Back pain

Hi all.I have a question that I hope u kind peeps can help with before I see my doc for the past couple of days I have been feeling drained. Exhausted so much so I have been going to bed really early. Then yesterday I had the worst headache ever. So of to bed at 7.30 without eating anything. Then when I woke up this morning I had a pain on the right side of my back which is worse when I cough. Could this be a lung issue? I have mild/moderate copd and should I be getting seen right away to stop this getting worse ?

I'm sorry, but I don't know. I think it's probably best to discuss it with your doctor.

Hope you get some more helpful answers, and that you're feeling much better soon. 😊 XXX

Poor you, pleurisy pain is horrible, especially as you get it on every in-breath. The first time I had it, I was about 10, and I still remember how awful it was. Doctors usually prescribe an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen for the pain, but maybe you can't take those? Anyway I hope you feel a bit better soon. It sounds like you've caught it early, fingers crossed.

With feeling so tired, little appetite, and back pain, sounds like you may have an infection. You should see your doctor.
