Hi everyone, can anyone help. I have had a kind of wheeze on waking every morning. It feels like it is at the bottom of my right lung. This has been going on now for over two years. I have had two chest xrays that show nothing. When l wake up l also feel very tired and find it hard to get going, once l get up and out of bed the wheeze dissappears. I did have two episodes of pleurisy about 3 years ago. I have also noticed my fingers are puffy in the morning and during the day they go down too. I am 48 female and not really over weight. I did have a large intake of wine (60+) units a week but have stopped drinking. I did have a pain in what l think was liver but that seems better. However the lung thing every morning l wake take a deep breath and it is still their. Whilst my GP tells me not to worry, l worry very much as my father died of lung cancer and l nursed him and l would be terrified to get the disease myself. Any ideas short of going for a private CT scan. Thanks in advance.:)
