OK so to make this quick, i can NOT get to a doctor at this time, 2 minutes ago i went to lie down on my back, left, and right sides and it felt like my rib cage was crushing my right lung. i am not overweight if anything its the exact opposite, and i dont recall breaking it anytime soon...and when i take really deep breaths i think i can feel my lung pressing against and trying to squeeze through my rib cage

It is not a choice. U can't feel a lung like that ~~ but your symptoms as stated are not good----
Anything from a strain to a problem with circulation.
I'd suggest an E.R.
This assuming your post is accurate.
This is not an age or weight issue.
Good luck. Pls post back.

We don't give nor should we - nor any site try to figure out this on internet ---
& I am sympathetic to costs of medical care - being from Canada where it is not an issue -- but U need to be seen.

Why won't your family help you? Do they not believe you?
If this has not happened before & you still feel the same way -tell your parents that you need to go. If U believe in your self then insist on a lift or ask for help from some one else or at worst call an ambulance or police. Nothing you shouldn't do, if things are as U wrote.
