Disclaimer

my lungs feel heavy when breathing but no shortness of breath also i have dry cough. is this a normal sickness or should i be worried?

See physician: Asthma can present like this, rather than with wheezing. A number of lung problems can have only a dry cough as you do. See your physician. An evaluation, including breathing tests and a chest X-ray can get to the root of the problem and proper treatment.
