Hi, I ve had a pain in my chest for the last 3 days now, it s the left hand side of my chest and feels like an internal pain, as opposed to a muscle strain or pectoral damage. It hurts slightly more when I take a deep breath, but I can t exactly locate the pain as I can t feel where it is with my hands. It hurts more when I wake up in the morning and when I am in specific positions, but I can t figure out what it is. I haven t over-exerted myself recently and haven t damaged my chest with impact recently. I am a regular smoker, but haven t had this pain before. I m a 28 year old male, slim build and fairly fit, 6 1 and roughly 13 stone. Can you suggest anything as to what this could be? Thanks Chris

I am constantly smelling smoke, or what to me smells like second hand smoke. At home, in my car, in the gym, everywhere. I do not smoke and do not live with any smoker. I am 55 yrs old and am very active and healthy. It is so bothersome I have put vicks vapor under my nose or scented cream. The smell can be over powered by other scents. Should I be concerned? My only other recent symptom change is swelling just above my collarbone on both sides. Feels soft and fluid but not painful. Alice

i Had been a casual marijuana smoker for about a month and then i had given up for about 3 weeks but last night i had a minor amount mixed with tobacco, i have a blood and urine test in roughly 4-5 weeks and wondering if it will still be detected and if it is will it be enough to claim as passive smoking? also does drinking more water help flush the THC out of the system?
