Painful to breathe in?

I am a 20 year old female that weighs 137 pounds and I’m 5”5. I currently have asthma and take an albruteral inhaler along with other medications such as esclilopram and busprione for anxiety.

Recently, I have been having pain when breathing in. The pain is severe all around my throat, ears, and upper chest area. It almost feels like someone is squeezing my neck very hard with sharp, sore pain. It does not hurt when I swallow. It also gets worse when I bend down, lay down, or sit.

I have tried my inhaler with no relief, TUMS with no relief, and Tylenol with no relief. I can’t afford or have time to go to a doctor or anything about this..  Anyone know what might be going on? Would appreciate it a bunch! Thank you!

I there. Has it gotten any better? Pleurisy comes to mind. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/diseases/21172-pleurisy Inflammation in your lungs can cause that. A virus or bacteria can trigger it. Let me know how you are doing!
