  • What's your PE chest pain/pain in general like?

    I was just wondering what your pain is like if you have any. Is all chest pain worse when breathing or does it just happen isolated? Does your pain radiate anywhere? I'm also curious to see what your breathing/daily life was like before diagnosis. Thanks guys!
