I get a sharp burning pain (that gets real bad when I breathe deep) in my left lung when I wake up from a long sleep in certain positions, but it goes away as soon as I change my position or simply get up.. its been going on for a year and a half now.. sometimes i can feel something (not really a pain, but just an annoyance) in the same spot when I sit certain ways..

I was scared it could be lung cancer I have an apt monday for a chest x ray

I do dabble with marijuana from time to time and when I was younger (like 10 im 18 now) I had pneumonia and my lung collapsed.

It hasn't really got worse over all this time, but it def has not gotten better.

I'm just looking for a some possibilities b/c I'm going to be soiling my self monday waiting for those results..

any ideas would be greatly appreciated..

thanks again,
