My right lung hurts alot just when I breath. It started yesterday around noon and now its getting more painful. I sneezed and almost fainted from pain?
Pleurisy or other dx: Pain with breathing is called 'pleuritic pain'. Pleurisy or pneumonia can cause inflammation of the 'lung lining' so it is important to distinguish these 2 causes. Pneumonia usually has other symptoms: cough/fever/fatigue/short of breath. A chest xray can help make the diagnosis. The treatment for pleurisy is 'anti-inflammatories' (nsaids) such as aleve (naproxen). Hope you are better soon!

Go to see your MD: Go to see md to get checked. It could be from something like pleurisy/irritation to your pleura (outside lining of your lung) vs, muskuloskeletal related- however if you have other symptoms, bronchitis/pneumonia, blood clot etc. Should be also ruled out. Take some nsaids to help the pain and go to see your md to get checked.
