Lung & Respiratory Disorders / COPD Board Index

I've been reading around several forums for a week now trying to figure out what is going on.
A few days back, I had a "bubble" in the center of my chest, almost like the need to burp. It would go away and come back, but the pressure was so bad it would stop me in my tracks.
This has given way now to constant constricting pressure from the center of my chest outwards. It feels like a lasso is being pulled around my right lung (and to a lesser extent, the left also).
Its gotten to the point now that I find it extremely difficult to sleep.

A few other things noteworthy: I've never so much as had indigestion in my life, but even so, I've taken Prilosec for 5 days now and seen no improvement. I am going to be 23 years old in a week, and I have had no serious health problems in my life.
It does not get better or worse depending on position. Sitting, standing, lying down, on back, on stomach, on side, it all hurts the same.
I haven't been to a doctor at all yet, because I don't have insurance and wanted to feel out whether this could go away soon or if there were ideas on what it could be.

Any help is greatly appreciated....its only been a week and I already don't know what to do with myself.
