This may be a silly question, but is it common to have the feeling that your illness has taken hold in the center of your chest? Of course I have all kinds of symptoms all over the place, but I would definitely say that right in the middle is where it feels like there's weakness and inflammation and infection? Or maybe it's just because that area gets tired out from having to breathe 24/7? Doctors obviously think it's just one of the symptoms of my CFS or Fibro but I wonder if I should have some kind of pulmonary tests? Would a lung function test do much? If I try hard enough, I can probably exhale and inhale a normal volume of air, so then they'll think I am just normal? I guess I could just spend the time and copay to see another doc about the lungs, I am not sure if it's lungs that are bothering me, maybe it is other things deep in the chest. I figure it is soft tissue related and I find that medical docs don't help with soft tissue problems. I have diagnosed problems of my airway/throat (diagnosed officially as sleep apnea but it may be UARS) but am unsure how to get any other help for it besides maybe taking another drug, which I'd rather not.
