Went to my general practioner doc a little over a week ago with some chest discomfort, not pains but more like pulled muscles.
I'm a 63 year old male, retired from the USAF and in reasonbly good health.
Have visited several web pages and in my humble opinion it seems that we don't have many of the classic symptons.
Just got back from a rather brisk four mile walk. Breathing seems to be somewhat labored but still not a big problem..
The biggest annoyance is the constant chest issue..Its a bit like a pressure that makes breathing somewhat of a chore..
Not sure how many viewers there are for this web site so will see if there are other responders..

  • my friends father has been diagnosed with the same for 3 yrs now have you been diagnosed by a docter as this is an uncurable disease of the lungs and can be very serious it can also lead to heart problems as the breathing puts the heart under alot of pressure,he is on alot of medication and most of the time he is on steriods you should join a counciling group so you can talk to people with the same diagnoses good luck.
