I have been experiencing extreme fatigue, chest pain and a generalized feeling not being well. Two days ago my son took me to the ER, because the chest pain was so severe. I was diagnosed with pleuracy sent home (after 24 hrs) on oxygen because every few minutes my oxygen level dropped for a few seconds to the low 80's. I had a CT of my lungs, which showed only that one lung is slightly compressed. My ekg was good.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why my oxygen level would be dropping? I have never smoked but I am 50 lbs overweight.

Thank you
