I am 37 years old female. For the last two months I have been having chest pains and back pains every day, and it seems to be getting worse. I also have difficulty breathing deeply, and I am feeling a heavy sensation and constriction in my chest, especially when standing up.
I had a chest x-ray, blood work, and pulmonary function tests done, all normal.
I quit smoking around the same time that this began. My mother died of lung cancer three years ago, and I am obsessed about getting it. I even think that the x-ray is probably wrong. My doctor thinks it's all anxiety.
Anybody gone through this? Anybody had a false negative x-ray out there?
