Elevated diaphragm causing COPD type symptoms
I recently had a upper esophageal barium test as my Dr. thought from chest X-rays it looked like my diaphragm was compressing my left lung. The photos from the barium test did show a highly elevated diaphragm. My Dr. is discussing with a surgeon about the possibility of surgically lowering it. The only possibility that I can think of that might of caused this problem, would be related to a auto accident 20 odd years ago. Has anyone else on Connect possibly been diagnosed with similar?
