In brief: Pneumothorax

Some people, especially athletic teenaged men, simply experience multiple episodes of unexplained lung rupture and collapse.
I hope you don't smoke and that your physicians have talked about pleurodesis to prevent more episodes, and ruled out antitrypsin deficiency, sarcoidosis, and adult-type cystic fibrosis.
