Is having pain in the lung typical of COPD?

0

Barry Make, MD — Chronic lung pain is not commonly associated with COPD. However, pain can come from the wall of the chest and not directly from the lungs – this in fact can be seen in COPD. Pain in the chest can come from coughing very hard and straining the muscles of the chest. Pain in the chest can be due to a rib fracture from coughing hard. Pain in the back of the chest can come from osteoporosis, or thinning of the bones. Check with your doctor to find out the cause of your pain.Question: I’ve had adult-onset asthma (chronic & severe) for approximately thirty-five years. I’ve been to some of the best doctors in Houston, TX; Temple, TX; and Denver, CO (National Jewish Health). So, as you’d expect, I’m taking the recommended dosages of the latest medications. My chronic excessive mucus is a major concern. I am unable to stop a cough when the mucus begins to block my airways. I cough very deeply and it is very hard to free my airways from the mucus.
