Doctor

A:   Thanks for consulting us. Sharp pain with breathing difficulty in a Asthmatic could be due to Pulmonary infection. Involvement of Pleura, a thin serous layer covering the lungs can cause such pain. Pneumonia with pleurisy can present like this. Investigations like CBP, CXR, etc., are helpful in differentiating the diseases. Consult Plumonologist or chest physician for further advice.
