I have pain related problems (could be Fibro or rheumatology) since 2007.I am also a Thyroid (hypo) since 2006.In last June I had severe rib pain while breathing, so visited PCP but no clue and he wasted more than 3 months time.
Then I visited Pulmonologist he ordered bunch of lab tesst and CT, Antibodies came +VE and found a patchy nodule of size 2.3 cm X 2.2 cm in left lower lobe lung and the diagnosis was pleurisy, Doctor ordered Levoflaxacin (Anti biotech) and after 6 weeks(Nov 6th, 2018) CT repeated, nodule size was 1 cm X 0.7 cm.
Again CT repeated after 3 months on 02/13/2019 and the nodule size is spiculated nodule 1 cm X0.9 cm, compare to 2nd CT, nodule size is increased by 0.2 cm in 3rd CT.
Current symptoms are back muscle pain, inflammation in the ribs and knee pain.
I am scaring.I have very small kids. Please advise what it is?
