Smile would oxygen concentrator help?

Hi everybody,
I am wondering if anyone has had similar to this ??,Im having lots of tightness right around back to center front of my rib cage and the dr said its due to the lack of oxygen to the rib cage due to the low red cell count.
has any one experienced this and im wondering if a small portable oxygen concentrator, might give me some relief? thanks and stay positive everyone..it really is a lovely world.....hugs to everyone...aussie danielle

How low is your HGB?

The only time john felt like he had a band or tightness around his chest was when he was retaining fluids. He had a build up around his lungs.
