I have chest, back (and shoulder) pain, usually right side from just before my period and ovulation time. Around period I get breathing problem too. I get breathless even in bed and have to sit up. Yesterday evening I had really bad pain in my higher back and I had to sit down on the floor and if I breath I got pain in my chest and it was really awful. It was a couple minutes I think but that was the one of the worst chest pain recently. The dull pain is still there and I sometime get shooting pain. Yesterday was one of my heavy bleeding day of period.
I have told this chest problem to GP but he wants my Gyne consultant to deal with it and he wants me to wait until next appointment which is in the end of February. I will have two more periods by then. This chest pain has been going on for months and I had a lap in October and my GP has written that I have chest pain and asked to check diaphragm during the lap. I didn't see the consultant after the lap and only saw a doctor who was one of his team who wasn't in the lap and she was telling me the result from the paper. Nothing was mentioned about diaphragm so I don't know if they have checked and didn't find endo there or they didn't check diaphragm at all.
My GP believes this chest pain is related to do with my period / endo so he wants to leave with my gyne consultant. He wouldn't consider anything else. I did say it happens during period which was stupid of me but it was true.
Are there any other problem(disease) which gets chest/back pain with period apart from endo? Should I have my lung checked out soon or I could wait until February appointment? My breathing usually get better completely by the time my period finish, sometime breathlessness doesn't go away and it ringers and get worse at ovulation. Should I go back to the GP and report that horrendous yesterday chest pain?
My GP told me to check if my lung is collapsed or not, I have to have a X-ray when I have chest symptom during my period. By the time I get an appointment on Monday, my bad days are probably over and if they managed to give me X-ray it may be too late this time.
