Default Re: Lung problem

Don't hesitate, go to the doctor right away. About 6 months ago i woke up one morning and had pain on my left side of my chest all the way to my back and up my shoulder. I put it off throughout the day, went to class, at 2am i started hearing noises coming out of my chest when i was trying to go to sleep. I ended up driving 20 miles to the nearest ER and found out i had a pneumothorax (Hole in my Lung). I live on campus an hour away from my house so it was a pretty interesting drive trying to find the place, especially at 2 clinching my chest, trying to shift gears. I'm 18 years old and never saw it coming, you don't want to put it off, the doctor said if i would have waited till morning my lung may have fully deflated, possibly causing death.
