Common Questions and Answers about Tightness chest lungs hurt


Avatar f tn Did they also check you for costochondritis? That can make it hurt to breathe. Try to think optimistically about your chest tightness- it just may improve!
1014527 tn?1251061098 Things seems to have slightly improved for a small amount of time but I could never shake off this tightness of chest/tightness on full breathing. One concern was I had thick, yellow-dark yellow mucus for a few days straight at work(I work as a stocker overnight/around dust/etc.) and my temperature was fine. As well as this discomfort in my chest which is located about dead square middle of my breast cavity, sometimes in the ribcage/sternum with sensitivity touching below the sternum.
213398 tn?1202674074 Micheal, I got the butterfly feeling in my chest, it follow with few beats, big dumps and tightness. My tightness in the chest can last half a day long. I discovered it could be a LBBB. Just my discovery. As everyone has LBBB is being told it is harmful and the Drs "DON'T CARE". I learn to live with it. Have a run, power walk or strong coffee. You may have luck!
Avatar f tn I've had this hacking dry cough for 3-4 weeks now and it started getting worse a few days ago. When I breathe in too deeply my chest/lungs tighten and the cough hurts. When I breathe the air feels very cold. What could this be? I don't cough up anything, it just won't go away. It all started when I was eating and a friend made me laugh and I sucked the food in wrong- is it possible to get food in your lung? I also have pains in my neck and back- is it connected?
638132 tn?1223950668 When my chest tightens up, it does hurt...actually it is a dull ache. Nothing will move, even mucous and the sensation just gets worse and worse as plugs form. Hurts like hell, I will admit. I can also relate with the jello knees sensation, feeling very weak whenever this happens. I guess this might be because I am usually getting some kind of infection which results in worsening asthma and the tightness. Are you seeing a specialist for your asthma/allergies right now?
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 n tn Its only the 4th day and Ive had some chest tightness and some aching. This lead me to a couple panic attacks which I got control of on the 2nd day when I realized what was going on. But I dont understand this chest tightness and aching. No erratic heart-rate or high blood pressure. Doesnt feel like lung issues cause on deep breaths it doesnt hurt more. Anyone else experienced this kinda of side effect with this stuff? Are these normal for starting this stuff?
Avatar n tn Hx of anxiety/palpitations,sinus tachy up to 130-140,recorded on event monitors and in office ekg. Last year while on trip chest felt tight, around whole chest. No chest pain associated with these episodes. Started to panic, hr up to 130s. Upon seeing Dr. had echo/stress, ekg, chest x-ray, blood etc, repeated. EF% normal, no ischemia, all sizes wnl. All good, no changes. Possible allery or anxiety related was the thought. No asthma. Sinuses are swollen/congested.
Avatar n tn old female who for the past week has been experiencing difficulty breathing with a tightness in my left upper chest. I struggle to get a deep breath and sometimes have to yawn to do so. If I thought about it enough and panicked, I could hypervetalate trying to catch my breath. The only relief I get is when laying down to sleep or rest. This started out of nowhere.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have constant head pressure and chest tightness 24/7/365 atleast for the last 15 years. I went to Cardiologist, and Gastroenterologist but they were clueless. They conducted tests like 24 hr Holter Monitor test, Upper Endoscopy, Gastric Motility Disorder test, and Abdominal Ultrasound but all the tests were normal. I also used medication for stress/anxiety but it didn't give any relief. Eating/drinking and exercise worsen the symptoms.
Avatar n tn From what I understand about it, it is an irritant that will cause you to have chest tightness and SOB. I already experience SOB and am kinda weary of taking this test. I don't want to not be able to breathe at all. Anyways, if you know anything about this please let me know.
634733 tn?1316629592 I have a question though that I have tried to research for months and I am getting no where from the research or the medics. It started with a really nasty chest infection in January this year which required antibiotics and 2 weeks off work. This left me with a barking cough which would not go and is intermittent throughout the day (it doesn't wake me at night).
Avatar f tn Right now the neck is too tight, I have keep taking Advil which is not good to relieve this tightness. I feel like no doctor cares to help and that I'm the only person in the area with this problem. It all started around the time I was experiencing symptoms of mono before I was diagnosed. I see another endo in November. What else can I ask for to see if this problem can be solved (aside from having the thyroid removed). I'm at my wit's end! Thank you for any help!
Avatar m tn Hi have had throat tightness and chest pain tightness and sometime hard to swallow, my doctor asked me to take penicilin based antibiotics to clear up any cold symptoms and also gave me throat calmer tablets that are calming for allergy as well as a nose inhaler also alergy related from what I can read in leaflet - he also requested blood and urine samples and throat scan so I'm wonderign what this can be as he just told me we'll get to bottom of this and not explained more, the tightness in th
Avatar n tn tightness in chest posted by Leean on December 03, 1998 at 16:13:32: I am 32 yrs old. On several occasions I have experienced a tightness in the center of my chest which last a couple of days and then disappears. It doesn't really hurt, but it is uncomfortable. There is a history of heart problems in my family. Also, I was diagnosed several years ago as having a heart murmur.
Avatar f tn I have been on wellbutrin to quit smoking for 10 days now, I have such chest tightness I feel as though I can't breath, like there is no air in my lungs. I heard this is a side effect should I keep taking it?
Avatar n tn A few tests will relieve your mind and can't hurt. Sometimes just worrying about chest pain and why you have it will cause more chest pain. I hope this has helped and good luck to you and your family.
Avatar n tn Anyway, I was having the chest pain and tightness and spasms and went to the ER. Had EKG and blood tests done and found my heart was okay. BP was a little high 140/85 but been under 128/65 for the last 6 months with diet and exercise. These symptoms were really worrying me, giving me anxiety that I would have a heart attack etc. Hopefully, this is what everyone else if having in lieu of heart problems.
Avatar m tn I have randomly been having rapid onset breathing difficulty where it feels like my lungs and throat are swelling up and hurt\itch. I think it used to happen very rarely but has happened like 3 times in the last month. The last two times I had been inside a clean modern building for about an hour. It comes on very fast and fluctuates gradually decreasing for about half an hour. Both times I stayed in the environment where it happened and it decreased on it's own.

Avatar f tn i would describe it as a tightness starting in the middle of my chest bone and radiating to both lungs., im not short of breath and am not on any medication.It started around the time i had slipped a disc in my back. could that be the cause of the pain?
Avatar n tn I took antibiotic for two weeks and the pain on my chest go but right now i'm feeling shortness of breath, tightness on my chest, and chest burn with mild cough. Can someone help me what this might be now.
Avatar n tn I noticed my heart rate would go higher than my husbands, once heart rate hit 130 I would get a tightness, squeezing, pressure in my chest. Once I stop and get the heart rate below 125, the tightness goes away. I tried working thru it and heart rate went up to over 180. This has happened when I have been under SEVERE stress also. Went to family doctor, he had me do a nuclear stress test, it was normal. Doctor sent me to Cardiologist who said I needed a heart cath.
Avatar m tn It becomes all the more significant because of your associated symptoms of shortness of breath. Cardiac pain or chest pain can be felt as a tightness and worsens with activity or exercise. This could be more relevant if you are a smoker, are overweight, have a positive family history, are a diabetic and have hypertension. The other causes to consider would be cervical spondylosis (neck problem) or disorders of the nerves, muscle or shoulder joint.
Avatar f tn If you feel it in your chest and throat, it is possible that a small amount is being carried to your lungs just from normal respiration. A friend's mother a few years ago ended up with lung cancer that the doctors suspected was from years a reflux. My experience is to drink plenty of water over the course of the day, take your medications, no coffee or carbonated drinks and eat smaller meals.
Avatar n tn It seems to be made worse from stress and sleepless nights do not help. I get a tightness across the chest and feel restricted, which is only alleviated by the cracking of the sternum. I worry that this cracking will cause issues long term, like Arthritis, etc. However, sometimes there is no option as the amount of times that this occurs is increasing and the cracking (and sometimes popping) can happen from just sitting up, turning or running up the stairs.
Avatar n tn She calls it a bubble feeling, but that's how she is describing the tightness in her chest. She did have this wake her up last night in the middle of the night. That seems like it's a first. So any information we can get will be helpful to us to understand this. We're learning as we go along. Her doctor told her that she would probably breathe better in the warmer months than the colder months.
Avatar f tn Won't even go into the unsympathetic reaction to my sever anorexia. Have not even told them about my shortness of breath and chest tightness as of yet, will wait till I get labs done. Don't trust them at all so I go get my labs everytime I get a test done.
Avatar n tn Hi all. I had an ablation 4 weeks ago and since that time I have been experiencing chest tightness, pressure, and sharp pains in the heart. I am seeing my doctor on a weekly basis to determine the cause and undergo treatment. Following a work up of tests (echo, nuclear stress, ekg, etc.) the doctor has determined that everything in the heart is normal and that this "discomfort may be something that I just have to ride out.
