Re: Constant lung pain for months after flu
You should have your lungs tested by a lung specialist. If you hurt when you breath or have constant on and off burning anywhere around the lung area you need have it evaluated. I had the same thing happen to me, my doc said you just have live with it if it don't go away. There was no urgency for me to be seen by a lung specialist which I will have to request on my own. I wouldn't wait, you don't want further damage to occur in the future that can be avoided. Also if any inhalers will allow your lung to heal or prevent pain, the lung doctor would prescribe them. I have had normal chest xray and no wheezing, serveral doctors listen to me breath seems fine. But doctors don't do pulmunary lung tests, they miss things, and a chest xray sure doesn't show everything. A ct scan has 3 years of radiation, equivelent being in the sun 3 years so they do this only if really needed. I'd see a lung doctor ASAP, call them set up the appointment, don't wait.
