    Unhappy Bad Chest Pains for 6+ months

    Hi! sorry i didnt know where to post this but i feel like my doctors have given up on me and i just want help
    (im 18, female bodied, pretty healthy)
    so ive gotten bronchitis several times in the past year and a half and ever since the beginning of june this year ive had awful chest pains right under my ribcage where it feels like its burning and crackling and sometimes my ribs are collapsing and my pulmonologist and digestive specialist both just gave me some prescriptions and told me its asthma and acid reflux
    but i know my body and i know this isnt right and if it is then why arent any of the 7+ meds im on helping it???
    it started from being at my grannys house (she smokes) and accidentally wearing a too tight sports bra and from then its just been pain and diagnoses with costochondritis and all these other things
    i dont know how worth it it is to mention, but the only medicine thats actually stopped it for a bit was oxycodone (? i think? my dad gave it to me, leftover from my sisters surgery the month before)
    but especially the breathing has gotten worse for me, throughout this whole ordeal i havent been able to even go up or down the stairs without wheezing or walking and not being able to catch my breath

    sorry and thank you im just at my wits end and i really dont wanna end up in the ER, ive been told way too many times by my friends to go because of the pain but i have doctors that (were) working on it and what if they dont find anything????
