I have progressed to shortness of breath with very little effort. My doctor suspect there is fluid in my lung or possible pneumonia.
I have developed sever claustrophobia while taking test. Cat Scans have taken on a nightmare quality. The has progressed over the past year. Today I tried to do a chest CT and was medicated with 2MG of Ativan and totally broke down and begged them to stop.
Has any one else experienced this and how did you get through it?
Thank you.
