burning sensation in lungs

I had a bout of pnuemonia recentlely, but two course of antibiotics managed to sort it out. However since then when i get up in the morning (or if i am very tired in the evening), I get a burning sensation in my lungs. It doesn't feel like heartburn, just feels like my lungs are on fire. Does anyone else get this sort of problem?

    Hello Heidi,

    I have had this problem when I walk/exercise especially when it has been cold and the pollution has been bad. I went to see my asthma nurse who put me on singular which as helped so maybe it's worth while going to see your asthma nurse.

    Hope this helps.

  • Thanks for the reply :-)))

    What an earth is Singular?? I don't have an asthma nurse - my asthma is managed by my GP and until recently was managed by a consultant at the local hospital (I am a carrier of Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency - and I do tend to get chest infections/pnuemonia if I am not careful). I think I will visit the GP and see what they have to say....but thanks for taking the time to reply.
