If the pain is aggravated with work or exercise then it could be due to cardiac pain. But when in doubt always best to have it checked. So please consult your primary care physician who may ask for an EKG or a treadmill test to rule out a cardiac cause for the pain. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn What you describe having experienced 4 years ago, “my lungs feel as if they are not expanding and I literally hold my breath for some reason, not because of pain or any other reason, I also have a itch sometimes in my lungs,” is sometimes seen with anxiety, an inappropriate focus on one’s breathing for whatever reason, or with Hyperventilation Syndrome, in which a person develops heightened awareness of his breathing; that is to say, a person begins to focus excessively on his breathing an
Avatar n tn Today in school me and my buddies were joking around, and my friend gave me a "open chest" where it is they hit you in your chest. Well he hit me on the top of my chest, around my sternum. After I went home I realized pain. When I take deep breathe's it seems to hurt alot, and if I move certain ways it hurts alittle...

Avatar n tn I had sudden onset of breathing difficulty, profuse sweating and alot of chest pain, poor breath sounds with rattling in my chest. I was subsequently put on Biaxin, prednisone, duramax and albuterol along with another med to control my cough. Since then, I have had chronic problems with breathing and pain. I have been on oral steriods at least four times in the past few months along with singulair and now advair and albuterol as required.
Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The pain in the chest could be due to costochondritis, which causes pain and tenderness at points where your ribs attach to your breastbone. The inflammation around the joint area gives sharp pain on taking a breath. This can also cause tenderness on pressing the area which pains. An orthopedic doctor can diagnose this for you. Generally there is no cause. However it can be due to infection, blow, injury, or fibromyalgia. It usually goes away on its own.
Avatar m tn Bhastrika - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose. Duration upto 5 minutes.Place your fists, with the thumb pointing up, on the the legs, above the the knee, and do bhastrika for one minute.Repeat this for one minute, but with the fists upside down, so that the thumb is pointing down, and resting on the legs. Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second.

Avatar n tn The research I have done shows that these and other fungi can cause respiratory issues like chest pain, congestion, cough, lung scarring, and even masses in the lungs. Your additional symptoms of night sweats is also very common with these infections. I don't know if this helps or not, but I hope you will keep us updated.
Avatar n tn I have chest pain that comes and goes for the last 10 years. I also have a very sharp pain on my lower left abdomen. I have hip pain and knee pain and back pain the doctor or ER can't tell me what the cause is. the only thing they say is that I have hypoinflation in my lungs but can't tell me why. thay did a cat scan of my chest and ex-ray and ekg which only showed inflation in my lungs. My lab results were not normal either. can you please help me.
Avatar m tn over the passed 4 months i have been getting upper middle back pain, tender to touch lower ribs arm pain etc,i still think i have lung cancer when the xray shows nothing after 4 months of these symptoms,i am 32 years old
1309556 tn?1274285692 Chest pain can originate from chest wall (bone, muscle or skin), esophagus, heart, lungs, tissue linings surrounding the lungs (the inflammation of which is known as pleurisy or pleuritis). Sometimes problems with neck, spine, gall bladder, liver or stomach may also cause chest pain. Usually it is difficult to decide what to do when you have chest pain.
Avatar n tn As teko says, again assuming you mean hyperinflation, you must have had at least a bit of pain before now, perhaps more in the centre of the chest area? I have done nothing but research COPD, and in particular emphysema, since Feb/March this year, and have not come across hyperinflation where it was not one of the presenting symptoms.
Avatar f tn If your doctor said you have pleurisy, that is inflammation of the lining of the lungs and chest. It is often a sign of a viral infection of the lungs. With anti inflamatory meds and REST might help... I felt the same way only that i had the fluid around my heart and it needed to be drained. I wish you well, but i would follow up with the doctor, possibly a lung and heart doctor. if it does not get better within 5 days of starting the anti infalamtory meds.
Avatar n tn Sounds like this may be related to your lungs.
Avatar f tn Makes it harder for us to breath, and also with them making room in there it pushes up against our lungs which could cause your chest pain. Let your DR know about it.
Avatar m tn i have been suffering with lack of breath and tightness of chest also anxiety attacks. after a visit to hospital and some tests and scans there has been a couple of shadows found on my left lung. i am really quite scared that it can be something that is quite bad and i am wondering if anyone could shed some light on this and what the possibilities are. dont be shy please as im a big boy now and have broad shoulders.
Avatar m tn i sympathise with anyone who has it as it is a pain like i have never known before and i know pain on a personal basis due to been a mixed martial artist,i had a broken pelvis,ribs wrist,ankle,arm and leg all on 1 side when i fell from a height before,but i was walking within 2 days,but this has had me in my sick bed for 2 weeks. thats how incapacitating this burning can be.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms are not specific, but any chest pain should be checked out. Chest XR can show many things, but not heart pain. An EKG would be advisable as a baseline test. If anything else shows up the doctor will follow that up. Don't delay this.
Avatar n tn i'm concerned about a chronic chest pain that feels like stabbing in the middel of my upper left chest above the left breast plate almost near my collar bone. the pain comes and goes i don't have any other symptoms other that a constant clearing of my throat. i've seen a doctor who believes that i may have a bronchitis infection so i'm taking medication for that. my blood pressure was 130/80 which is not bad, but i just don't understand why the pain won't go away.
Avatar f tn every time i breath my lungs hurt...been hurting for a few months.. some days it hurts more then others. and my back has been hurting the same amount of time... doctor told me i do not have pneumonia.. i also dont smoke...
Avatar n tn I moved to Wellington New Zealand in October and a couple of weeks later I developed a lung irritation, post nasal drip and productive-with-phlegm cough. I went to the doctor with these symptoms and chest pain etc. Antibiotics did not work so i was prescribed som ventolin for my cough attacks and strong anti-histamines as Wellington is known for it's high pollen count. These did not really help. I went to sea for 5 days over the new year my symptoms completely cleared.
Avatar n tn Have pain in center of chest is very sore to touch. Have had heart, lungs, liver, and gallbladder checked. Endoscops y is scheduled in 2 weeks. I have pain as I eat in this area also any with any other movement of this area. My dr. put me on predisone twice thinking it was tietze syndrome with no help. All blood tests are good I do have a cough and my voice has changed to a strained sound. I also am tired and have a lot of trouble sleeping because of the pain.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have been having chest pains, usually in the upper left side of my chest or in the center part of my chest, and a sensation of not being able to fully inhale because it hurts. This usually happens shortly after exercise and sometimes when Im laying down even if I haven't exercised. My dad suffers of high cholesterol levels and he recenlty had a bypass surgery. Could these pains be related to an unhealthy heart?
Avatar n tn Within about two minutes, my heartrate has gone from 80 to 140-ish, and I have really bad chest pain that seems to be getting worse. My heart is beating faster and faster too and its uncomfortable. I'm struggling for breath, and I have a sharp pain central to my heart when I breathe in, and a dull ache in my lungs. I'm a bit worried, does anyone know whats going off?
