Review

What I liked: "Mr Kramer was extremely polite and listened to my history. He explained his thought processes very clearly and discussed the care pathway fully. He included my husband in the discussions, which was helpful. I have confidence in this clinician already!"

Could improve: "The training of the venepuncturists; the lady was very nice but was not cognisant of the protocols for taking blood samples (tube colours etc.) If I were an anxious patient she would have made me more nervous. I am a healthcare professional myself, so it was not an issue for me personally!"

I went for: an initial consultation

Could improve: "I don't feel there is anything to be improved."

I went for: tonsils

Hello
As you probably might have already gleaned from your internet searches (assuming that you had already done this) a Pneumomediastinum is not common.

It occurs on a background of another clinical diagnosis, either in the lung (such as an acute asthma attack or an interstitial lung disease) or within the Oesophagus (Esophagus if you are from the USA). With the latter there is very often a history of retching or vomiting that predates the occurrence of the Pneumomediastinum.

Spontaneous Pneumomediastinum is rarer still. This implies that the Pneumomediastinum occurred without any apparent recognised (or pre-existing) cause.

It would be helpful for you to have a consultation with a Respiratory Physician or Pulmolnologist close to where you live. You would need a complete respiratory work up after you have recovered from your Spontaneous Pneumomediastinum. The evaluation would assist your doctor with the evidence to base any advise that is offered.
