crackling when taking in a deep breath

I am a 36 year old woman and since 5 years I have been experiencing a “crackling” feeling in my left side, near my diaphragm, sometimes expanding to the right. This happens right after I wake up and I take in a deep breath or if I have relaxed and I take in deep breath.  It almost feels as if a rubber band is stretched to it’s maximum.
I have asked numerous doctors and nobody seems to know what it could be and nobody has suggested any way of exploring where this feeling comes from. Could this be caused by adhesions, and why would I have adhesions in that area? Or could it be my lungs? I have never smoked. Asthma runs in my family. Are there any other people experiencing similar things?
