I am new to the board and really need your advice or help. I have been having some back problems which actually feels more like lung pain on my upper right side. It feels like the upper lobe of my lung is truly what's hurting. It's lasts a day or two then it goes away and then comes back again. I do get short of breath quite often even while still, but my shortness of breath has been happening since I was a kid. I was diagnosed with a heart murmur many years ago. I have never really had any major respiratory problems. I AM NOT A SMOKER AND NEVER HAVE BEEN. Has anyone had a patient or have had these type of symptoms before and what was the diagnosis. I plan on going to the doctor eventually, but I am obviously very scared of what they would say.
I would actually like to be able to start Nursing school before I am diagnosed with some dreadful lung disease.
Scared as heck......please help!
