Pain in lung when turning a certain way. Smoked weed

When i turn a certain way my left lung only hurts. I smoke weed one night and took a deep inhale and after my lung started hurting when i bend or turn a certain way. When i take a deep breathe my lung does not hurt so im not sure if its lung pain or rib pain. Im just wondering if you know what it is or how long it will take to heel. Im 22 years old

hi there
pain on bending to a side is suggestive of pleuritic pain but such a pain also increases on deep respiration.
and plus smokin just once any weed would probably not cause any infection.we have no of barriers to filter till it reaches lung.
i would like to kno if there is tenderness..that is whether it hurts on pressing
and is your pain radiating?
if yes then its more of a local pain of muscle pull or of some rib soreness in simple terms...

if any queries you can revert back
