Chest Pain After Running Or Walking Long Distances?
Good afternoon. I want to ask why every time I run away or walk too far my lungs hurt so much in the past I have been exposed to dry lung disease does that have anything to do with that?
Good afternoon Key, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Lungs basically can not feel / cause pain so there is no medical term in the form of pain in the lungs, complaints of pain that you feel may be discomfort in the chest, chest pain or shortness of breath. The description of the complaint you feel is very necessary to determine where your complaint might come from and what are the possible abnormalities in the organ. Chances that quite often cause complaints like yours are asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchitis, heart failure, coronary heart disease, or stomach acid disease (GERD).
Likewise with dry lung disease, there is no medical term so it is advisable to re-ask the name of the disease to the doctor who diagnosed you so that it can be determined whether it is true that your lung disease history has an effect on your current complaint or not .
For now, it's highly recommended to check your complaint to the doctor even if it doesn't show up. You may be advised to undergo several examinations to determine the cause such as chest x-rays, lung function tests, heart records, treadmill tests, or other examinations according to doctor's consideration. After that, only can be determined what the diagnosis of your condition, whether this condition is related to the history of your previous illness and how subsequent therapy. If necessary, you can be referred to a specialist in a particular field to ensure you get optimal therapy.
In the meantime, pay attention to how far you walk to cause the complaint and whether the distance is getting shorter or not, and whether more often. If possible, avoid triggers. It is not recommended to do strenuous exercise first until there is another suggestion from your doctor. It is not advisable to take any breath-taking medication or any pain medication without clear doctor's advice.
If the complaint is relapsing and feels very severe or does not improve with rest, it is advisable to immediately go to the hospital emergency room for further treatment.
I hope this helps.
