I have a paralysis of long thoracic nerve (right arm) 25 years, winged scapula etc. Take 3600mg Neurontin daily. Had pneumonia in February, still not breathing well, sats of 92. Pleural thickening raised diaphragm, painful, tired, short of breath, partially collapsed lung. Have been told, all will sort itself, or my body will just adjust & get used as it has my thoracic nerve dying. Doc mentioned something beginning with Ac----- something, lungs are tight, I want to breathe in, but a nerve, maybe connected to the thoracic nerve is preventing me from filling my lungs. So much to take in, I am 45, I spent 6 years welding in shipyards, breathing lead fumes, zinc fumes, iron filings & have worked with asbestos. No blockage inside lung, been told, there is something stopping me breathing in. Any ideas what could be up with me?
