If ra is present, will a sonogram of the lungs or echogram of the heart diagnoise such?Also, is a normal echogram of the heart conclusive against heart disease?

Appreciate your response about thyroid nodule. Hope to get another fna. Have been having pain deep in my left chest, behind my breast. It is not constant. But is an ache when present. Am on blood pressure medicine. Also have a rare pac. Moderate sleep apnea. Hypothyroidism, but on medication, with nodule. Also difficultly breathing especially when humid.Have not felt like doing my pilates, but when I last did, upon trying to come up from lying position, there is a wheezing from my throat, it sounds like. Both sonogram of my lungs and echogram of heart came back normal. I do have pain in both thumbs, that hurts bad, then eases, only to return with a vengance. My right hand tingles and three of my fingers pain me at such times, when I use it for very long.Also suffer from fatigue. Wondering what is making my chest to hurt, and to have difficulty breathing since tests came back normal. Thankyou so much for your help! gd
