Phernic nerve pain

Shaxx Member Posts: 8 Listener
Joining today because of phrenic nerve pain. Had xray and shows my diagraphram is raised on the left side. I believe I may have a paralysed diagraphram. I find it hard to breathe and to get a full breath of air. Having a ct scan on Monday and I imagine this weekend will be spent full of worry.

    They are okay. My condition has improved... Had a lung function test and waiting in the waiting room to see the consultant. I believe my left side of my diagraphram is paralysed.... Luckily we have two lungs! Hope you are well Steve.
