I have severe asthma. Only severe asthma patients get Xolair approved by the insurance companies because it is around $10,000 per year on top of all the other asthma/allergy medications I take. I am telling you this to let you know that my asthma is pretty bad and I don't get the chest pains. I will get soreness if I have coughed a lot, but not what you are talking about. I get the chest tightness a lot. For instance, today was trash day and by the time I rolled both my trash cans around back, my chest was tight and I was very short of breath. Probably if I had used my nebulizer first, that wouldn't have happened. I'm a little stubborn.
I'm also wondering if you might have some pleurisy mixed in there. I've never had pleurisy, so I don't know what it feels like, but I think I would definitely have it checked out. I'm sure there must be a treatment for it, so we can get up and going again.
Please let us know what you find out.
