Every once in a while I get a sharp pain in my chest every time I inhale. It hurts a LOT, like I'm being stabbed with a screw driver. I have to breath short breaths, only breathing till it hurts, and each breath can get a little longer then the one before. Like I'm easing into a full breath, then it stops hurting. The onset seems totally random too.
I remember when I was really young, when this started, my doctor said something about it being a cartilage build up in my chest. So he popped my back and it went away for a while. It comes and goes, I get my back popped by a friend and it's gone for a while. But I would like to know what it's called, because I can't find anything under "cartilage build up in chest (or back)"
Thanks! Sorry if this is the wrong spot for this question, I was looking around in the forum list for a while trying to find "chest pain" or the similar.
