I am a 53 year old male who has had several occasions over the past 15 years where it felt as though I suddenly had a small fluid mass in the center of my chest, in my lungs. It always felt as though I could cough it out, but it never worked. Also over these last 15 years or so, I've had occasional crackling sounds coming from my lungs as I breathe out (especially as I tried to sleep... I could hear it quite clearly). About six months ago I had another of these fluid sensations in the chest, and it's pretty much there steady all of the time, and now the crackling is constant, and very loud at night. Anybody have any idea what may be causing this?
