I'm having a bit of a meltdown at the moment and don't really know what to do. I went to GP over a year ago with breathlessness and chest tightness. As I'm overweight it was put down to possible heart trouble and I was sent for a scan and then an angiogram. This showed, while there was a slight build up in one artery, my heart was fine. The symptoms were never looked into further or explained. I was sent for a chest x-ray on Monday (now Thursday) and though the radiographer never told me anything, I saw his face when he checked the scan and I know it's not good. Since then I have tried to convince myself it might not be lung cancer but it's not working, especially as I have had shoulder pain for ages too. It's only been four days since the x-ray and I'm tearing my hair out, everytime I think about it (which is pretty much all of the time) I start to get panic attacks. My husband keeps saying it can't be that bad or I would have heard by now, but I know it takes time whatever the result is.
