Stop smoke, see doc: You probably know that smoking is harmful to your health, and stopping can be one of the best things to improve your health -- a present to yourself! a number of lung problems can happen from smoking - asthma, inflammation of the lung lining (pleura), as well as narrowing of arteries in the heart and blood clots. You should try to stop, and also have a doc check out your pains.
