Never really thought about it before, only recently realized that some asthmatics get pain in lungs as a significant symptom. What is it that causes the pain? I have occasionally noticed a sharp-ish pain in the lungs, usually just in one area (one side or across the bottom - never in the top part of my lungs). Will probs check its nothing significant with my GP next time I see him, but it doesnt in itself cause problems apart from being uncomfortable, it doesnt make it hard to breathe although it does tend to be when im at the point where i notice a bit of effort in exhaling, although i spend a lot of time like that so it could be a coincidence. I dont like to attribute everything to asthma, and like i say, it wasnt something i really thought about before, just assumed it was one of those random things my body likes to do to confuse me. And i'm not particularily prone to chest infections, when i do get them i tend to *really* know about it, would be surprised if my body was able to be subtle about it!
Basically what i'm asking is, does anyone get this for 'asthma' reasons, or know what causes it if it was asthma? or what else causes this sort of pain? (as i said, will check it out with GP - i just suspect if he *can* attribute it to uncontrolled asthma he will, its got to the point where i wonder if i walked in with a dislocated shoulder he'd say 'probs caused by the breathing' lol!)
Sorry for the slightly random musings, just nice to know whether its a 'my body' type thing, or if others get it!
