Re: Should I stop pursuing?
The xray and CT were negative. I have stopped smoking and after the initial symptoms I described I now am experiencing regular light cough, heavy chest feeling, and shortness of breath. It seems to me either symptoms of smoking cessation or some obstructive airway disease. The back, rib/chest pain has taken a back seat and now don't even seem to exist. It's crazy how symptoms morph and change and how sometimes you wonder if things are all in your head. Unfortunately I can't say my symptoms now are in my head as the cough and shortness of breath are very real. I hope it is smoking cessation related and not something permanent. Thanks for your responses.
