Hello, i am a 21 year old male. Last September i was under the impression that i was having a heart attack so i went to the hospital. They ended up telling me that what i actually had was pluerisy. So i took Indocine for the inflamation (inflammation) for about 3 months and the same exact feeling continued to happen. So i ended up going to a lung specialist. He had the hospital transfer the xrays over to his office and after viewing them, he claims that i never even had lung inflamation (inflammation), but that i have an incision somewhere on my lung that can lead to lung failure. Now, almost a year later it has gotten even worse and when it gets real bad, my left shoulder/back/arm starts to ache, and sometimes it feels like there is liquid in the area of my heart and it feels a bit cold. I have quit smoking for a few months now and have no issue with breathing and my lungs seem to be doing fine. I do not believe that what i have is related to my lungs at all. I was just wondering if anybody has related symptoms and has any idea what is wrong with me, because i have been to over 8 different doctors/specialist and none of them have the same story.
