I dont think it`s pleurisy. Sounds to me like you`ve coughed too much, too hard and for too long. Another possible cause of lower back bilateral pain is kidney problems. How much, how often and what liquids and do you drink ? What color is your urine ? Can you see thru it ?
Emotional stress can manifest physically in many ways including triggering an asthma attack.
If the pain you refer to more like a soreness ?
zkt and Allison,
I would like to welcome you both as new members of HealingWell. After a few days, you will feel like family around here.
zkt, I enjoyed that article.
Allison, it sounds like maybe you need to see your doctor again.
wow you sound just like me. I got sick the 15th of May with Bronchitis. I am having the exact same symptoms as far as the shortness of breath. My back pain/tightness can be worse at times and I feel the ache all day but it usually bothers me more at night. I never have wheezing either just a lot of chest tightness and SOB. Im on Alubterol and Flovent inhalers. But Allisonc7 keep in touch with me since we both seem to be going through the same thing. I have my email and IM posted on my profile.
