I have a burning sensation in my lungs with some pain. It is hard to breathe a little while my lungs are burning. They aren't congested and I haven't been sick. This has been going on for a few months now. The doctor thought it was gerd, but I also get chest pains sometimes (an EKG came back normal). I've been taking Prilosec, but it doesn't seem to be working; neither do Tums. Can anyone tell me what this might be? Also, my sons parakeet died of some sickness shortly before I had symptoms--could it be possible that the sickness was contagious to humans?
