Should I be worried sick?

A month ago, I had a chest x-ray that revealed a 6mm ground glass anomaly. I was told everybody has them. Now, they have repeated the x-ray and the size of this has increased from 6 to 7mm, is this what is causing shooting pain and cramps in my arms and legs?, And why are they not saying anything about the glass in my lung, or the increase in size?

I hope by this time you have changed doctors. I think they are using ground glass as a descriptive term not that you have glass in your lung. Also use a different facility for xrays so you are not getting the same radiologist giving the same interpretation.
