About a year ago I started having chest pain and gradually turned into breathing difficulties as well. I have seen several doctors for this.Usually the pain is the worst when I am walking, or doing any kind of excersise. I will also get shortness of breath. When I first wake up in the morning there is sharp pain in my chest, and it is sometimes difficult to breath. Also I will have some pain in my right side and stomach first thing in the morning. My doctor hasnt told me what is wrong, just that this is probably going to be a long term thing. I had a chest x-ray done, spinal cat scan I think, and another x-ray I cant remember. All showed nothing wrong. Right now I am on two different inhalers. Azmacort to help prevent my chest pain/breathing problems and another kind of inhaler to help get rid of the pain when it happens. Which is mainly when I start doing a lot of work or excersising. I think this may have happened from a chemical I use to use at my old job but I really have no idea what this could be.
