I was sitting in a meeting yesterday, no physical strain, took a breath and felt a sudden sharp pain in my right upper body as my lung inflated - hoping it was just a temporary growing pain I took my next few breaths but it prolonged. After a few minutes of discreet un-comfort I went for a walk around outside but the pain got worse and spread to the top of my arm and my breaths were reduced to about 25% of normal. I drove straight home went to the A&E, during my drive back the pain seemed to ease and breathing became easier although I was worried. The doctor i saw could not explain why it had come about suddenly, and made the assumption that i had a pulled a muscle and gave me strong pain killers - but as i said before i was sitting still, no physical strain in a meeting. Could this be something more serious? Today, i feel like I’ve been hit very hard in the right upper body with something and my back shoulder blade feels saw too. I also have a constant tingling sensation in my left lower arm / hand which has been irritable for the last few hours, and a light tingle in my left upper body?
