Lung pain after intense exercise
An_206808 posted:
Hello, i recently quit smoking (it's been a little over a week), and i started exercising again. After a relatively intense cardio work out, my lungs began to hurt when i take deep breaths. I only smoked for 3 months. I was expecting my lungs to be normal after a night of sleep but they still cause a very mild pain on normal breaths and a sharp pain in the upper regions of both lungs on deep breaths.
If i never smoke again will my lungs eventually turn back to normal? i know lung damage from smoking is irreversible but i'm hoping that i can eventually start running again without causing pain.
