It's ages since I've posted on here but had a bit of a scare today. Feeling very tired and breathless so had appointment with GP. Sent me straight to hospital for chest X-ray and blood tests and was told to call for X-ray results in a week to ten days. I hadn't been home long when GP rang to say she'd been contacted by hospital because X-ray showed a shadow at the bottom of my left lung. Have been given high dose amoxycillin in case of infection and appointment back at GP on Monday morning. Also booked in for ECG next Wednesday.
Last lung function tests and ECG were OK about 10 months ago and not seeing rheumy until October.
My other half is very worried which has upset me because I don't tend to worry unless I'm told to!
Anyone else had something like this? Can it be simple infection or need I worry it's something more sinister?
Like everyone else on here I cope with the every day worsening of Raynaud's and Scleroderma problems and my thought is that I wouldn't have been given this prescription if GP thought it was something nasty.
Any ideas please? Just a chat would be a comfort
Thanks for reading
