I am a 38 yr/old male, who smoked for about 5 years in my late 20's. I have not smoked in about 10 years, however, I am getting a burning feeling in my lungs and some shortness of breath while talking... It's very strange, since I am active (play soccer, exercise regularly) I am used to lungs burning when strenoulsly exercising but not just while resting.
I have no other symptoms, in terms of post nasal drip or acid reflux, but my symptoms appeard after being sick with a bad cold and have persisited for about a month, slightly getting better (in terms of a cough on exhale) but the burning sensation still remains. I do not have a productive cough, more of a breathless feeling that leads to a cough.
Anyone else out there in the same boat? What should be the next course of action?
