Brief Answer:
Get done chest x ray.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Ask a doctor forum.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, we should definitely rule out lung infection in your case.
So get done chest x ray.
Please let me know if you are smoker.
Also let me know if you have fever.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

Thanks Dr. Bhavsar. I'm a former smoker who quit in the 80's. I had a fever briefly. I'm going to get a chest X-ray today. I do have a history of lung infections up to near pneumonia. Thanks for your time Doc.
