Hi, I'm a newbie to this forum. I've been experiencing chest pain under my sturnam for 2-3 months now. 45 years old, non-smoker, always been healthy as a mule. When I visited my internal med doctor a couple of months ago, he did blood work (all fine), an EKG (fine) and a chest x-ray (found nodules and infiltrates), then diagnosed me with walking neumonia (BTW, I haven't run a temperature), with a follow up x-ray in 1 month. The following month, 4 x-rays were taken, then I was scheduled for a CT scan of my chest. The diagnosis was granuloma. Meanwhile, my chest still hurts, my back hurts, and I have flutters along with cramps (tight feeling) in my right calf (for a couple of weeks now) and right arm from elbow to finger tips, with some occassional pain in my right armpit area. My finger tips feel numb and my finger joints are stiff. I have acquired a rash on my index and middle finger of both hands within the past week. Within the past year I have also noticed thinning of hair.

I don't know if all of this is tied together or not. Whether it is a B-12 deficiency, or a heart related condition. What do you think?

Thank you in advance for your help. :)
