back, up my left shoulder, down my left arm , and up the left side of my neck. Tests were done and a ct angiogram to rule out a pulmonary embolus. Well the D-dimer was elevated triple fold, but negative Ct. My labs were normal except for, elevated WBC of 11.6 and blood in my urine, total protein was also a little elevated.
The ct though, revealed multiple bilateral axillary lymph nodes and a tine left lung nodule.
I got prescriptions for hydrocodone and mobic, which i haven't yet filled. I didn't sleep last night because of the pain, periodic shortness of breath and palpitations. The strange thing is, now I have this very uncomfortable sensation. It feels as if my entire abdominal cavity is air filled that extends to my chest wall and still hurts to breathe butbmuch better than Saturday. I am contemplating going back to the ER or waiting for a doctor's appointment.
Thank you.

My appetite is not the best

Thank you for all the information,

There can be an inflammation or infection.

The count is a bit elevated.

The feeling of gas can be from indigestion, reflux or acid peptic issues.

As the shortness of breath is less, you can try Zantac or nexium.

Gas X can be taken too.

If you do not feel better, I would suggest to taken an examination in ER.
I hope this information helps.
