My husband (normally very healthy) became ill this past winter. He went to a clinic after 4 days and was diagnosed with influenza b, given an inhaler and a breathing treatment and sent home. The next day he was having chest pain with each breath and went to the ER. They did an EKG and a chest x-ray with supposedly negative results. The diagnosis was costochondritis. They gave him another breathing treatment and some vicodin and sent him home. Twelve hours later he was back at the ER with chest pain and kidney pain. He was then diagnosed as having pneumonia in both lungs and was in septic shock. He died a day and a half later. Is this normal? Seems to me costochondritis was a misdiagnosis.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
