Patient :I am currently 23 weeks and 1 day pregnant. Today, I have had really hard troubles breathing. It hurts when I take a breath in. Its not heartburn but it hurts in my chest on the right side towards the middle of my chest. When I take a deep breath, it hurts so bad that it goes to my back. It feels like it could be my lungs. I was wanting to know, should I go to the hospital or what could it be?
