I am relatively new to this community, and I have a couple of questions, I have a doctors appointment later this afternoon. I should mention i am almost 20 years old.
For just over three weeks now I have had this cough that has been getting progressively worse I am at the point where I cannot breath when I am coughing, and I am gasping for breath when I do so. I cough up very thick mucus that is also making it hard for me to breath. When I'm coughing, I get sharp pains in my chest and back which are very uncomfortable.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have been exhausted as well. As I usually go to bed around midnight and wake up at 8 am I have been becoming tired at 7/8pm and having to go to sleep at that time. This has become very unusual as I have never become tired early in the afternoon.
My nan passed away from Lung Cancer in 2013 due to smoking. However, I do not smoke due to my nan passing I do not agree with it. Therefore I am not sure how I would get lung cancer (i am not saying) However, I have been showing symptoms of lung cancer and so I have grown suspicious that this could be the case.
