My right side (from my perspective) feels really funny during forced exhalations. There's no pain...just a couple bumps or thumps that I feel under the upper right ribcage. When I sit upright it is barely noticeable, but when I slump over and breathe it is very noticeable. It feels like something is collapsing or shutting. I am 23 and have smoked for 2 years on and off, plus a long history of asthma too. Could it be related to either of those factors? Is this a normal sensation or reason for concern? I have no other symptoms. Some days it is worse than others...I think it might have something to do with the barometric pressure. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
