Re: Popping Sound when Breathing In
Have you had any sort of recent injury or taken any sort of a hit to the chest area?i am only asking as what you have described really kind of sounds like a possible symptom of actually having some free air between the skin and the ribs,or free air between the outer surface of the lungs and the underside of the ribs.either way,this really does need to be evaluated by your doc for the possible cause of this sound.they call it subcutaneous air,it is usually present when someone has some sort of trauma to the chest wall area that causes a very fine leak in the lung.or a penetrating wound to the chest that causes the outside air to get into that space.
At the very least here,i think a trip to your doc would be in order just to see where this sound is actually originating from.it could also actually be IN the lungs as a possible infection of some sort that is just making that sound upon an inspiration of air.
who knows,but the thing is,it is not a 'normal" type of sound to have when you breathe in so it needs to just be looked into.just make an appt with your doc.just by listening to your lungs at various spots,your doc should be able to at least pin down where this is comming from.good luck and please let me know what you find out,K? **
