Lung (Definition)

Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs.

I inhaled some smoke from a large forest fire raging in our state. I feel it's effect in my lungs. Will activated charcoal help?

Maybe as a filter: If the activated charcoal is in a respirator (gas mask) filter, it can help remove some chemicals in the air. Actually, the filter's big benefit will be stopping tiny airborne particles. Do realize that filters usually do not block carbon monoxide (CO) from a fire... which means CO can still kill the person. Drinking or eating activated charcoal will not help people around a brush fire. ...Read more

I was smoking and I inhaled a burning/on fire particle. What if it is still in my lungs burning? Is it anxiety or can a fire be present in my lungs?

Another good reason: This is another good reason to never smoke anything again. Inhaling the byproducts of burning organic material, plus whatever other chemical substances have been added, is plain unhealthy. If one has quit smoking, and he exhales (breathes out) but no longer sees smoke coming out, then there is no fire in the lungs. ...Read more

Chest pain: At 19 this would unlikely be a cardiac problem unless you are taking Cocaine or some other type of similar substance. Given your acid reflux I would lean that that may be causing your symptoms. Any neck or back problems? That can refer to the chest and would be a possible cause for "fire like" pain. ...Read more

Do not exceed the recommended dose on the package of whatever you choose. If this is frequent, a pediatrician should evaluate your son for more serious digestive problems, which would require more extensive treatment. ...Read more

Obesity, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, grease, mint etc. Make the reflux worse.
