Hi,
Thanks for query,
It seems that you might developed Pneumonitis causing all problem.
X ray taken initially may not reveal any pathology but now it may show.
Go for blood TC,DC,ESR,platelet count and X ray again.
Sweeling in your chest may be due to infection or costo chondritis.
Go for pelvic ultra sound to rule out any problem in your genital tract.
Consult physician and get clinically examined.
Ok and bye.

hello,
it seems to be respiratory infection. but you mentioned your chest is clear.its bit contradictory. some routine blood investigations required.better to consult a good medicine specialist.he will do general physical examination.you should get evaluated for that swelling in chest. you may need pelvic ultrasound examination. but first take antibiotics provided bu your doctor for respiratory infection. wish u good recovery.
