    I worked as a nurse for many years and when ever I heard of inspiratory chest pain I think there's a possibility it's pleurisy. The pleura is the sort of sack that covers your lungs. Sometimes a person gets some irritation or perhaps even infection between the lung and the pleura. That causes the sharp pain upon inspiration, or taking in a breath.

    It would be good to see your doctor while it's occurring so that he/she might observe the pain you're having. But if that doesn't happen, just explain the nature of the pain you're experiencing and let your doctor take it from there. I hope you feel better soon!
