Saw pulmony specialist about lungs i.e. caugh and shorness of breath. Told him about diaphram pressing into lung area. He is at a loss... I looked again at my x-ray reports. One noted diaphram elevation on one side with cuffing. Mentioned also two variables that promote shortness of breath: exertion and eating. Eating causes diaphram to rise and push on region just below lungs. The area become tight as a band. It eases an hour or so after digestion. I am on my own. Need information about the diaphram area. X-ray also showed tortuous aorta. What is going on??? Who do I see, since lung doc can't explain it. He does feel however that lung infiltrate is stemming from reflux....
