Unhappy Hi im new here, need help asap lung pains/rib pains/ back pain.

I just signed up because of lately ive been having lung pain. Im a 20 year old male and also im a smoker. Lately my lungs have been hurting me. Its usually the bottom of my lungs by my lower rib cage. Today was really weird though, I was laughing really hard and the my lungs felt like they overly expanded and hit my rib cage, and all of a sudden it felt like the back of my rib cage stuck together, it was really painfull. Also as of lately ive been having really bad back pain, to the point were its almost unbearable. It always feels sore. I also have stomach ulcers and have been taking nexium to make them heal. If anyone can help me please do, when ever I go to the doctor it seems like he does not know whats going on.

EDIT- i forgot to add that it sometime feels like my left lung is rubbing against my lower rib cage. It feel like its inflamed.

Hi Jasonco, I've had kinda the same pain too. I've never smoked though. I have UILD, but sometimes I get this weird like cramp? in my back, both the left n right sides, feels like my lungs are sticking either to my back or my ribs, usually gets worse if i move around. If I take a potassium capsule, it goes away, not all the time, but this seems to help. None of my Dr's have a clue what it is, nor does my pulmonogist. It hasn't bothered me for awhile, my luck since mentioning it, it will come back today.

Yea I have almost the same thing but I get sharp pains on the lower parts of my lungs. I am so confused and depressed about it right now.
