If it felt like rice crispies were popping in your lungs, then it's most likely pneumonia. That symptom can come and go, it doesn't have to be constant. Rattling in the lungs when you're sick isn't a good sign, even if it's not pneumonia, and you need to see your doctor very soon or go to urgent care, especially if you get a fever. You can take something with guaifenisen in it (like mucinex) to help your lungs get some of the crud out more easily, but you should still see someone.
Do you have a fever or asthma? Did you have a virus before this? Does it hurt went you breathe in? Depending on your symptoms it could be bronchitis or pneumonia. But if you don't have pain with breathing or no fever it may be asthma like possibly to due to an allergy. If it continues you may want the doctor to listen to your lungs. take care,
did you ever find out what it was? Do you still have symptoms? I am having something similar but has been going on over 1 year and no one seems to know what is wrong. I have had lung scope, stomach scope, ears nose and throat scope, ct scans, blood test and nada!!! I am starting to freak!!!
