There are several possibilities. If it happens with inhalation only, it could be pleurisy. This is caused when the lung rubs on the inside of a sack that the lung is in.The sack is called the pleura. There is normally a kind of lubricant that is between the lung and the pleura.

This is only one of many.

Pain in the chest and shortness of breath.?!

You are describing a MI (Myocardial Infarction), which is a heart attack.

If this happens again, you should call 911.

I had dealt with too many people that ignored the signs and died.

Feel better.

Addition, regardless of what JEFF says....pleurisy isn't taught as part of EMS training. Notice he said EMS, not EMT.Health Question & Answer
