Hi all, I'm 38 and quit smoking 4 years ago... whilst never a heavy smoker (average 30 to 40 a week) my dad smoked all of my life. About 10 years ago I had pneumonia so really cut down and was lucky enough to make a full recovery. 5 years ago I had most of my left kidney removed due to an unknown birth defect. In April this year we moved house and where let down last minute by the removal company so my 18 year old son and I with a little help from my Poorly backed husband,moved house. My husband is a bobby and was assaulted at work and is left with life long spinal problems. Anyway, shortly after that my chest pain started, after an infuriating visit to the GP 3 weeks later I got the diagnosis of costochrondritis that has never left just seemed to migrate across and now is worse than ever. I revisited a differed gp who ran bloods (I'm vitamin D deficant) and ordered an X-ray... this showed shadows on my lung so on Monday I'm having a ct scan.... can anybody relate? Can anyone tell me if they are all linked? At first I thought my little left kidney wasn't absorbing vit D but now I'm so confused and very scared.... any thoughts just to talk through gratefully accepted! Thanks for haveing the patience to read this far!
