After starting to quit smoking, some people experience pains in the lungs. To tell the truth, I didn’t have this experience during the process of stopping cigarette smoking.
But by doing some research, I have found out that this happens. That is because different people have a body that responds to the lack of smoke in the lungs in different ways.
In this article, I am going to tell you about how to deal with the lung pain after you quit smoking.
As mentioned earlier, not all smoking quitting people has the same experience on their body after quitting smoking.
And with the pains, many people are afraid that it is the lung cancer or something. They start to panic.
But sometimes, this kind of pain has nothing to do with tumors at all. It might be just illusion.
Sometimes, people have illusions about this kind of conditions after reading other people’s experience.
Sometimes, it is related to stress and anxiety that are experienced in the process of quitting.
For all of these reasons, you need to reassure yourself that you lungs are okay in the first place. Otherwise, it might get worse.
The best way to do that is go to a doctor and have an x-ray check.
Most of the time, it will show that you lungs are great. Nothing wrong with them. If this is the case, then you need to do further check on your heart because if the pain comes from the heart, it often is mistakened as from the lung.
When your heart is found okay, then you need to check if you have cough caused by cold or something.
If you are assured that the pain is not due to cough, then what you need is to clear your lungs effectively, which is coming in the next part of this article.
Clear your lungs up
If you feel like coughing, then cough it out. At the beginning, you will find that the thing is dirty. But as time goes, it will clear up.
Breathe deeply. Inhale until you can not any more and make sure your stomach humps. Then exhale until you can not any more. This will supply as much oxygen as possible to the blood cells of your lungs and help them recover as soon as possible.
Drink water. Water can speed up the circulation of fluid in our body. Metabolism, as it is known, can discharge the bad things out of the body quickly.
Another way to accelerate metabolism and thus clear the lungs up is exercising regularly. Make sure to do exercises in a place where the air is fresh.
Now that you know how to deal with lung pain after quitting smoking, get started doing them now with some tweaking if your body needs some time to adjust.
Your lungs will fresh up and become anew pretty soon. Enjoy the fresh air they will provide to your body!
