Not sure I want to know


Recommended Posts

Female, 43 years old. I have been having issues since the start of the year and getting worse. I am exhausted, not just tired but like bone tired, constant dry cough, heavy chest at times, I have to take constant deep breaths, like I am never getting enough air, out of breath very easy (prob because I am fat and out of shape), collar bone pain, my collar bone has even pushed up sticking out, while the other side is flat, feel like my food gets caught in my throat while swallowing ( feels like a pill that gets stuck and you have to drink to get it down) and I may or may not have a swollen lymph node in my neck under my jaw ( I cant really tell). I have been a pack a day smoker for about 20 years.  No fever, no infections, no blood. I have an appointment with my doctor next Tuesday May 9th, but I am really dreading going, I really don't want to deal with it, but the only reason I am going is because I am tired of feeling like I do. Sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.  I high doubt I have lung cancer so it will prob just be a waste of time.  I am sure I will get to hear, stop smoking, lose weight, exercise. But go I shall. Thanks for letting me vent.

I second Susan's hope that you don't have lung cancer. It's a pain. And also her request that you keep us posted. I'm new here but as far as I know venting is allowed. Lol.

And I Third Susan & Judy's wish. But, do get to a doctor. Your collarbone pain and the way it is displaced suggests a possible fracture. People with broken collarbones also have difficulty breathing. 

Let us know about the outcome. 

Stay the course.
