Lungs hurt, feels like crushing. Cause and cure?

When I wake up in the morning my lungs sort of hurt, it feels like I have been crushing them all night. It starts to go away as soon as I m walking about or sitting up right. But I would like to stop it happening. Does it sound like It could be caused by lying funny/too long etc or could it be something else. I sleep on my sides.

Hi and thanks for the query,

It would be very important to know exactly what is going on. Simple conditions that could easily be managed from the start if left not managed could lead to severe complications late in the course of the disease.

I would strongly suggest you get a complete and keen clinical review from your family physician and also get a good quality chest X ray done. In csse of cough, sputum examination to exclude pulmonary TB could be useful.

I suggest you consult your primary care physician. Thanks and kind regards,

Bain LE, MD.
