    Hi! I’ve been a long time lurker and decided to post since there’s a bunch of seasoned smokers here! Pls don’t throw stones at me.

    Anyways, I’m feeling weird about my right lung right now but currently cannot afford ANOTHER trip to the ER. I’ve been dealing with random lung inflammation but it’s gone down a lot according to my pulmonary doctor. She also said my spirometry test was excellent. However, she said the tests showed that I possibly have very slight asthma. Not enough for her to want to prescribe me with an inhaler due to my anxiety and the issue of it making me even more anxious. A week or two after I decided to lightly smoke. Before my lung issues I was hitting my bong or bubbler every day. I haven’t picked up my bong or bubbler in almost two whole months. I’ve smoked prolly a total of 3 times since but small hits. I got some Tora Bora for my pain (stomach pain) and tried to use it in my VaporBaker Tech 1.0 dry herb vaporizer. I was ok yesterday but upon waking up this morning, my right lung has been bothering me. I’m breathing ok but I’m in a little bit of pain. It hurts to lay on my back. The pain is on the right side of my back, shoulder, my rib cage area and close to my collar bone. The pain radiates. I’ve been taking CBD oil to help with it but I’m afraid it may be a lung collapse. Considering that I may possibly have asthma, do any asthma users have this issue?

    TLDR: Vaped with my VaporTech Baker 1.0 last night at 350 degrees while on my tummy, experiencing right side lung pain that radiates from neck to lower right rib. Pain started from early this morning til now but has not worsened. Can’t afford another ER trip. Does this sound like a lung collapse or asthma + vaping?

    Edit: for those of you browsing, I did not have a lung collapse. They did an x-ray and decided that it was actually just chest inflammation.
  2. my right lung collapse and I fell those symptom you describe"It hurts to lay on my back. The pain is on the right side of my back, shoulder, my rib cage area and close to my collar bone". in my case I was having problem to breathe and feel tired. collapse lung is not a joke you can die. go to hospital leave doubts
  3. A lung collapse would impede breathing in a pretty severe way. I don't think it's that.
    Are you a regular (tobacco) smoker by chance?
    What you're describing sounds like what a friend of mine once had, ended up being a blood clot in their lung.
  4. :( Nooo I’ve never smoked tobacco. Only weed and I’ve only been an every day smoker(of weed only) for a year.
  5. How bad was your pain? Also did you have any pain the day before the lung collapse or was it random? Lastly, are you a skinny, tall male?
  6. I mean look...shit happens right?
    Smoking weed, while not nearly as bad...can cause negative/irritant effects on your lungs.
    If you have some kind of infection, opening up your lungs and breathing in warm/hot dry air can spread it.
    Weed doesn't really cause issues, it's just about the method...combustion is just, not a great one...and person to person you can be more sensitive to it.
    You can definitely exacerbate a condition with it.
    Collapsed lung. Blood clot on the lung. Acute upper respiratory infection.
    All potential things you'd probably want to throw a few bucks at a scan for.
  7. Yeah, mine did and it hurt, it was the right side too.
    I stuck a tube in me and drain a big gob out of the surrounding lung area which allowed it to open back up.
    Mine is caused by a failing liver
  8. I don't remember a pneumothorax being related to having asthma. I guess it's possible but it must be extremely rare for a lung to collapse because of asthma. Look at your chest (or have someone else look) as you take a deep breath and see if your chest wall moves symmetrically as you breath. If you don't have a stethoscope have someone put their ear to your chest and listen for breath sounds, they should be about the same on both sides. A collapsed lung will cause shortness of breath and your heart rate and breathing rate will probably be faster than normal. You would probably be in more distress than it sounds like you are.
