my back hurts almost to the point of tears..the pain extends across the back (around the bra strap area) and ends in the right lung area. my dr. rx'ed me somas,because i have a smokers cough and he thinks it might be spasms, but, somas don't work..pain still there. no x-ray as yet..plz, what could this be?
Without further testing if is difficult to say what could be causing your right lung pain for 2 months. A chest x-ray would be the next step. Assuming that your smokers cough means that you are smoking, now would be a good time to quit. You may want to look at our Quit Smoking Topic Center at http://www.nationaljewish.org/topic/smoking_cessation.html for ways to help you to quit smoking. Also check with your doctor for other quit smoking resources in your area.
