There are many causes for water being filled in right side of chest. It can be due to infection like TB, kidney failure, liver failure, anemia or even due to lack of proteins. So better ask the doc like what it is due to and then you can get an idea.

My cousin had to go to the hospital everyday when she was pregnant to get her lungs drained. It was really hard for her to catch her breath. It started slow then got worse and worse. After a trillion tests the docs finally figured that her melanoma had come back and was taking over all her organs. Not to freak out. Just maybe suggest to get more tests done. Her lungs shouldnt fill ever. I would make sure that you get her to another doc for at least a second opinion. My cousin passed away a few days after giving birth at 6 months. Please do everything in your power. Dont go to U of M ann arbor either.Good luck

Hi monika

kidney disease specially nephrotic syndromes lead to urinary loss of protein thereby causing their decreased level in the blood often termed hypoproteinemia. this low level of protein can't hold water inside the blood vessels and lead to capillary leak of water, so is the symptom of facila puffiness, leg swelling fluid in chest i.e pleural effusion.

once the kidney returns to normal functions it will be automatically get may need fluid tapping once it is too much to disturb lung expansion causing breathlessness.

don't worry

best wishes

Hello Doctor,I am suffering from chest pain on the right, when I am taking deep breath or while coughing. I have been trying lot of antibiotics, paracetamol and cough syrup. Cough syrup gives me some relief but after 1hr or 2hr I still cough and chest pain is getting even worse. Ibuprofen, viks steam vapors give me little relief with the chest pain. This initially started with cold and cough. I am suffering from 4 weeks and still have cold, cough and chest pain. Other than this I dont have fever or head ache, I feel alright and I can do daily jobs normally. Could you please suggest what should I do. I talked to my GP and he is suggesting new antibiotics every time I meet him. I have tried, Amoxicillin 250mg (1 week), Doxycycline 100mg (1 week) and Keflex 500mg (1 week).Thank you

I am a 47 year old diabetic lady, who had a Gastric Band fitted three years ago, and lost 6 stones. Before having this procedure, I had slightly raised cholesterol, but not high enough for medication. Over the last three years my Total Cholesterol level has gradually increased from 5.4 to now 7.1 My Bad cholestrol is very high, but my good cholesterol is VERY good, I don t have the exact figures. My Dr put me on Simvastatin approx three years ago. I took them willingly, and carried on my life as best I could, not realising how tiered and exhausted they made me feel with lots of aches and pains, I thought my problems where early menopause. Anyway last year after much research on the internet, I discovered that statins could give bad side affect in concentration and tiredness and muscle weakness, so I decided to address this with my Dr. Who instead of listening, gave me another tablet to take on top of the statins, because my cholesterol had started to rise again. (Sorry don t have the name of this one) I took these for a month, and they made me almost incapable of getting out of bed, the tiredness was so debilitating. I decided to stop taking them, and the Simvastatins. So I gradually weaned myself off of the drugs. I had decided not to tell the Dr, so I did it on my own. Anyway, when I went back to the Dr about something else a few months later, I told them what I had done, they strongly advised me to take another type of Statin. This time Atrovastatin 10mg was to be taken. I said I would but if they made me feel bad, I would stop them straight away. I took them for 10 days and started to get all the same side effects so just stopped, and the Dr could not persuade me to re take them. Then this year I have had a cholesterol test, and I am now showing a total of 7.1 When they told me how high it was, I said I didn’t care, because Id rather die tomorrow, than spend any more time taking these drugs. Anyhow they persuaded me to have one more try, and have given me Fluvastatin 20mg. That was nearly a month ago, and I haven’t talked myself into starting to take them yet, but would just like some general advice about High Cholesterol. Does high cholesterol mean that I’m going to have a heart attack or does it just mean I might? I do have heart problems in my family, my mother died at 48 of a massive stroke, but she was very over weight, and my father has just been prescribed Simvastins, for his high cholesterol, and he like me now, is a very slight man, he is 74 years old, and has developed Altzimers. He has also started to complain about tiredness and weakness ( possibly the same side effects as me). He does not eat a lot of high fat foods, and often forgetting to eat at all unless it is put infront of him. Can cholesterol really be inherited? What can I do? I live in the Mediterranean most of the time, so I feel my life style is very healthy. I eat plenty of fruit and veg, I drink moderately and do not smoke. We cant get takeaway food here, so nearly everything is prepared from scratch. My only vice is butter, and that is only when I m worrying about all this. Is there any alternatives to Statins, I did read something about a dialysis machine for cholesterol? But that was a long time ago, and was in the early stage of development. Should I try these next ones, or just forget it and see what happens. I like my life now, When I was on the Simvastatins, I felt I had no life at all, almost like I was taking part in someone else s life, not quite mine. I don t want to go back to feeling like that. Please help....

I had a legion on my face and after a month it began to cause me chest pain that increased as the sore grew. I was concerned about the chest pain and its size so i went to a clinic. i thought it was a spider bite. he said it clearly wasn t so gave me an ointment for acne. he told me the sore had absolutely nothing to do with my chest pain. I took the ointment for 3 weeks and the chest pain and sore grew. By then i knew it was causing me pain the got more severe. I went to the hospital 3 weeks later and he also told my it wasn t causing chest pain. he gave me a antibiotic for infection and when i was a week into the bottle a pain ripped through my chest which didn t last just one second, but about 3 or 4. When it happened i thought i was having a heart attack. i went home and lanced it myself, which they didn t offer to do. it grew outward in a circle and was slightly smaller than a quarter. not far above the skin, it grew deep into my cheek. it took a week to fight the infection out. the pain subsided from a 8 and some intense 10 to about a 3 with occasional 10 stabbings. its comes and goes throughout the day. I didn t get blood test for the sore from either doctor. now the sore is gone but over the past 2 years ive been to the doctor for my chest pain and they have taken blood samples related to checking my heart. i havent told them about that infection because those first 2 doctors said the sore wasn t causing the pain, but how would they know since they never took a blood test. i know it caused the pain then and the aftermath now. Should i tell the heart doctor about the infection? Will he shrug me off like the other 2? and is it possible the infection is still there or gone but damaged something? what was the infection?
