About 5 months ago, I had a case of pneumonia which made my asthma flare up. I had quite a bit of rehabbing with oxygen therapy, and they changed my inhalers / meds for my asthma, but what keeps bothering me, is the meds seem to be doing their job, but in my left lung, I feel something strange. I think the best way to describe it... imagine you had a balloon that was not blown up yet, and it got wet inside and dried again. You go to blow it up, and it kind of sticks together for a second at the bottom , but then then air stretches it, and it fills with the air all the way. That's what it feels like in my left lung when I take a deep breath, as if part of it is stuck shut until I fill it with air completely. I can even hear an actual wheeze / gurgle in that area (it's just about by my last rib at the bottom). I even had my husband put his ear to that area, and he could hear it. When I had x-rays and CT scan of my lungs done, they said they looked fine, but I don't know if this happened after the x-rays or not because I was having such a hard time recovering from the pneumonia. Has anyone had this feeling or symptom before? I feel that if it was collapsed somewhat I would be even more out of breath, but I just don't know anymore. This whole thing came on so fast in the first place!
