Hello all, hope you are as well as can be.
I have recently noticed that I sometimes get chest pains (well, not central chest but more ribs, around 4th/5th intercostal-ish) that are fairly sharp and stabbing when I have a particularly bad attack. I don't have any cardiac history and the pain is never central/left sided/left arm/jaw, but generally around my ribs and back where my lungs are. Does anyone else experience this, or should it give me cause for concern? The pain subsides when the attack does and doesn't hurt afterwards, and has never been severe enough to warrant medical attention but is more confusing than anything!
A second new and confusing symptom I seem to have developed is that of having problems with my vision during a severe attack (i.e. an attack that doesn't seem to respond to nebs at home and so I have to ""go in""), whereby my eyesight goes ""a bit dim"" and blurry or with double vision. I haven't mentioned this to my cons yet as it has only just started happening but I have had a couple pretty bad attacks in the past week and the dodgy vision thing has happened twice - does anyone else experience this? Or can come up with any rationale as to what might be happening?
I realise we aren't allowed to give medical advice, and neither of these issues seem to warrant medical attention, but I am just interested to know if others out there experience similar things, or whether I am losing the plot!
Hope this post makes sense, chest not happy today and the sun is beckoning...
Thanks in advance
