Could it be?

I am 32 and have smoked on and off for 15 years. I have had terriable upper back pain for a few years and it is all in my rib area. I don't have a cough but i do clear my throat alot. I feel like sometimes I can't get a good breath, and my heart will pound very very fast. I have had many test's like a complete bone scan 3 years ago and I have had many blood tests, abdominal ultrasound and CT as well as mnay chest x-rays and the doc keeps telling me that I have very clear lungs. Should I fel confident in that and quit before I don't have clear lungs....I am scared as I do have 6 children...Please answear....

Re: Could it be?

Just a suggestion but maybe another doctors opinion and maybe with the chest pounding as hard as you say you might talk to a cardiologist

Thoughts are with you
