I've had dizzy spells for years and my doctors have associated that with blood sugar. 1 week ago, I started having more frequent dizzy spells. Then add in chest pain (pressure) behind my sternum the following day. Next day add pressure behind my right shoulder blade. That same day when the pain started in my upper jaw, we went to the ER. Everything normal....sent home with a follow up with PCP within 3 days. Hospital called and left a message about 4 hours after discharge saying a calcified granuloma was found on my lung by a second read of my cat scan. Went to PCP 2 days after ER, he says it might be pleurisy, put me on a steroid regimen for 6 days, and says he is going to order breathing function tests. Honestly he seemed dumbfounded. Heart disease runs rampant in my family.
