I am sorry to hear about your problem. Did you have a chest x-ray for the chest infection or bronchial infection.
If it was not done, it will be a good idea to get one done as soon as possible and have it read by someone experience with Chest x-ray. One need to make sure if the cause for the chest pain and sweating is not due to persistent infection or some other pathology before you presume that it is due to hormonal changes. Kindly get yourself checked out by a chest doctor. Hope this helps
