I hope this is the correct place to post.
I'm a 41 year old female, non smoker. I used to smoke but gave up 10 years ago. At the time, I suffered from bronchitis quite alot and also had a few bouts of pneumonia.
Over the past year, every time I get a cold it goes down to my lung which feel inflamed and I end up feeling run down and poorly. However, when doctors listen to my chest, it is clear. I feel very clogged up though and feel like there is alot of phlegm in my throat. I don't have a cough but tend to get a sore throat.
They decided to send me for a chest xray and it came back saying that there is no indication of lung disease, however there is a 'few' mm opacity in the lower right lung (meaning one opacity but only a few millimetres wide) and they suggest I rescan in 3 months.
My doctor could not advise me what this was exactly and couldn't even say that the 'opacity' was in the lung, it could be outside of it.. she also said that this would not be the cause of my reoccuring symptoms, so now I have even less answers than I started with and am also pretty worried.
If you have any advice or reassurance I would appreciate it.
