Beginning in early october i had chest wall soreness and a very noticeable wheezing or vibrating sensation in my lungs, almost like cobwebs Im breathing through. I went to the ER thinking it may be bloodclot, but was diagnosed with bronchitis. After antibiotics the soreness went away within a week, but the wheeze like vibration persisted. It makes me want to cough, but I have no actual cough and i rarely manage to hack up congestion. Since then ive had windows of pain and soreness again for a few days, like a flare up of bronchitis, maybe 3 times in the last 3 1/2 months.
But the silent wheeze almost never goes away more than a day or two. It sometimes drives me insane from the tiny but very intense vibration even the most tiny inhale or exhale produces, like a tickle. I've had soreness in the shoulderblade and keep pulling a muscle as well over my right kidney area, and a localized pain in the upper right lung area, which I wonder if it's all connected. I take a medication that has given me edema in the ankles for almost 3 years straight now, and I am beginning to fear this may be cardiac asthma which is giving me bronchitis every once in a while. I am about to see my doctor in a week or two but I have anxiety and panic disorder and I've barely been able to sleep because of it lately. I worry about tumors or heart failure all day and all night. The strangest thing is when I pull the muscle over my kidney area I sometimes feel like the wheezing extends down into that area, which makes me wonder if it's like a muscle spasm. But i feel a super sticky and thin viscous mucus every once in a while I manage to loosen. I hope it's just some odd virus or maybe pleurisy. I had an abscess/boil like growth on my rib cage about 4 months ago that drained and left a tiny hole around this area I sometimes wonder if it got an infection in my lung/chest wall from.
