Scared!
Mar 18, 2008
I am 36/M

For almost 2 months now I have this pain in my upper left chest area. I have the pain all the time, but sometimes it will get really painful.. I get winded alot when I do stuff. I went to the DR last week and he did a EKG it was normal. Sent me for Chest x-ray, c-spine...... I have a appointment for Friday to get all types of blood work and I am supposed to go back to the DR on the 26th and get a echocardiogram.

Well I got in to get the x-rays today and the woman ran out and got a DR whom told me that I needed to call my DR right away, because I have alot of fluid build up in my left lung. I asked him what this could be and he asked me if I have had a fever. I told him no. I have not been sick. He told me it could be a number of things from pneumonia to cancer!!!!

I have a appointment with my primary DR first thing thursday morning. I am going nuts wondering! Someone know what this could be? Or what I am about to go through? Thank you!
