Question: right lung

 BlueYoshi - Thu May 20, 2004 1:12 pm


I find your forum very informative, thank you for a great site.

On the right lung, for about 3 days now, goes into a bit of pain when I move (jumping, running) and when I take a deep breath. The pain stoppes when I rest and not move the lung, but it is something I have been concerned about. I am just awaiting to get enough funds and for my family to make an doctor oppointment.

I have never smoked or done anything like that, have not puked or had blood come up...just the pain. I am young adult, male.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you! :D

I have the same problem. It has been happening for about three months now and has been sporadic (maybe once every one or two weeks), but recently, about two days ago, it has been constant. When I stretch my right arm, there is a little bit of pain near the right shoulde. Also, when I put pressure in my lungs, there is pain. About a year or two ago, I tested positive with the TB shot, but my X-RAY turned out negative for active TB. Could this be active TB?
