I've had this condition for almost 3 years now. I've been tested and treated for constacondritus, pluricy, pnemonia, arthritus, a heart murmur, athsma, broken bones, gallbladder disease, liver function, pregnancy, pancreas disease, and depression. I've taken the aleve 'challenge' and after 3 years I feel no better, in fact I feel worse.
I've had my blood tested, I've had shots, and X-Rays. I've had more EEG's and EKG's then I can count. I've been told its all in my head or that its just an attempt for attention but its not. I've seen 13 different doctors working for 3 different hospitals and private practices.
I'm a very fit 20 year old female and I can no longer run and play with my 6 year old step son because I quickly succum to the worst pain ever. I have to stop for a break every few steps going up my stairs to my third floor apt.
Its a very upsetting situation if any of you can tell me whats going on or suggest something to tell a doctor (whome I've all but lost faith in) that would be excellent.
I dont know if yours is a lung pain but mine is more of a heart pain. It feels like my heart is filled with phlem but if i push on my chest plate it goes away. It happens more in attacks then constant pain.
I'm elated that I've found somewhere to tell my troubles
