Have an acute inner chest pain when i inhale diagnose?

Is there a cough?: Depends on how long you've had this symptom. If it's been an intermittent problem for most of your life, it might be bronchospasm or a form of asthma.

If this is a recent development and is associated with a cough, it could be bronchitis that is irritating your bronchus under the sternum. ...Read more

Since my pleurodesis 8 yrs ago i still get chest pain occasionally when i inhale. Are my lungs partially collapsing? Will it likely get worse?

Since my pleurodesis 8 yrs ago i still get chest pain occasionally when i inhale. Are my lungs partially collapsing? Will it likely get worse?

Pleurisy: Chest pain while taking a deep breath can be due to pleurisy, which is inflammation of the lining of the chest cavity. If you have previously had pleurodesis, the pain you are feeling may be from localized scarring of the pleura and is likely not a concern. However, if you had pleurodesis to treat a collapsed lung or pneumothorax then you should see your doctor to get a chest x-ray. ...Read more
