I have been having chest pain and i went to the ER 2 days ago. My d-dimer was high, so they suspected a lung clot.
I had an xray and ECG, both were fine, so i was dismissed. I went to the hospital yesterday because it was getting worse, so they did a Pulmonary Ventilation perfusion Scan.
they had me breathe in a radioactive gas, and they injected me with a radioactive dye. i immediately felt a sharp pain in my left lung and a burning sensation in my stomach, the radiologist said i was just being anxious.
three hours later my results came out and they said my lungs looked fine. However, ever since the test, i have been wheezing when coughing, and i can feel the wheezing in my left lung.
I woke up today wheezing when i exhale and cough. I dont want to go back to the hospital if i am just being paranoid but im also worried. I have been feeling impending doom the last few days and i dont know what to do.
