You keep referring to "it"
What are you referring to?
This is Dr. David
if you are having pain or trouble breathing in a certain position, it could be due to a rib fracture or fluid outside of your lungs or diaphram problems
you need to go to the ER or see a doctor right away and get a chest xray or chest CT scan
and pulmonary function tests and heart testing to see why you are having these symptoms
it is rare, but blood clots in the chest can cause shortness of breath and chest pains and difficulty breathing.
do you have an ER or urgent care center close to you?
