Dry sore lungs. Non smoker

For about 4 months now, my lungs have been feeling funny. The only way I can describe it is the feeling you sometimes get after eating ice cream; sort of a cold, dry achy sensation. Its a dull pain that lasts all day and sometimes randomly gets worse and becomes sharp. My chest sometimes feels very tight and its hard to breath. It hurts more when I inhale then exhale.
I have a cough, its usually dry, short and unproductive.
With this lung pain, my throat hurts too, but its not sore. It feels like something is stuck in it, like a pop-corn seed (I don't eat pop corn). This feeling worsens when I have a dry throat.
I have pollen allergies, but the lung ache persists when I take allergy meds.
I also am a non smoker. My lungs seem to ache more when I am around second hand smoke.

No. but today the feeling seem to be more in my throat then lungs. My throat is really dry. I wonder if it's just an allergen I don't know about.

Are you seeing an Allergist?  You can always be retested if you think this is all related to an allergy of some sort.  

I would be seeing your physician for an assessment ASAP to help you sort all this out.
