Why Are My Lungs Burning?

Why Are My Lungs Burning?

Get lung treatment at AFC Urgent Care

A painful, burning sensation in the lungs can be nerve-wracking, especially when you don’t know what’s causing it. That’s why our team at AFC Urgent Care Cleveland wants to offer some insight into what could be causing that uncomfortable burning sensation.

What Causes Your Lungs to Burn?

When you start to feel your lungs to burn, it can make you feel nervous and unsure about what is going on with your body.

Pneumonia, bronchitis and other respiratory infections are usually to blame for lungs burning, especially around this time of year. In our area of Tennessee, we are prone to wide temperature swings and pollen changes that may contribute as well. You may also occasionally feel that sensation when out in the cold, particularly when exercising in cold temperatures.

Causes of Lung Issues

  • Infections
  • Asthma
  • Chest muscle pain
  • COPD
  • Acid reflux
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Pleuritis
  • Pneumothorax
  • Cancer
  • Costochondritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Heart conditions
  • Esophageal issues
  • Esophagitis

Is It Bronchitis?

Bronchitis, which is sometimes referred to as a chest cold, is an inflammation in the lining of bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from the lungs.

Fortunately, with some self-care techniques like getting plenty of rest and staying hydrated, as well as some medications to help soothe the symptoms of bronchitis, you can get to feeling as good as new sooner rather than later.

Symptoms of Bronchitis

  • Chronic, dry or phlegm cough
  • Chest pressure
  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Fatigue
  • Malaise
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Runny nose
  • Shortness of breath
