i am a 35 year old female, i became ill with respiratory issues back in june. my family health care provider referred me to a pulmonary specialist who preformed a bronchioscopy July 15. ever since the procedure was preformed i have had a sharp pain that feels like it is inside my right lung. the severity of the pain increases and decreases. it is worse when i take a deep breath or cough or move a certain way. the pain is always there but at time gets so intense im almost in tears. my dr. is at a loss and referred me to a pain management specialist. i never had pain until the bronchioscopy...does anyone have any ideas...
