Brief Answer:
No worries, AIDS far, Chest X ray, see Dr

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

It might be important to know if you have been taking your drugs regularly lately. In case you missed a few doses, and any environmental changes, the symptoms could get intensified as such. However, if no environmental change, nor any missed doses of your regular drugs have been recorded lately, it is imperative to search for the cause of such a pain.

Any recent notion of an upper respiratory tract infection might be important to be noted. Catarrh or any cough could be predisposing factors to develop a lung infection. Chest pain if associated with fever would be more suggestive of an infection.

Acute viral pericarditis, if you had an upper respiratory tract infection is also a rare possibility. The pain is more intense with a deep breathe too. However, your doctor will hear specific sounds on a physical examination.

I would suggest you get a consultation from your doctor and get a proper Chest X ray done.

You need not be afraid. HIV - AIDS does not commonly present with such acute symptoms. The symptoms you present are not the regular presenting signs and symptoms of AIDS. No worries.

Kind regards as I wish you the best of health.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
