Something crawling

I would like to know if anybody else feels like there is something in their lungs that is crawling. It can be painful at times, it is a very weird feeling. Usually it happens when I’m doing something like walking or exercising, cooking, etc. I asked my doctor about it and he thought I was crazy – said he never heard of it. Gave me Motrin for muscle spasms and no the Motrin did not do anything.
