I'll give some background info. I'm paranoid about breathing in dust particles and crap so I'll force myself to cough and this has been going on for about two years. Sometimes my lungs will hurt and I'll stop. On Saturday, I went for a long exercise walk for about 2 hours, more or less, after not exercising for many weeks and afterwards, I felt very exhausted. Later that day, I was in a car accident but had no injuries. I've been getting bad sleep lately. On Saturday, I slept from 9-midnight, then 1-2AM then I stayed up until 9AM and slept until 3. Sunday night, I slept from 5AM-3PM. On Monday night, I basically laid in bed all night but couldn't fall asleep and pretty much stayed up all night. This is when it started to hurt in my right side of my chest when I would breathe deeply or cough and it got worse as the night and day progressed. I felt pretty miserable on Monday and had a tough time breathing sometimes. It hurt to breathe last night and I contemplated going to the hospital but I laid down and my breathing got better and I finally slept from 12-9AM. I feel better today and breathing is easier but there's still some pain when I stand up, walk around, breathe deeply, etc. What is wrong with me? Any thoughts? Do I just need to take it easy and sleep well?

See a doctor, or look on WebMD to find out you have ovarian cancer

Could just be a sore muscle in your chest or something. Did you cause the accident? You may be entitled to compensation otherwise. :o

We are not doctors. I'm not sure what convinced you to believe that any of us have any viable medical experience, but I can assure you that taking medical advice from a Nintendo forum can not be one of your brighter moments.

 

Please see a doctor.

It's the black lung pop

 

Several possibilities:

The most likely one is it's justs "one of those things" - our bodies act weird sometimes, hurt at random, who knows. Could be just that. Any history of asthma? Has there been any recent construction going on in your area? Allergy season? etc etc etc

Also possible is damage from the accident you didn't immediately feel, but is causing trouble nonetheless.

Also possible is that you've forced yourself to cough so much that you've actually damaged lining somewhere.

Also possible (but much less likely) is that gamut of horrifying plagues and diseases that WebMD will tell you that you have.

 

Recommendation:

Give it another day or two. Often these things just work themselves out. If it doesn't clear up, or does and later resurfaces, see a doctor. However, be on the look out for fever, as that can be a symptom of infection/blood poisoning which is a very immediate and dangerous problem.

Coughing is the wrong thing to do to deal with dust...

If you must be paranoid, then just take the time to make deep breaths.
That will help out your lungs a lot more than coughing.

Also, you can make an appointment to see a lower rung guy at a clinic MUCH sooner ( and cheaper ) than what it takes to see an actual doctor.
They will be knowledgeable enough to know if you need to schedule a Dr.appointment, and they will likely be able to get you a sooner appointment than you otherwise would if it is expedient.

Ahh Canada, plenty of free clinics with well-qualified GPs you can just walk into.

Firstly, go see a doctor. Chest pain is something you should never take likely.

That said, though, it sounds like a pulled or sore muscle in your chest of some sort. It's not something I would call 911 for or anything, but calling your doctor or seeing one the next chance you get to confirm that it is just a pulled or sore muscle and nothing more serious.

When I used to run Cross Country I would run a brisk 6 miles a day. Occasionally on days where I pushed myself hard I would find it hard to breathe for a day or two afterwards (same symptoms you described). Then it would randomly dissapear and I would forget about it. I'm not sure if a long walk could trigger something like that, but its possible.

 

If the problem lasts more than 5 days I would see a doctor.

Please go to a doctor. My friend was complaining about not feeling well for several days and decided to tough it out, then finally it got so bad that he was forced to go, but it was too late. He died a few hours after checking in. This was last week, and from what I know so far, it was ecoli, possibly from his recent trip to Mexico 3 weeks ago. Anyway, think about that if it is a constant pain. Get it looked at before it spreads.

This isn't the place to go for medical advice.  IMO this thread should be locked.

I've performed countless back-alley lung transplants. I think I know what I'm saying when I say you need a new set of lungs. I've got a nice one over here that's only a few weeks old. Might have a bullethole or two in it-I think the previous owner was a criminal of some sort-but I put some duck tape on it, so you should be fine. Let me just grab my rusty pizza cutter, and we'll get started.

 

 

 

But, yeah, go see a doctor if it's pain that doesn't go away relatively quickly/is constantly bugging you. I get muscle cramps or whatever in my chest after pulling them, and they only last maybe a few short seconds, and it's usually only once or twice tops (although sometimes it does take a minute to pass depending on how pulled the muscle is). If it's still gnawing at you, I'd run to a doctor or a clinic to see what's up.
