Common Questions and Answers about Sharp pain chest coughing

chest

After an extreme coughing spell (been treated for an upper respiratory infection last week) I felt a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in lower left abdomen. I still have the recurring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> after 2 days. Should I be concerned?
One week after my broncoscopy, I'm experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> pains throughout my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> and side area when I cough. If I am still and dont cough I'm good.
Sometimes i have a small coughing fit, and after one coughing fit, i had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on the right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>. It felt like there was icyhot on my lung, then that feeling faded away after about an hour. But, i still get an occasional sharp pain on my right, sometimes left side in what feels like my lungs. I should also point out that i am a smoker of 4 years.
I seem to get them in my left chest area, a stabbing feeling and the deeper I breathe the greater the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is. It has now moved all around my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> and into the side of my torso and left back and sometimes in my left arm as well... I'm petrified of these pains and they make me extremely stressed. I'm always fearing that they're related to some sort of heart attack thing and I'm going to die... I sometimes shake and get a cold sweat when these pains occur, absolutely terrifying.
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.
Hard coughs and getting up to fast, changing position also cause the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> stab,or dull achey, I had both sides hurt for hours! But felt the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on the left, apparently it's common. Wouldn't worry.
The constant coughing could cause muscle strain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. Sometimes the pleura, the lining of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> cavity and lungs can get inflamed causing pain with coughing referred to as pleuritis. With your symptoms it is likely that the bronchitis has caused consequent pleurisy. Therapy lies in treating the underlying cause and pain killers. So, continue with your medications and take OTC naproxen for relief from pain.
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.
I have a popping in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> when I cough really hard. I also have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> 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?
oh my that sucks!!!! I have to have c-section im not looking foward to the coughing..
I was getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and palpitations (racing heart). They tested my iron stores - Ferritin (18 very low!) and since I started taking an iron supplement, these symptoms went away - poof!
So at this point it only got worse, I was experiencing extreme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> pains in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> constantly, shortness of breath, a heavy chest. The hardest thing I've ever been through in my whole life. Its what I imagine someone who is going through a drug withdrawal to feel like. A long, long agonizing story short I finally met with my family doctor.
I have a major pain in left breast and surrounding area-my doctor said I might have pulled a muscle from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> (bad smokers cough 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?
I started getting this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> localized <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my lower right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> area. Right undermy right breast(I mean right where my breast ends).It is so painful. It started out just hurting when I coughed ..but now it hurts all the time. It is the worst when I sneeze, cough, breath deeply or move in certain positions.But it is a constant pain..it doesn't go away at all. Luckily I'm hardly coughing at all anymore.I'm also getting very light headed especially apon standing .What could this be??
Hi, just recently after meals, ive been getting a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> right in the middle of my chest about in line with my nipples. every few breaths i get the pain which makes it difficult to breathe, but then it goes away momenterally. it feels like food is getting caught in there and wont go down and drinking water or coughing doesnt help. does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be?
Heyy Im a 16 year old female, 5ft 4, 8st 12pounds, I have been experiencing very bad anxiety (hypochondria) and I smoke , ive been experiencing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on my right side of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> and sharp pains all over my back followed by breathing wierdly, also trapped wind in lower abdomen and stomach, and have been coughing for a long time a few weeks but its clear mucus,obviously im getting quite scared that it could be something more than anxiety causing my symptoms, was wondering if anyone else has
The pain starts in my chest into my back, through my throat and into the roof of my mouth. It is an incapacitating <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and even after the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> leaves there is a dull pain that lingers. I thought that this pain was due to a really bad chest cold that I had suffered from but now that I am all cleared up the pain still comes at random times at least once a day.
Hi FH, I am sorry to hear about your pain. I assume you have consulted your PCP. If not please do so...if you have what does he/she have to say? Palpitations can be normal for some of us and harmless (according to my cardiologist) if you have a healthy heart. But you need to know what these palpitations are caused from and have them diagnosed. Sore and painful "chest muscles" also have an causation. Have you been using them more so then normal....do you have a nasty cough?
Then after a week or so of feeling fine started feeling very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> when <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span>, sneezing, taking deep breaths, and having hiccups as well as laying down and sitting back up I though I might have a broken rib but I'm only 27 I shouldn't have osteoporosis. Or maybe sprained muscle in my rib cage so I have been taking baths for muscle relaxation and using a muscle and joint rub for two day but it's not helping.
I returned a further two times, as the infection seemed to get worse and then produced chest pain, both a general feeling of rawness and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on breathing/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span> on my left side as well as breathlessness (mostly a feeling of need to yawn a lot on resting that gets worse with movement) He sent me for a chest x ray, which was lost and put me on an inhaler for a wheeze. I went to the ER who sent me home saying I had probably had Pneumonia.
Ok ty, I did end up getting an EKG and chest X-ray, both came back negative for anything serious, he told me it was most likely a strained muscle in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>, it is atypical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span>/tearing on the left mostly, he suggested i could have gotten something that irritated my lungs and a lot of sharp coughing pulled somthing, he told me it didnt sound much like GERD to him, at least not through the stethescope, even though i do have a lot of the symptoms frequently.. As for the anxiety...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) ordinarily does not cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, unless there is rib or nerve damage due to hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span>. Also the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> would not be a sign of lung cancer, when the CT was normal. The pain could be due to a pinched nerve, either along the ribs or in the spine. You should have evaluation for a pinched nerve in the spine, often referred to as nerve root compression. It is unfair to suggest that you are "imagining" the pain.
Over the past 3-4 years I have been experiencing a regular dull <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. Sometimes it occurs a few times a day, sometimes once or twice, other times it won't happen for several days. The pain is generally focused on my left hand side, however it will occasionally (very rarely) occur on the right hand side. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst pain possible, it would only be about a 3. It does not interfere with my day to day life in any manner--beyond being a source of concern.
Hi, it sounds like you have pleurisy. It is inflammation of the lining of the lungs. Sometimes you need an antibiotic to get this to go away. although the Zerodol could get the inflammation to go down. Since it hasn't worked you might ask your doctor if you can try an antibiotic as there could be an infection. In the mean time a heat pad or hot water bottle should help with the pain.
(So in your case, would the chest pain radiate, and/or be accompanied with the facial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>) 5. Nature of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>?(For example, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span>, dull, tearing, burning, achy, etc.) 6. What, if anything, helps relieve the chest pain? 7. What, if anything, makes the pain worse(For this question and for 6, list absolutely anything, could be food, movements, positions, standing/lying down, etc.) 8. History of trauma/injury to your chest or back? 9. Past medical history?

I am a 19 yo white female who has been experiancing excrutiating chest and right arm pain after sneezing. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> starts in my upper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>, very similar to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> experianced when one has a brochoncial infection and has been coughing for a long time. It racks around my chest cavity and is a very sharp, prolonged pain. The pain also moves down my right arm, stopping usually before it goes into my palm.
The pain of pericarditis is typically described as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sharp</span> or stabbing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in the mid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span>, worsened by deep breaths. This pain may mimic the pain of a heart attack, because it may radiate to the left side of the back or shoulder. One distinguishing factor is that the pain is worsened by lying flat and improved by leaning forward. when lying flat, the inflamed pericardium is in direct contact with the heart and causes pain.
One person mentioned having the severe pain after 10 days of severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span>-that is most likely pleuritic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>chest</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> caused by the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>coughing</span>, so it should go away fairly soon and with anti inflammatories. I went to ER last week when I was having the pain, along with nausea and the feeling that I was going to pass out. I was told I have pleuritic chest pain and cardiac enzymes were negative. I'm to follow up with a cardiologist and do a stress test to be sure though.
