This isn't about cancer, but couldn't find anywhere else that is close. So thought I'd try. My daughter is 19 & is having horrible chest pain & difficulty breathing. We've been to primary dr, ER, pulmonary (on our 2nd pulmonologist now), infectious disease Dr (she was in Uganda & Haiti earlier this year), had CT scans, checked for blood clot, chest xrays, a myriad of blood work, asthma tests, waiting on Echo to come back & now a methacholine challenge test next week. But the fact remains that NO ONE can figure this out. I'm trying this board to hopefully get some ideas. I don't even know where to take her. She seems to respond negatively (throat swelling, etc) to any of the nebulizer meds. She's on an inhaler now, but doesn't do much. I'm just a desperate mom, tired of seeing her baby not be able to do ANYTHING. Prior to this, she was active & vibrant & now she can't even go to the store. I'm wondering if she picked something up when she went to the other countries, but also had a bunch of liver pain when she returned & was checked extensively for that. Nothing was found. Please help!View Thread
