I'm a quit from Malaysia since 8th March 2012. I was smoking about 20 a day and for about 8 years. I'm 27 this year.
I've gone through the sore throat which I read is about the cilia rebuilding. But I've been having this sharp pain on my right chest all the way to the back near my back bone. I would wake up from the pain in the middle of the night. I've consulted 2 respiratory speecialiist and 1 rheumatologist and all of them suspect it is just intercostal muscle inflammation, and have prescribed me with 120mg Etoricoxib, Voltaron, and Norsegic (basically pain killers with muscle relaxant and anti inflammatory elements).
This pain has been around for far too long, about 2months now. I previously thought it came from a chronic cough which is the main reason why I quit.
Has anyone of you gone through this? Any method to reduce or make the pain go away?
Thanks ahead of time
