Unhappy I here sounds in my left lung

,Hello,im new here and have searched the web for answers to my question as to what could be going on in my left lung. I have had no luck at all. So i thought ask the people who by chance be able to offer up some advise. So here goes,For the last several months almost more like a year i can just be siting in my chair on the computer or reading,watching t.v, putting makeup on or whatever. I here a coarse sort of crackle sound audibly coming form my left lung. I can raise my arm's or switch positions and it is still there. It is not everyday but is at least 5 days a wk that i here it. My daughter has heard it sitting next to me. I feel fine and occasionally have an annoying dry cough,I have not been sick or on antibiotics for any reason in more than a year. So i take the complaint to my doctor and naturally he hears nothing. He says all sounds good and clear with good breath sounds. I tell him what i told you all here and he doesn't seem the least bit concerned because he here's nothing. I am thankful i do not here this sound in my lung all day everyday but i know it is clearly something not rite going on. Most of the time i only here it in the morning time and sometimes at bed time. I am just frustrated and don't know what to do about this. I am also on medicaid and go to a clinic that helps low income people. And yes,i do smoke cigarettes and have had not had a chest x~ray in i do not even remember when. Thank you in advance if anyone can enlighten me i greatly appricate it. Thank you,oh,and im a 46 year old female.

Re: I here sounds in my left lung

You may have extra fluid in your lungs. What does the sound sound like?

Re: I here sounds in my left lung

I would ask Dr for a chest xray. This has been going on a long time and must be pretty loud for your daughter to hear it. The dry cough is most likely related and an xray should provide some clues. If it is normal, a CT scan might be helpful to rule out pulmonary fibrosis, scarring of the lung, that can occur for a variety of reasons. Pulmonary function tests may be helpful as well if no answers are readily obtained.
