Re: Unilateral Paralyzed Diaphragm--chances of bilateral?

Last night I had a severe pain in the left side diaphragm area. Feeling more out of breath today than usual.

Just wondering if anyone here had unilateral (one-side) diaphramatic paralysis that ended up becoming bilateral (both sides). Just wondering what the chances are of this happening.

Thanks!
