Did the doctor confirm using an xray you don't have pneumonia? Do you have a cough? There is something called pleurisy which can hurt your lungs when you breathe, but both pneumonia and pleurisy are accompanied by a cough. Behind your lungs are your kidneys, is it possible that when you breathe your lungs are hurting your kidneys? Therefore it would feel like your lungs hurting but it's not. Just an idea if the doc is ruling out lung problems.

Is it hard to get a breath? Is it like you are breathing through a straw? Iam thinking if it is hard to get a breath maybe it is asthma? I wonder also about exposure to TB? I agree that they should have gotten a chest Xray and TB skin test.

Hi Mary607,
Well, you don't have the symptoms of TB really unless you have a cough and night sweats and fatigue.  It may just be the asthma with some inflammation. It may just be a virus. There are a lot weird viruses this year that hang on and have symptoms that come and go. If you get a fever and/or cough or if you feel a sharp pain when you breath in, or yellow or green sputum then revisit your doctor. Sorry I can't be help at this point.
