chaz50, the weight gain has started a few years ago. coz i was overeating. Now, i can say that i am eating, but not normally. Sometimes just enuff, sometimes slightly more. Chaz50, you are saying that my symptoms are not of lung cancer?? i am having difficulty taking deep breath. My left rib has been aching. In the centre of the sternum, i am having discomfort.always need to move my chest in order to loosen it up and feel better. last 3 days my throat again started to become sore. started to have cough from yesterday. I notice that my nose these few days gets blocked easily, makes it even difficult to breath. Especially when i sleep, the mucus is like flowing to my throat, makes it itchy and forcing me to cough. I just had cough last month for 14 days from the 2/11/08. Yesterday, i was sweating at night. i also have tightness at my chest.Both my arms were numb and had this pin-needle feeling. i can feel that my heart was beating hard like last time on the 25/10/08 minus the chest pains. I did my ct scan and xray, came out clear. If i would have cancer or any other lung decease it can be seen right? Chaz50, pls read carefully all my post again, and let me know what are the symptoms of cancer and those which are not in that category. Pls help me chaz50, i need info. Pls do this for me. god bless you. i am really in need of help.
i started to have sore throat and cough a few days ago. Not mistaken it should be about 3 days. i think it is dry cough though, but it is not like i am coughing every minute. I cough more at night i think. i hope this is not the start of lung cancer. Yes i am very scared and worried. i am full of anxiety, but if i don't have these symptoms, who would be worried? i've got no one to talk to. My gf's breaking up with me. I feel weak. my bad breath has been slightly worse. guys, talk to me. need all the help,advice,support,info that i can get to ease my anxiety. pls help me.
If it is not lung cancer, what other probable lung desease that tally with my symptoms? My nose gets congested a lot. Suddenly lots of flam and mucuos. These happened in the past week. When my nose is not congested, when i breath in, i still feel that my chest is a bit tight, it is like not enuff air that is going into the lung. When i exercise i feel great. breathing is good. So what respiratory problem am i having?
hello, somebody pls reply. i am feeling not well. hence, mentally too. My stress test came out ok, but my lung function test is not. now i am so scared that i will get lung cancer. could this be the beginning of it or am i worrying too much?? as i exercise, i noticed that i am getting tired faster. i am not sure whether it is pschology or my breathing is getting bad to worse. anyways to improve my breathing? and supplements to take?
i think people arnt answering you because you dont ever take advice and see a doctor about your anxiety. once you have sorted out the anxiety then you will probably see a change in your physical symptoms.
it is not anxiety only. it is bcoz of what i am feeling hence i feel stressed. for instance, everynight i sleep well, then when it comes to early mornings, maybe 5am, i start to feel discomfort in my chest, and then i can't sleep.i usually sleep at about 12am to 1 am.
yesterday, when i was out with my family, as i was laughing, talking, suddenly feel tired. then i just stopped talking. all this can't be anxiety. what else can i say? basically i am recording here my encounters, so that if i am diagnosed with lung cancer, then you guys will know how it started!!
i am having pains at my upper back at my shoulder blades. Are these pains due to cessation in smoking, or is it a symptom of lung cancer, or is it a symptom of a respiratory problem? guys' i am really losing hope. feel very scared and guilty. i am trying to be positive but my body condition is not really good. i slept well from 12am and wake up at 5 am. Again, felt the chest discomfort. There are no more chest pains. When i take normal breath, there is no pain. however when i take a deep breath feel like there is a strain at my upper back. All this don't look like the beginning of lung cancer?? somebody pls talk to me.
i don;t believe this. i have a black dot on my toungue. is this cancer or something. tried to brush it off, it didn't go off. it is attached to my toungue. Then i took the toothpick, to try and take it off. after trying, the black dot came off and there is blood on my toungue. what growth is this?? gosh, i am freaking out, more and more problems.
Ok Heartbeat3, You sound alot like me only you are just verbalizing it here. ALOT of us have the same fears that you do. We really do! That is why we come to these healthboards. You have got to calm down. Catch your breath. You have yourself worked up into a frenzy. I spent half of my day here reading the boards because I have had phlegm in my throat and feel like I can't get a full breath in. Then it sends me into a panic mode. I sit and think "what if I have lung cancer?" (and I am non smoker) or what if I have cancer of the throat? (and I am a singer) It drives me insane living in the "what if" thinking mode.
My husband said to me today that he thinks I need counseling for my panic and anxiety disorder. I agree and am going to find a counselor. I don't know what is causing my severe FEAR and anxiey. But I will be proactive about it and do something about it. Otherwise the fear and BODY SYMPTOMS will escalate. That could be happening to you. I understand your fears. Believe me I do!!! I live in that world too. I fear I am going to get lung cancer because I spent 8 years as a waitress exposed to second hand smoke. And I have gone into casino's and had smokers blow their smoke at me. One of my dear friends died years ago of lung cancer. He never smoked a day in his life. It's so unfair!
Anyhow..all this to say I am not a doctor but I would be willing to bet you have 2 things going on that are just like mine and you should seek help for. Do both!! One...find a counselor to help you deal with your fears and anxiety. and Two...I bet you have acid reflux. Which I do and have scheduled an endoscopy. (where they put a camera down my throat) I am scared to death. But I want to know whats going on. Unfortunately I think I have acid reflux from all the stress in my life. I am on the verge of losing my house due to the bad economy. I don't like my job and I am unhappy with my life right now. I have alot on my plate and my health is suffering. So I realize I NEED HELP!! I am going to get it.
Until you realize that you can't do this on your own you won't get much better. You may be spinning your wheels just coming on here and talking. I love having someone to talk to on here too. It helps me ALOT! But you have to do things on your own to fix the problem. See each doctor that you need to. But I can DEFINATELY tell you have major anxiety like me. Please get help. I know your symptoms give you the anxiety, me too. Big time. But get help for both.
I am here for you anytime you want to talk! Take care! Hugs and prayers
