Hello, I am 26 years old, 11 years with 2 years stop on and off smoker. I had a cold one month ago and it was strange, because only left side lymph nodes were swollen. My doc ordered a cxr and it came negative. The cough almost passed, even though in the morning I still have some rusty colored sputum, but this I could dismiss due to the fact that I've stopped smoking.But I have recently 10 days ago started to have stronger pains in my right shoulder and chest, specially when I cough ( I cough like 10 times a day and not strong). The pains are in my right shoulder, not constant, but sometimes really severe. Today morning when I coughed also my right ear hurt. I also have this slight pain in my right let, but no lower back pain. I've been to my doctor to ask for a chest ct just in order to be clear and calm, but she said there is no need. The pain is not constant, but it gets worsen if I lie on that side, sometimes I also get my toes numb in the right side. Please advise me if I really do not need to worry, or I should insist for a ct scan to my chest?
P.S. I know, that my question does not qualify for your rules, but please advice me, as I am really worried.
