When I take a heavy breath my left back side where my lungs and ribs are hurt like a sore really painful feeling, can you please tell what's happenin?

The ribs or muscles might be sore, but they should also be sore when you push on the spot. The lining of the lung ("pleura") may also be inflamed, and this is usually a sharper kind of pain. It would be wise to let your doctor examine you and possibly order tests to determine the exact cause. ...Read more

Check with your Doc: The pain you're describing in your chest very well could be pleuritic chest pain.

PFT...: The best way to see how the lungs are functioning is to get pulmonary function testing.
