I think what you are experiencing might be related to a stretching and strain to the intercostal muscles of the rib cage rather than the lungs. This will occur if you are breathing well beyond what you are used to, or if you haven't pushed the envelop in a while.
I would recommend the check-up though just to make sure there aren't any other problems.
