    Woke up about 3am with a horrible pain in my chest/heart, went back to sleep after pain dulled but I kept waking up every time I rolled over. It's still really bad, my breathing is really shallow, every time I try to breath more I start coughing. I've also got a painin one of my shoulder blades. Went on my paper round and had to stop several times, particually when walking up hills. I'm in bed now, but it still hurts, it feels like I've just finished running a 10k marathon. My mum thinks I've got a chest infection, but I'm not producing mucus and the coughing more stems from my breathing. Should i try to get this checked out? I don't know what's wrong with me, and I don't know how I've done it.

    When I read it, I thought it sounds like a chest infection. But unfortunately, I'm not in possession of medical degree, so please see a doctor.

    I would add i had really bad chest pains and I was told I had over inflated lungs, Its probably nothing to worry about but go and see a doctor anyway.

    Go to A&E. Chest pain + shortness of breath could be a number of things, but it needs reviewing, preferably somewhere which has an X-ray machine (i.e. not the GP).

    Glad it's sorted out. Did you need a chest drain/aspiration?

    I think it was the aspiration, I was meant to have the drain if the procedure I had didn't work, but thankfully it did

    I don't know much about this kind of thing so how did that happen? Did you injure yourself beforehand?

    It can happen spontaneously in young people, more usually boys but obviously not in this case.

    Yeah, what Helenia said basically, people who are tall and slim are prone as well, which apparently I am. It happened when I was sleeping, so definitely no injuries

    HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHHAA

    was it balls successful. Went back to the doctors the next day and my lung had collapsed again, ended up having to spend a month in hospital, had countless aspirations and a drain and a major operation, lost loads of weight and was constantly in pain and nearly died at one point. but i've been fine for a year now since my last operation

    (was just reading my old threads and I felt like updating you all)
