Chest Pain On Deep Breaths (Overview)

It's the classic description of pleuritic pain... pain resulting from inflammation or irritation of the pleura (the lining surrounding the lung); the inflammation is called pleurisy. But, not all pain with inspiration is pleuritic. Pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma, tracheitis, cancer...all can cause painful respiration. It's like saying "Not all hoofbeats are from horses...some are from zebras."

Not likely the heart: You are describing chest wall (usually musculoskeletal) pain, not cardiac discomfort. Can also be caused by inflammation of the lining of the lung (pleurisy).

Chest pain with deep breath. Enlargd rght neck lymph node. Gingvitis. Fever 37, xrays ok, blood tests ok. Swollen bone right chest. I work o heavy load?

Why the concern?: Chest pain on deep inspiration only is almost certainly chest wall pain and is no concern. All young men have at least one enlarged neck lymph node. A temperature of 37c isn't a fever. Different people have different-shaped bones on their chests. Your dentist can advise you about your gum disease; i'd urge you simply to be grateful for good health and to continue enjoying your youth. ...Read more
