Constant urge to breathe deeply + Pain in left chest

Hello everyone.

Since a few months already I permanently have some kind of urge to breathe in deeply, because I someow feel like I don't get enough air (Even if I probably do). Once I managed to satisfy that urge (Which doesnt happen that often - I actually have difficulties in breathing in in a way that satisfies that urge), I can breathe normally for 1-2minutes, before repeating the whole process. Sometimes, mostly in the first months, it doesnt trouble me that much, but sometimes, more rarely, I need to stop everything I was doing and just concentrate on breathing in deeply. Those last weeks the urge got even stronger, and since a few days my left chest is hurting quite a bit, and when breathing in deeply, my whole thorax/chest is hurting a little bit. My parents always said that this is just some weird quirck, but I do fear that there's something more behind it.

Also, since a long time, too, my stomach generates extraordinary amounts of gas, noticeably blowing my belly until I, uh, let it out. It's not bothering me as much as the first problem, but I wonder if it has something to do with it?

I would really appreciate help.

Kind regards.

PS: Sorry for my bad english

Also, just for info: I'm a 16 year old male. I'm not doing much sport, but I don't see any reason why I should have major problems...
