Sorry to bother you guys again but, for a few weeks now, since coming back from a trip from my Aunt's house, I've been feeling this werid chest discomfort on my left side upper area, abit above the heart I believe.
During my week trip to my Aunts house, I wasn't able to take my thyroid meds on time, as well as my iron and Vitamin D pills. We were always on the run and I would sometimes forget to take my Vitamin D or iron pills at all. But I did make sure I took my thyroid meds, and blood thinners each day for certian.
Also during that time I had accidently over pulled my lung muscle while reaching for my backpack and had inflammed the lower left lung wall very very bad a.k.a pleurisy. I was in bad pain for about two-three days. But it wasn't the first time I had pleurisy, I had it once or twice before. But that was like a month or so ago and don't really feel any inflammation anymore.
But since I've noticed that strange discomfort on the upper left side. It's not painful, but bothersome. It's kinda like a werid slight dull pullng senation I guess. It doesn't hurt when I breath or anything. When I went in for my Holistic doctor appointment, I told her about it. She listened to my chest, and felt on it, and said it was probably just a muscle thing, probably from the pluerisy.
I don't know if she's right or not. I'm getting kinda worried cause it hasn't gone away for like weeks now. Have any of you guys ever felt this sensation? Just want to make sure it's nothing serious, but at the same time I don't want them to just throw me under another C.T. scan and be exposed to extra radiation, which my body has had enough xrays, and C.T. scans on and off for like two years and then the radioactive Iodine. Also want to make sure it's not a side effect of natural thyroid meds, or just part of having hypothyroidism?
