When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more

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! ...Read more

If I take anything more than a shallow breath after lying down on my side I experience sharp pains from my right lung don't smoke no conditions. Help?

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. ...Read more

Plural solitary tumor in right lung. 5.5 cm same size for 8 month. Surgeon told me will not fix my shortness of breath. Is it ok to leave it?

Plural solitary tumor in right lung. 5.5 cm same size for 8 month. Surgeon told me will not fix my shortness of breath. Is it ok to leave it?

Well, what is it?: That lesion may not be causing your shortness of breath, but what is it. Monitoring something like this for eight months may not be enough. Pleural-based lesions like this should be monitored for longer periods of time before we're assured (without a biopsy) that they're benign. 5.5cm is a pretty good size. ...Read more

I am a regular smoker of marijuana. I took a toke of marijuana and choked and now my right lung hurts. Could it b a cramp? It's hard for me to breath

I am a regular smoker of marijuana. I took a toke of marijuana and choked and now my right lung hurts. Could it b a cramp? It's hard for me to breath

Probably muscular: It is rare to have pain coming from the lung itself. Your choking probably strained muscles in your chest wall/ribcage- esp. If the pain is worse with taking a deep breath. You might try an icepack over the sore area, the homeopathic remedy arnica and Ibuprofen or Aspirin to relieve the pain. If the pain worsens or you feel short of breath you should seek medical care. ...Read more
