This is a very complicated history. It is not clear from what you have described what is causing what. The best approach would be to see your physician and address each of these problems. It is important to see what is due to your lungs, what is due to muscles of your chest wall or to ribs. Only through a good physical examination and perhaps some tests can answers be given to these questions.
