I have been experiencing pressure/dull pain in my lung area (chest) when I take XXXXXXX breaths accompanied by stiffness in my shoulder and left upper side of chest (for 5 days). I had a cold for 10 days and am on my 3rd day of antibiotics and the symptoms are still present. At times I think it is a muscle strain but it is definitely a pressure/dull ache/pain in the lungs when I take a really XXXXXXX breath in. I also had mild asthma during my cold and when I went to urgent care last week she said there I sounded tight in the chest. My nose is now completely clear and I have no asthma symptoms. I am a healthy 38 year old woman.
