So yesterday I was moving and grooving between meetings, stopping for lunch, more meetings, picking up an air conditioner order at PC Richard warehouse (they loaded in the car), rushing home to drop it off, back to work, food shopping.....crazy day.
When I stopped by my house to drop off the AC, I have a hand truck in my car that I use now to move heavy items. The AC was in my back seat, I simply slid it towards the door, tilted it but due to the size of the box and not wanting to scratch up my door, I had no choice but to lift it 1" and pull it out the car, then immediately set it to the floor and used the hand truck to wheel it into my kitchen.
While food shopping, I felt a "clenching" or "tightening" feeling on my left side, back and front areas. It wasn't intense but it felt like it could have been a muscle spasm, or that feeling when you get a muscle cramp and you need to stretch it out. Thing is, I've been involved in the bodybuilding/fitness field for years and I know what a muscle cramp/soreness feels like. This felt "internal". I flexed my chest and back muscles and it didn't bother me at all. It's only when I rotated my shoulder front or back, or if I breathed in deep.
This feeling is gone now, with the exception of the slight pain I still feel when I breathe in deep in my back. My PCP thinks it's muscular/skeletal. He may be right because my sleep position is awkward and I think I have a pinched nerve that needs to be adjusted. But the feeling I have when I breathe deep....it doesn't feel muscular, it feels "deeper inside" as if in my lungs.
I went to see a pulmonologist on Tuesday, he gave me a "breathing test" (not sure what it's called). So my lung capacity is excellent, my blood oxygen level was slightly low but not to cause concern, and something else he said was excellent. So why the chest pain when I breathe? He had me get a chest xray done last night, results are in I'm waiting on his call for the results although he may just tell me let's discuss on our follow up meeting Monday afternoon.
I'm hoping it's not all tied in with my TAA (4.6)......scary feeling last night, if it is/was muscular, I hope that's what it was although it makes me feel older than I am What I used to be able to do, and where I am today......sigh have no choice but to accept aging and changes in life
