hi, im 21yrs old female.
i noticed recently when ever i turn my upper body i hear noise from my lung.
and a bit of discomfort.
ive been smoking since 2004. i think it has alot to do with smoking.. im trying to cut down.
i hope its nothing serious. but it just wont go away..
i noticed it about a month ago..
i cant quite describe what kind of noise it is.. but it sounds somewhat like im breathing hard when im not breathing(when im turning my upperbody sideways) i hope its not cancer... i really hope its nothing serious.
can anybody help me out please
Its normally called Strider. CarolDiane is right, it is hard to pin down unless you are given tests to determine if its anything more serious then smoker's strider. You would do well for yourself to be checked by xray or better, a CT scan.
i just got results from my x ray today and the doctor said i have a small amount of calcium on my lungs can any one tell me what that means?
I appolgize but, this one really has me stumped. I do know that when you break a bone, it is not uncommon to have a calcium build up around the break. Kinda takes up some of the missing space in between after it is set. But, to be truthful, I really don't know what the calicum would have to adhear to in the lungs.
Hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me also. I worked on a pulmonology floor but have never heard of that.
I also hear it in mine when I turn my upper body and I have never smoked. I also have anxiety as the person before mentioned but not sure how that would have anything to do with... Find any answers? I'm very curious, I've had this for years, I am 28 yrs old.
