After a year of suffering upper abdominal pain
on my right side, coupled with
breathing difficulties through moderate exertion(jogging, lifting moderate to heavy objects), and the inability to sleep either flat on my back
, or on my left side, positions I had slept on for fifty years, and when trying to sleep in my normal positions was unable to do so because of a dramatic feeling of suffocation, I was finally diagnosed with
idiopathic, unilateral, paralysis
of the diaphragm.
