Suggest treatment for cough, wheezing and lower chest pain

default
Posted on Mon, 8 Jun 2015 in Cancer
Question: Dear doctor,
I'm a 49 year old female.
It's been a few years. It started about 3 years ago. One morning when I woke and took my first deep breath in, my chest had one sound, as if the air I breathed in cleared up a sand that landed on the way of my breath. In time, the one sand became a few, and now it is an area. It used to be just that one deep breath in the morning then the rest of the whole day is fine.
Now it's whenever I lie down for a little while and take a deep breath. Sometimes in the morning I feel like to cough too, especially recently.
Also, last year one night (3am) my lower chest hurt so much and I coughed so much that I almost decided to go to the emergency room.
In the past few days, my throat feel a little pain.
During the day, I also feel some random pain in my left or right chest when I breath out. Sometimes I feel pain in the center of my chest right next to my left breast, sometimes the pain is under my left or right breast.
My family doctor has taken pictures a few times but couldn't see anything. She thinks I don't have any problem. Each time I was happy to hear that. But at the same time, I know my symptom is developing. Is there any doctor who know about this?
Thank you so much for your time!

I checked on this website. It seems there are a few people have the exact symptoms some posted 2011 some even 2006. So I'm not the only one. But nobody came back to give an answer. Hope that is not a bad sign. Here is the link to the site:

Brief Answer:
CT scan of chest with contrast

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I have gone through your history and the link to the site you have mentioned

I woud advise you to do a CT scan of chest with contrast and an echocardiography test to find the cause of your chest tightness

The above tests must be done to rule out any respiratory, malignant and cardiological cause for your symptoms
