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 ?

  • It could be a lung problem but best to get checked over today just to be sure. Do let us know how things go for you. Xxxxx

  • 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

  • Best to go and see your GP just to put your mind at ease. Let us know how you get on 😊 xxx

  • Just out after seeing doctor. He said it sounds like I have pluercy. Given a/b and co-codamol for the pain. To go back if it gets worse x

  • Hope the meds work CC - crossing fingers for you :)

  • 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.

  • Hope the meds give you immediate relief & that it clears up soon.

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