 For the last few months I have been having a rattling in my chest. It does not happen all of the time. But I can tell it is in my right lung. Sometimes when I take a deep breath I have a real sharp pain goes thru the right side of my chest to my back and after the breath the pain is over. I also have a burning in my chest at times like I have been breathing freezing cold air or running for a while. I have also been short of breath. I have sang in our church for years and have had no problem being short winded but now I get short of breath after about 2 lines. And sometimes my whole chest hurts and I don't know how to describe the pain. A friend of mine is a Respatory Therapist and she game some Xophenix and another type of the same thing to use in a breathing machine together. I did that and did get better for about a week and now I am back to the rattle in my chest. And I cough but do not have a cold. Can anyone tell me what this is or have any ideas. I would appreciate it.

Hi and welcome to Healingwell :) You need to see a doctor to get to the bottom of this. They can do xrays and make sure there is nothing wrong with your lungs. Do you smoke? It sort of sounds like Pluerisy but I'm not a doctor.

No I have never smoked..And that is why I am so puzzled about this..If I was sick a lot I might could understand but I feel fine most of the time and do not have a cold or any sinus problems. But the rattle that I feel is mostly nerve racking and worries me a lot. I have had a few people in my family die with lung cancer. I don't know if i should start with a regular MD or go to a lung DR.

I don't know your financial situation nor you insurance info but as a starter it's best to begin the journey with your primary doctor. If they feel it's something that is more serious then they can refer you to a specialist. Hopefully it's nothing that can't be cured or helped.

Thank you for your help..Today has been the worst day so far. The rattling is with every breath in and out instead of just inhaling. I have listened to my lungs with a stethescope and at the end of a breath it is a squeeking sound..Like something being closed off. It feels like a rattle inside but it doesn't sound like a rattle. I don't have asthma or any health problems that i know of..But i did take a breathing treatment a couple of weeks ago when i was having trouble and it helped. i didn't have any more trouble for a week and then i noticed the rattle a couple times a day the first day or so then gradually has gotten to today. And i can't cough up anything.
