    I woke up about a month ago with a Pneumothorax (hole in my left lung).. happened for no reason.. young, tall, skinny males are main targets.. I am 29, 6'2" 185 lbs.. has been about 2 1/2 weeks since the hole has healed.. but still having a hard time breathing and my anxiety is through the roof as I am used to playing softball 3+ nights a week and cant do anything but sit around and wonder if the pain will come back

    here is some more info... thank you for asking

    My girlfriend is a respiratory nurse and has always told me that tall, skinny, guys are more likely to develop lung problems. I guess this one of the ones she is talking about. Yikes. Good luck. If you have any questions I can relay them to her, I'm sure she'd give you an answer if she knows it.

    Pfft, just drink some Seven Up with some lemon and you'll be fine. Cures everything.
