Hello all. Some of you have been conversing with me about some chest pain issues. Most of the extreme/scary stuff has subsided.. But my contant aches and pains continue to worsen. It almost seems as if the pain is spreading. My pain when breathing is still there as well.

Yesterday, I noticed a rash on my chest (splotchy, mostly red, even a little bit of a purple tint in areas) so I decied to take a picture to document for my diagnosis process. After taking the first picture I soon noticed something far worse than a petty little rash. It seemed to me that my affected area (upper left chest) was deformed. It sticks out notably further than the right. It also seems as if my collar bone is off centered on that side as well. I continued to take several picture to assure I centered the camera as perfect as possible, I've attached them here.

Anyone that deals with chest pain or deep breathing pain ever notice this? I don't know how alarmed I should be, but my view alone, I cannot see the diffence becasue it hurts to push my chin towards my chest. The pictures I've attached are taken from a little bit above the center of my cleavage at an angle facing up towards my neck.

First of all, I don't think these pictures are offensive.
I have the same uneven sides, but I have scoliosis. I didn't know, that I had scoliosis, until I was about 48, it was discovered at a chest x-ray.
Maybe, that is what you have.

Well I was just worried someone might get mad and get me kicked off this site, LOL! Just trying to be cautious. And I keep thinking that but I was checked obviously in junior high, then again recently at the chiropractor. Hmmm. Thanks for the input!

LOL You are not going to get kicked off for showing a picture of a symptom. Unless you start pushing a cure for Lupus you are not going to get kicked off without several private discussions so please don't worry about that!

Rashes on the chest seem to be pretty common with AI diseases. We've had a few threads about them on here. I have one, and I remember seeing the same sort of rash on both my Mother and my Aunt.
