Exclamation Lung problem

Hey guys! Not sure if this is the appropriate section for this discussion but here goes.
Recently, I've been having some lung problems. No changes in my smoking habits, or to my rig . .not the charcoal, tobacco, water, new hose etc.
When I wake up in the morning I start coughing bad. If I try to smoke before I stop coughing, my lungs sting and hurt and I start coughing worse. If chill for a couple of hours, suck on a medicinal piece of candy etc . . .I can have a nice session . .and I'm okay.
Same thing with before I go to bed. I get shortness of breath and I start coughing bad - smoking is out of the question.
Anyone know what this is and how can I stop it? pls don't tell me to stop as I can't/won't .. . just some tips to heal myself.

have you considered seeing a Dr first? maybe you have an infection or something and the smoking is making it worse. when it comes to your health you should never hesitate to get check out.

If nothing about your setup changed then I recommend you go to the doctor and get checked out. Don't wait it off you don't want your condition to worsen.

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.

Dr. time. I'd also try to not smoke later in the evening or smoke a few hours before you go to bed. If I smoke a few hours before I fall asleep I wake up with serious chest pains.

ya you got the crabs. Nahh but really go see a doctor they are all right. its no joke especially if your going to or at least attempt to continue smoking. really this happened to a buddy of mine, didnt think it was anything and he wound up having a severe ******* bronchitis and was hospitalized.. no joke.

..oh and when you go to the doctor dont BS him, tell him exactly what ur smoking and how much.

Most respiratory infections can be seriously agitated if not complicated by irritants like smoke/smog. Also if you smoke with friends many respiratory infections are either airborne or fluid based precautions and can be very easily transfered through the interactions that you have when sharing. It also sounds like you might have something like pneumonia because the mucus seems to be settling when you're lying down which is most likely why you have these coughing problems when you're trying to sleep or waking up.

See your physician as soon as possible and stop smoking until you do. You could have a respiratory infection that becomes irritated by the smoking which can worsen the condition and if it is left untreated it may cause irreversible damage to your lungs and in severe cases can cause respiratory arrest leading to death. Your breathing is not something to be taken lightly. If you notice your having a difficult time breathing do not wait, go to the emergency room immediately.

HP members are so smart. I agree go to the doc. OR if you are the courageous type, you can self diagnose at web md, but I recommend against it.

Nice to see a MD also smoking shisha! I'm a nurse (ER RN) and sometimes feel "my bad" for smoking, but I also figure something's gotta kill ya right? LOL I always tell my female friends, just to get them going "If the cancer don't get me... the women drivers will!" Plus, who wants to live the last 10-20 years of their lives in a nursing home right? LOL

definitely refrain from hookah in the meantime, I would suggest maybe a filtered ciggy for a nicotine substitute. also, what is your smoking environment like? I spent a summer in eastern France extremely humid and these sweaty water droplets were dripping and running down the inside of the windows...every morning I hacked up this watery red phlegm...sometime the smoking environment can be a factor.
