Thanks for posting query.

I saw your x-ray and report. Your x-ray report is absolutely normal. There is no signs of any infection, no broncho-vascular prominence and costophrenic angles are clear. So there does not seem to be any lungs ailments.

As you are of 38 years of age I would like to advise you to go for,
1, ECG,
2, S. Cholesterol,
3, Lipid profile.
4, Blood sugar,
5, Blood pressure record.

This will give some idea of having any cardiac ailment. Quit smoking if you smoke. Go for deep breathing exercise.

I hope, I have answered to your query to your satisfaction.
If you have further query or clarification, please ask.
I will be happy to answer.

Take care.
Dr. Ramesh Vachharajani
