I have had a bad chest ( can't get a deep breath, cough, sputum for 12 years with no diagnosis of COPD due to normal Spirometry. This year I had three chest infections. The last one was a bad one but cleared in two weeks or so. I had mucous plugging and chills. Foolishly I slugged it out and didn't go to my doc. I have a suspicion now maybe It may have been walking pneumonia. I did eventually get an antibiotic.
Anyway I have been having general chest discomfort, back pain that seems to be only on one side and a burning or irritated feeling in my lungs. They seem to wax and wane but are a constant feature of my life now.
As discussed here things have dis improved and now I have substantial nocturnal dyspena.
Anyone any thoughts, is this chest pain normal.
