    Question Lung pain while sleeping???

    New here.. I have NO pain while awake, but every night for a couple of months now, I get pain in my lungs while I am sleeping. It wakes me up. It is not a sharp pain or unbearable pain, but feels like I have a tight belt around my rib cage and when I change position, it feels like my lungs are stuck in the previous position. It is hard to take a deep breath. But after I am awake for like 30 mins, it is completely gone. Any ideas???

    Re: Lung pain while sleeping???

    Have you had any kind of spine surgery or spinal MRI? Lungs could be just that...lung problems like pulmonary fibrosis...or a muscle problem caused by a spine problem or it could be related to the heart and any other structure in the chest. Have you seen your primary care doc for this and has he/she ruled out lung or heart problems? I would start there as the heart and lungs are pretty essential for life whereas the spine can be dealt with after those are cleared.
