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 was in a car accident like 2 months ago, broke a few bones, had surgery(hip and femur)a month later i began feeling left chest pains, left arm pains...typical heart attack symptoms in other words. last night was the 5th time i went to the e.r. thanks to this pains and again they found nothing wrong with me or my heart so i guess the ekg and mri were all good. the pain is still there on a daily basis my parents refuse to take me to the hospital they think i m insane. my questions are can my heart be bruised or enlarged?or that would have been ruled out with the ekg and mri?they said its not my lungs but the pain is on left back also, could it be only muscle pain?i don t have insurance and all this medical assistance is pretty expensive. if anyone could please get me on the right direction i would greatly appreciate it, this pain is so stressing it feels like a tickle on my lung or heart and i m scared if overlooked it will kill me. by the way i m a 19 yr old grl and nobody in my family has any kind of medical problems....
