Because I was feeling really unwell, I made an appointment to see a GP at my surgery yesterday.
She found that I had an infection in my lung and prescribed antibiotics.
In addition to the breathlessness I had been experiencing I also had pain in my midriff and pain when taking a breath. No doubt the pain when breathing in was due to the infection but I am at a loss to know why there was (and still is) pain in my midriff. It is very painful when I cough.
Is this, do you think, something akin to COPD? I would welcome your comments.
