hi, really looking for reassurance, it started with a pain round my left lung/rib area into my back up my shoulder and down my arm, i knew i hadn't hurt myself, then i was getting short of breath. My head started to feel strange like sharp pains now and again and feeling heavy and wierd and my eyesight was going funny. I headed upto the hospital were they done chest Xrays, The Dr said my ribs seemed inflamed (Costochondritis) but was nothing to worry about and sent me home. I then got a letter from my GP to go and see her about the chest Xray results. When the raidiographer looked at my Xray he seen a shadow and advised antibiotics which i have been on for 4days and feel no better. I have recieved my app for another chest Xray next week and am really anxious and worried that this is worse than Costochondritis :'(... would they know if it was lung cancer from the Xray? im at my wits end with worry
