Once every few months or so I'll wake up in the middle of the night with tremendous pain in my ribcage/ lungs area. It feels like I'm being repeatedly stabbed in several areas and hurts so bad I'm almost to the point of tears and I have a very high pain tolerance, and whatever it is stays for hours. Now whatever this pain is, is coming more frequently. I even had it start to happen while I was taking a late shower once. Sometimes taking an inhaler helps. I'm only 17 and most posts I've seen from people who have had similar problems are at a much older age and have kids and tend to have something already. I'm very active and engaged with sports I also eat fairly healthy. If anyone has any advice I will be extremely grateful, because I am completely stuck on what to do. And quite frankly I don't trust google which has directed me to several lung cancer pages, which honestly scares the hell out me.
