Common Questions and Answers about Sharp pain chest cough

Does anyone know what it might be. I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> at times too. Im pretty sure it is not cardiac related. Its not really bad just been there for a week or so now.
Avatar_f_tn i have been having a chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> for the last 2 or 3 months, its a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that happens on either side of my chest that only lasts about 2-7 seconds, this happens a couple of times per day, a doctor said i had tendinitus in my left shoulder from being a cashier, but it's both sides and it's really painful
Avatar_n_tn It was on my left side slightly over the middle of the collar bone, and has now moved to my right side in same location over the collar bone. There is a second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> my breast area of my chest. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is not sensitive when you touch the outside of the body. It is only on the inside. Can you help?
Avatar_m_tn Hello all. I'm Kylie. I have currently have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that I can also feel in my back and up into the underside of the jaw. It does get worse when I cough or breathe in. The sharp pain is pretty frequent and it's been like this for about 3-4 days now. About a month ago I was experiencing shortness of breath so I went to the doctor and she said I had asthma due to allergies (I've always had really bad allergies) and prescribed me an advair inhaler.
Avatar_n_tn My cough is best decribed as a painful dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>. Sometime, I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> up flegm and its really yellowish in ears hurt sometimes but not always...everytime I swallow, I feel like Im swallowing tiny razors down my throat. I have a swollen lymph node on the ride side of my neck but not on the left...I dont beleive any other parts of my body are swollen (armpits/goin) at this time. I believe that my lypmh node grew in size within the past day.
Avatar_n_tn She is always complaining of her chest hurting, and sometimes she says that she gets realy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> pains that last from a 1 to 3 minutes. The pain has been there for sometime, I believe for about a month. I'm not sure what to do, she says that the sharp pains are coming even more now. Atleast once a say, and she sometimes gets short of breath.
1542723_tn?1294451038 QUOTE: "Sometimes walk up the stairs 30 times, which gets my sysyem going but don't suffer any pains. In the recent freezing temps we have had in UK I have walked and jogged in the park and had no problems". But why do I get pains when I relax in bed or twist or stretch myself? Also when I cough I get the pain in the sternum area.
Avatar_m_tn When I breath or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> just above my left breast..Theres even times when I move the pain is there. The more I move around the pain gets worse. Can you tell me what this might be?
Avatar_m_tn Just today, i started feeling a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my upper chest to my lower throat. It mainly hurts when i breathe, and it also really hurts when i cough. I think it may have been something i have recently eaten today, but this pain has continued for a few hours, and its keeping me awake.
Avatar_n_tn i have been getting sharp pains in my lest side for 3 or 4 month now, i saw cardiologist and he said it was some kind of infection and gave me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> Killer and now i started to have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on the RIGHT side with dry cough. What should i do?
Avatar_n_tn I'm getting a very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my back and by my heart when I breath. I don't have any cough, just this pain even when I move. Could this be a collasped lung?
Avatar_f_tn I have a variety of things going on here. I'll try to keep it as simple as possible. About 4 weeks ago I began to have a dry, unproductive cough that resulted in a dry/sore throat, as well as a hoarse voice. About 3 days into it, the cough became VERY productive. After about 2 full weeks, the coughing become MUCH LESS FREQUENT, but still there. In fact, I STILL have a cough (not NEAR as bad as before....but I still do have to cough).
Avatar_n_tn it sounds like you have a hiatius herna.
Avatar_n_tn Should state that it ranges from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> to burning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, but always in the same spot. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> doesn't increase/decrease to the touch or pressure (sneezing, coughing has no effect) or stretching the area. Thanks.
Avatar_m_tn I hv <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in chest which is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> and i fear to breath sometimes which stays max for 1 min. I got my ecg and echo done , it was normal. Recently i got my asthma test as i was getting little cough in the morning and evening with thick substance, which is also ok. Till th ... [More] e time i got the results for asthma my doc gave me Alvesco Ciclesonide en 200mcg puffer. Last from 2 months i am taking that during this period i didn't get any chest pain.
Avatar_n_tn I mentioned the chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and fatigue to my doctor a few months ago when I went in for a pesky <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>, but she basically brushed me off like I was an inconvience. She told me that I was tired and had pain because of the cough, but I persisted that I had these things way before the cough and felt that they were unrelated. She sent me to get labs to check TSH level and make sure I wasn't anemic and that was the end of that.
Avatar_n_tn I have chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> that comes and goes for the last 10 years. I also have a very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on my lower left abdomen. I have hip pain and knee pain and back pain the doctor or ER can't tell me what the cause is. the only thing they say is that I have hypoinflation in my lungs but can't tell me why. thay did a cat scan of my chest and ex-ray and ekg which only showed inflation in my lungs. My lab results were not normal either. can you please help me.
Avatar_n_tn I have a popping in my chest when I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> really hard. I also have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my chest on my left side like where my heart is but not on the other side. The pain is only there when I move weird, like if I'm crunching down or if I swing around quickly or stand really straight. I do smoke but there is no wheezing or blood or pain when I breathe. Could this be lung cancer? I think it's getting worse, what should I do?
Avatar_n_tn About 2 months ago I had an abnormal ekg. I went to the ER two different times with chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and had normal ekgs there and my enzymes and Xray was normal. I have weird symptoms like body pain with throbs around my body that either feel like spasms or twitching. I had a normal stress test. have recently had more pains in my chest they are on the left side they are sharp sometimes. I am now worried it could be a heart valve issue. I have a slight cough but not breathing problems.
Avatar_m_tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. Another possibility that can explain the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is pericarditis. However all these conditions cause other symptoms too like fever, cough, breathlessness etc. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar_f_tn My boyfriend has been having an achy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in his left chest and breast area for the past two months. It started when he developed a cold with a really bad dry cough. The pain has spread to his left armpit and the middle of the left side of his back. Occasionally he will get a sharp pain for a second or two towards the middle of his chest. He will also get light headed and dizzy when the achy pain gets really strong. He has been to the emergency room 2 times.
Avatar_f_tn It's an uncomfortable feeling right in the centre of my chest, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I also get a really wierd feeling of the blood running cold on the inside of both my ankles. It happens both when im warm and cold or when I wear shoes or barefoot. Any idea why this happens??
Avatar_f_tn I have had a chest cold for six days now but beginning yesterday when I occassionally get that long, drawn out gaggy type of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>, I get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span>, very painful stinging <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my upper back almost at the base of my neck. I actually thought for a moment I was being stung by a bee or some other creature. It has continued today but I have been just forcing my...
Avatar_f_tn "CHEST pain"... during my first round of tx in '09, early on I developed chest pain/ pressure/tightness, difficulty breathing, dizziness, weakness and feeling faint. Cardiologist who tested me and found my heart to be normal. My symptoms were brought on by a swing to hyper-throidism which is common when undergoing tx. Dosage of thyroid med was reduced. The hemolytic anemia caused severe shortness of breath. Also anxiety and near panic. My doseages were not reduced.
Avatar_n_tn over the last few days i get these sudden stabs of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my chest when the pvc hits ( i think)..ive been checked out a few months ago and all clear, but these sharp jabs are really hurting..when i exercise i also get a similar pain in the top part of my heart..very sharp but constant instead of shooting...i don't get short of breath or anything but its really freaky and it sends like a jolt of electricity through my chest any of you fellow pvcers get these feelings??
Avatar_n_tn It is now June and I am still feeling pain in my chest, sometimes when I move the worng way, other times when I am lying still. Some times I am awaken at night by the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the side of my chest. Other times when I don't have the pain I feel a sort of hollowness in my chest, which may simply be a feeling that occurs when the pain which i have become used to is not there. Do you recomment returning to my doctor to order more tests, or does this sound like intercostal never pain to you?
Avatar_f_tn I have a major pain in left breast and surrounding area-my doctor said I might have pulled a muscle from coughing (bad smokers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> plus had bronchitis) this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> really hurts-I can not get up from bed without holding my chest and trying to stop the pain should I wait and see if it heals itself?
