Pain chest coughing

Common Questions and Answers about Pain chest coughing


Avatar m tn Anytime there is chest pain present it can be alarming due to the possibility of cardiac problems. But, in your case, I would lean toward respiratory or gastro-intestinal issues. The persistent cough, along with the possible presence of lingering congestion, could be causing your upper airways and throat to be inflamed and sore. Also, there could be a possibility of a hiatal hernia. Frequent or hard coughing is a risk factor. I hope that you will consider seeing a physician. Good luck.

Avatar f tn So I went to my doctor and now have to get blood work and a chest xray. Hopefully soon this will work out. Still coughing, my head and back and chest are killing me from all the coughing. However I am hopefull that I will get better soon. Thank you for your help. I talked to my doctor about the things you mentioned.
Avatar n tn I have experienced chest pain for the past two days. This chest pain is in my upper chest, almost right behind the sternum. The pain is very intense when I bend over (as in to wash my face) or when I take deep breathes. It is a continuous pain and I have no noticed it intensify after eating. I have experienced this pain before starting a few months back. The pain is not so noticeable when I am standing or sitting so often it is hard for me to determine exactly when the pain goes away.

Avatar n tn Im 26 and started having chest pain in my sternum area i thought i was having a heart attack but a few days later now im coughing and trying to clear my throught kinda feels like im getting a cold.
Avatar f tn I don't smoke. I eat decently. I exercise. I don't have history of cancer in my family. But, I have a chest pain. It's severe, sometimes. It hurts right between my breast, especially when I breathe deeply (or it worsens when I do.) and when I press it, or put pressure there. Sometimes the pain actually moves to be more on my breast, or it will be right below, on my ribcage. Any ideas of what could be going on?
Avatar f tn I have had chest pain for six days and it is getting worse. I had an ecg, blood tests and chest xray and nothing showed up. The doctor said it isn't my heart or lungs or any blood clots. The pain is on the right side of my chest and radiates to my bcak and right shoulder. I feel a little lightheaded and winded at times and have to walk slow because of that and the pain.

Avatar f tn I have a bronchial infection and the pain in my chest has a name, but not related to cardiac. Thank goodness. This is some really nasty bronchial stuff and I hope none of you get it.
Avatar f tn I've had a cold for about a week now. A few days ago I went to the dr cause I started having pain a few seconds after swallowing (right chest area) it doesn't hurt to breathe.... Just feels heavy. Dr thought I was developing bronchitis but I've been on antibiotics for 4 days now with no improvement.
Avatar f tn Several months ago I felt pain (it wasn't really strong) in my chest bones. My chest bones usually do stick out a little (something me and my sister got from our dad) but now I think they stick out even more than usual. My main concern is this pain I have, I can't really locate it, sometimes it's in my bones above breats, sometimes it's somewhere between bones. I googled it (I know, mistake) and of course it's a sign of lung cancer.
Avatar n tn I am 40 years old and have been having a really bad pain around my sternum. My chest feels tight and it hurts to turn or lift things. I can hardly take a deep breath without coughing or wheezing. It really hurts when I have to sneeze. Is this a common symptom of asthma...this has been going on for almost a year.
1531644 tn?1292099055 Very likely cause by all the coughing. The cartiledge and muscles in the chest have a lot of force put through them when coughing. I had soreness to the touch under the skin covering my sternum for about a week after I finished coughing with the flu. If it's sore to the touch, it's nothing to do with your heart. Repetative coughing can also pull chest muscles, to the point where it's like a stabbing pain each time you inhale.
Avatar m tn Thanks for thinking about this. It's not under my breasts, It's on top of and just under the surface of the skin. I'm a 36 D, so I don't think I would confuse muscle pain under my breast with surface pain? Maybe pain from the muscle is radiating through to the surface? Although I'm not really using the pecs much when coughing, am I? It's odd. Someone posted the same question here in 2012 with no answers except references to 'chest' pain, which is not the same.
447939 tn?1235061943 Hey girl! OHH I so know how ya feel! Ive been having the "heart anxiety" again :( Ill get a sharp little "electrical" shoot thru my chest and it sets me off. I do get the "aching" arm when Im stressed, even w/o chest pain, but it still sends me in a panic. It just about ruined my bday weekend last weekend. But I have noticed I get it even when Im not stressed. So I have no clue really what its from :/ But I can def. relate and I fel for ya!
Avatar f tn As I continued to cough repeatedly to bring up a bread crumb that went down the wrong tube, I felt severe electrical type chest pain and it radiated from my shoulders down to me hands. A day later and I am really aching in my chest and back area when I breath. Does anyone know if I caused myself harm?
Avatar f tn In addition, heart pain is not likely to intermittent or lasting 24 hours. It's the bronchitis still, I've had that symptom for weeks after recovery.
Avatar m tn The last couple of days I have had no chest pain. I hope it was just inflammation from the coughing causing the pain.
Avatar f tn t able to expand my lungs enough to get in enough breath to fully expand my lungs! I have NEVER felt pain like it and I am a chronic pain patient with nerve pain. But this was not to be believed! It's entirely possible that even after all this time you are still feeling the pain from the pleurisy they thought you had a month ago. If you feel there is something else going on, by all means go to either your local ER or to another doctor for a second opinion.
994239 tn?1321203620 I went to the doctor 3 days ago after having shortness in breath and chest pain with rapid heartbeat, nothing else no cough, high fever or sneezing. But I did get a horrible cough a month and half prior. I didn't go see a doctor and rode it till cugh went away by itself . BIG MISTAKE. The doctor took an xray and diagnosed me with pneumonia.
Avatar f tn I would see a doctor incase your cold has now caused an infection of the mucus in your chest and you need an antibiotic. the pain is probably a strained muscle from coughing so hard. take it easy!
