Pain: deep breath: This sort of pain is usually associated with mild upper respiratory viral conditions, and is secondary to folding of the lung on expiration, with a full inspiration producing sharp pain in "side and back", with inability to "take a deep breath". Breathe slowly and most times the fold will disappear and pain will stop: "pleuritic pain". See your healthcare provider if this continues.
