From exercising: You are describing pain where the intercostal muscles attach to ribs. This is generally from a pulled or slightly torn tendon at that point and usually is the result of exercise. Hold off on working out until it goes away. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen may help in the meantime

Lung (Definition)

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

Sometimes when I take a deep breath there is a very sharp pain in my right lung what might cause this?

Pleuritis: Is a general term for pain when taking a deep breath and can be caused by a number of things, including infections and inflammation. You should probably see your doctor about this to make sure it is not something serious. Anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen and naproxyn help with pleurisy. Costochondritis and trauma can also cause localised pain.

As noted: Agree as noted by others. New onset and/or severe chest pain and/or persistent chest pain should be evaluated by physician. You need to have thorough exam and history review. Based on the initial evaluation, additional studies and/or appropriate treatment can be recommended.

See a doctor.: What you are describing might be pleuritic chest pain, caused by inflammation of the lining of the chest cavity. There are many potential causes, some simple and self-limited and some dangerous. Persistent severe pain needs to be evaluated.

My right lung hurts when I breath unless I breath really shallow?

My right lung hurts when I breath unless I breath really shallow?

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.

Bronchospasm...: You may be having bronchospasm as a result of the recent cold. It is very common to have bronchospasm following an upper respiratory infection. Treatment includes a bronchodilator inhaler and possibly a steroid inhaler. See your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
