About Painful Respiration

Painful respiration is discomfort while breathing. Painful respiration can include chest pain, particularly pain that gets worse when you breathe in (inhale) or breathe deeply, and may also be accompanied by shortness of breath or difficulty breathing. Painful respiration can indicate a problem with the lungs, such as pleurisy (a condition that can cause painful respiration due to inflammation of the membranes surrounding the lungs) or a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lung). Respiratory infections, including pneumonia, can also cause painful respiration. Painful respiration may also be caused by a problem with the heart, such as a heart attack or heart failure.
