For the past couple of months I have had these stabbing pains like a side ache when you run. At first it was speratic, now it seems almost constant. Advil does not help. I don't know if it is lung or kidney related. I am in otherwise good health. I am 47,
The same thing has been happening to me for years.
I will be fine then the next moment it's hard to breath and I'm getting sharp pains in my shoulder and chest area.
I've been tested for heart problems but they have come back negative.
Doctors say it could be the lining of my lungs, but no one will tell me for sure. But also I am much younger than you, being 17.
It's so annoying to deal with and causes me so much pain.
Good luck getting an answer from a doctor.
