Avatar n tn It will be best that you consult a neurologist who would like to prescribe Pain killers, steroid and muscle relaxants. Other treatments could be cervical orthosis such as a soft cervical collar or stiffer neck brace to restrict neck movement till you get complete recovery. In addition, cervical traction may also be suggested by the doctor, if condition is severe. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Should I be concerned that he may have a sternal fracture or is it likely just bruised and muscle pain? Am I better off taking him to an immediate care facility or taking him to his peditrician? Thank you for any input on this.
Avatar m tn The constant coughing could cause muscle strain and chest pain. Sometimes the pleura, the lining of the chest cavity and lungs can get inflamed causing pain with coughing. So, the pain could be attributed to the lung disease. But angina or cardiac pain many a times can be missed by a routine ECG. In which case, a treadmill or an exercise ECG may help. If you are a hypertensive, diabetic and overweight, you fall in the high-risk group.
Avatar f tn My son is 10 years old and he recently received a trampoline for a late birthday gift. Recently he started complaining of chest pain. We figured he was not used to jumping and that maybe he was messing with something inside like a muscle or something. He has been complaining for a about a week now and tried to jump again and it is still hurting him something awful. Could this be a pulled muscle?
Avatar m tn Ok first off I want to thank everyone for reading, I'm going to try and make this as short and detailed as possible. About 3 months ago I was doing a workout (where you hit a tractor tire with a sledge hammer) I didn't warm up before doing so and I did something to my chest.
1464004 tn?1384135733 Does anyone have any help for chest muscle pain? I have all the usual back and neck pain but now it's gone around the shoulders and chest. Git so bad I went to the ER. Of course they did a complete cardiac work up even though I said it was muscular. Ekg, echo, chest x Ray and CT scan (looking for embolism or clots) were all good, although I do have rhythm issues, so they sent me home with no relief.
Avatar f tn I slept on the floor and i woke up with chest pain. It hurts when I breathe and when I turn. Do I have sore muscle on my chest or heart problem? I been having it for two days.
Avatar f tn The muscle was attached to the first couple of ribs giving me the feeling of chest pain. They got the muscle to let loose and it was instant relieve! Since then when I start to get the pain in my chest I take a muscle relaxer prescribed by my doctor and the pain is gone pretty quick. I know you said your pain lasts only a few minutes and I remember that I could feel when the muscle would pull and it would be a sharp stabbing pain.
Avatar f tn I have been having a bad pain in the right upper part of my chest when I rub it it hurts all the way to the bone. It doesn't move I feel like I'm short of breath or gonna pass out. I have tried muscle rub and relaxers but no relief. Bending over and taking deep breaths makes it hurt worse. It's not a constant pain either. I have severe anxiety so I always think the worse.
Avatar m tn Chest pain on the RIGHT side of your chest is rarely associated with your heart. There are also about a hundred things that could be causing this pain. When you tell us that by reaching for your alarm clock with your right arm, this is when you feel the sharp pain in your chest. My first thought is that you've pulled a muscle in your chest wall which is exacerbated when you reach for the alarm.
Avatar m tn I'm an 18 year old male and have been expericening chest pain. It only hurts when I lower my shoulders all the way. The pain is at the center of my chest and can go to my back at the center. I played basketball last Saturday and I was chest checking people so I'm guessing and hoping it's brusised I haven't had any other symptoms. Does this sound serious?

237053 tn?1258828426 My main symptom has always been muscle pain - sometimes 'deep' pain sometimes 'burning' type pain also my muscles can feel knotted-up - like I can't stretch them I do find about a teacup full of Epsom salts plus some Radox with Rosemary - helps me to relax- sometimes as soon as I am in the water I feel it start to work - other times it can take 'overnight' to have much effect. Fibro. or Lyme? I thought I had fibro.
1009011 tn?1250693339 However I started getting this severe pain in my chest ( right side under my breast) about 5 days ago. I thought maybe that I pulled a muscle or something and that the pain would go away, but its not going away and my breathing seems to be more difficult and shorter. I cant lay on my right side at night as it shoots a sharp pain throughout my body. I just want to know what is going on. I was hoping someone could give me some advice or something and save me an expensive trip to the doctors!
Avatar f tn It occurs when I reach with my left arm in a certain position.The pain is in the chest muscle that runs from my shoulder blade area to the front of my chest. It is always in one of three spots.I can only describe it as a burning and ripping sensation that stops when the muscle is relaxed. It also occurs behind my left knee. It feels like a thread is being pulled and then snaps. It is very painful. Please help me to figure out which direction to go for a diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest pain. A CT scan of the chest can rule out both. Another possibility that can explain the pain is pericarditis. It causes chest pain aggravated by laughing yawning and deep breathing and also causes radiation of pain to arms. Again an EKG, heat echo and chest X-ray is required. Do consult a doctor and get this examined. Take care!
1309556 tn?1274282092 Chest pain can originate from chest wall (bone, muscle or skin), esophagus, heart, lungs, tissue linings surrounding the lungs (the inflammation of which is known as pleurisy or pleuritis). Sometimes problems with neck, spine, gall bladder, liver or stomach may also cause chest pain. Usually it is difficult to decide what to do when you have chest pain.
Avatar m tn They occur at the left chest area/Right chest area and most the time go down my left arm. Also in the last couple of weeks ive felt a pain in my lower right abdominal area. Ive gone to the caridologist and they said my heart is healthy. they took x-rays and it showed up as fine. (im 16 by the way) Also today ive had a pain in my ride lower leg/calf.( not sure if related) Help!
Avatar m tn Is there a nutritional protocol for the elimination of serratus anterior muscle pain?
Avatar f tn When scalene muscle is the cause of pain, the pain is referred to (either all or a combination of) chest, inner lining of scapula (shoulder bone), shoulder, posterior and lateral sides of the arm right up to the thumb and index finger.
Avatar n tn i went swimming yesterday for about 7 hours. today i woke up with chest pain and it hurts alittle when i breath can anyone help?
Avatar n tn The fact that he is complaining of chest pain is important because, even though heart related chest pain in children is very rare, it can be caused by an enlargd heart. Chest pain is directly related to a lack of blood flow to the heart muscle walls and that happens in enlarged hearts. Take him to see a good pediatric cardiologist.
