Hi, I quit smoking cold turkey 5 days ago (Thursday). Friday afternoon I started getting a dull pain in my left side of my back, then it moved to my left chest. It does not hurt when I breath, dance, take a very deep breath or anything like that... but it is very painful if I sneeze or do crunches. (Have no cough and I smoked 4 to 5 a day.) Does anyone know what this is?
hey ok, am no expert or anything but i have just recently given up smoking i am 23 and smoked since i was 13 i used to smoke 15-20 a day, and when i first quit (1 week into) i started having uncomfortable pains in my chest and like most woman i panicked i thought i was dying lol, seriously this lasted for about 2 weeks not continually but on/off, my doctor said it was because my lung were adjusting to no nicotine and they were starting to expand better sounds like that could be what is happening with you! hope i helped jenny
This post helped me. I smoked for 35 years and quit 15 days ago. I am using the patch and it is going very well. I too though, have had some discomfort in my chest and thought it was more oxygen than my body has had in allot of years. Researching, I found this reply. Thanks so much
Its a good thing you want to quit smoke but first thing always keep in mind that if you are an addicted smoker then you have to quit slowly because our body could not except frequent change as result damaged results happened.
I am 35yr old male. Quit smoking 3months ago. Am experiencing pain in chest radiating across left shoulder and arm with tingling sensation. Not coughing at all.Also experiencing pressure in head at different times of day. Anyone else experienced this before?? Doctor reckons its a nerve in my neck and just the way I am sitting at my desk at work ..was not helpful at all
