Hi, I'm not really sure what is going on with your lungs, but considering your background in working with certain industries, there might very well be something there. Did you work with a lot of fine particulates. I do know that if you inhale fine powders or fibers or vapours, that over time you can do damage to your lungs. Some fine particulates can cause specific lungs diseases, such as silicosis (working with silica powders), or berylliosis (working with beryllium powders). This is something you would have to discuss with a pulmonary specialist. Considering that you are symptom free is a good sign. but it is good to followup if you have any concerns.
