Im sure its not the nerves in my ribs, its the lung. Its been there for over 2 weeks now, and not getting better. I am a heavy smoker for 8 yrs, but I quit about 2 weeks ago. I'm 23, male.
call your dr. right now. or go to the ER. your symptoms are alarming. the way you describe your symptoms makes me think heart attack, except that you are so young. anyway, this needs to be evaluated ASAP.
symptoms of a heart attack may include:
"Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck or arms. The pain may be mild to intense. It may feel like pressure, tightness, burning, or heavy weight. It may be located in the chest, upper abdomen, neck, jaw, or inside the arms or shoulders."
"Not all of these signs occur in every attack. Sometimes they go away and return. If some occur, get help fast."
sorry, i hope i'm not overreacting but a co-worker of mine had similar symptoms a few years ago and did have a heart attack. i could be wrong but go get it checked out, anyway.
