    This is one of those times when I wish our virtual community was a little closer physically! Glad your parents are there for you, Teresa. :) And love the way you helped minimize Jack's fears for Mum with the radioactivity story! :D

    My mother used to have occasional bouts with something called pleurisy--symptoms similar to yours. Had to look it up on Wikipedia to see what it actually is--all I could remember was the pain and shortness of breath. Now that I'm thinking about it, it seems to be related to when she had periods of enforced inactivity--surgery, injury, etc.

    I couldn't get the link to work, but the path is below. I just read the basic description and certainly wouldn't consider any information to be a comprehensive or absolutely accurate source of medical information, but it might be a possibility if the doctors rule everything else out and the pain persists.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleurisy

    I have the feeling that it's one of those things modern doctors often don't think about.

    What ever is causing your pain, I hope it ceases and desists soon and you feel better!

    Edited to add:

    Wouldn't you know? The link finally decided to work!

    Hopefully, your current course of meds will do the trick and you'll never have to think of it again! :)

    Glad your home in one piece and feeling better today. It aint pleasant when dr's are poking and prodding (even if they are yummy looking!)

    Try sleeping on your back tonight, years ago I had a chest infection and my ribs and chest were hurting because when I took a breathe my inflamed chest would be crushed by my ribs, sleeping on my back helped because my chest wouldn't raise high enough to hit my ribs. Very happy to hear there are no blood clots found though.

    Take care and get some kip tonight.
