Pain chest infection

Common Questions and Answers about Pain chest infection


Avatar f tn Hey all. I'm 34 yrs old and I am overweight BMI 40. I have been having chest pain on my left side. It also shoots to my left armpit, side of left breast and I have numbness and tightness down my forearm into my hand. I went to urgent care on Friday and all I got was a high WBC indicating I have an infection somewhere! So I went to the ER and that dr, didn't seem to worried at all. Now it's Sunday and I still have pain tightness and heaviness.
Avatar m tn If your mucus is discoloured like dark yellow to dark green and you get it by coughing then you have a bad infection in your chest. The pain is probably due to the coughing and the irritation of the infection and inflammation. If the mucus feels like its coming from the base of your chest then it suggests that the infection is quiet low down your respiratory tract.
Avatar m tn iam a 26 year old male and ive deen aving this bad pain in my left side chest and under my left feet ,ive been to the doc on and off even get different openion but they all came to the conclusion that i have some soft of infection under my ribs, even if i use the pills that they gave me for it the pain never seems to go away,and i realydothink that there is more to the pain than just an infection beause its been like 2 years since i have the pain and its getting worse day by day im quite despera
Avatar m tn Yes, the pain has subsided now. Around the time I had pain, I did have a chest infection. Tx again, Doc.
Avatar f tn For approx 2.5 weeks now I have had chest pain. It started in the centre and now radiates to the left and right. I am exhausted and can just make it to 730 each night. Last weekend my chest felt like it was been sat on by an elephant. I went to the hospital they did an ecg that was fine, stress test for my heart passed no probs the only thing they discovered was mild tenderness where my gallbladder is as well as some indications of infection and inflammation in my blood work.
Avatar f tn I have been have episodes of left chest pain and jaw pain for about 2 months. I have had a stress echo which was normal. I had a cardiac ct with calcium scoring in which my calcium score was 0 and my arteries were clear ( they couldn't see my right coronary artery completely but they assured me it wasn't my heart). I have been on Nexium for my stomach and have been referred to a GI doctor but I continue to have this pain and jaw tightness.
Avatar n tn I am 20 years old, weigh 125. I have been having random chest pain and when it starts hurting , it hurts to take a deep breath. This doesn't happen all the time but when it does it is really distracting.
Avatar m tn Anyways, I have been experianceing chest pain which have been happining to the left of the centre of the chest, sometimes accompinied with left arm pain. I havent had breathlessness as such but have had funny feelings in my chest while breathing. I had an ECG done, had my heartbeat checked and also blood pressure all of which turned out to be ok however, this was taken when the chest pain wasnt present or was bearly present. Anyway, I want to know if there is anything to worry about.
Avatar m tn Hi guys. 19 y old m. Relatively healthy the only health problem known is asthma but not sever. I had these chest pains. it first started about 2 months ago with chest heaviness and discomfort but no pain. Then it went to chest as well as the heaviness and the discomfort. Went to GPs they said chest infection and antibiotics didn't work and went back had an EKG and chest x ray and blood test . All cam normal expected EKG was abit abnormal so put through to a cardiologist waiting list.
Avatar f tn In mild cases of a mild chest infection, the body’s immune system will try to fight the infection on its own. Bed rest, drinking plenty of water and hot drinks such as herbal teas are often the best treatments for speeding recovery from chest pain. Inhaling steam can also help to reduce congestion and kill germs on contact – and is particularly beneficial for your age. Antibiotics or pain relievers such as paracetamol may also be prescribed for pain .
Avatar m tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest pain. Another possibility that can explain the pain 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 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 n tn 5 fever. My joint are in agony and I am experiencing blade like stabs of pain through my chest. Should I worry?
Avatar f tn Hello. :) I'm a 25 year old, 5'4", 110 lb, female. I walk or bike at least 3 times a week for 35-45 minutes. I am on birth control pills. I am adopted and have no known genetic medical history. Since October I've been experiencing chest pains and am currently experiencing my third episode. I've always been very healthy and am, therefore, concerned about this somewhat recent chest pain stuff.
Avatar f tn I got up this morning and have been having sharp chest pain, mostly on the right side and primarily when I breathe out. If I just sit here and do nothing I'm ok, but as soon as I get up and try to walk around I double over with this sharp pain in my chest. It doesn't feel like I'm having a heart attack or anything, and I am not having difficulty breathing. It's just a sharp stabbing pain behind my right breast toward the center of my chest. The dr.
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.

Avatar f tn Ive got a bad chest infection.
Avatar m tn The most dominant symptom for the previous few months is a heat type pain in my chest and abdomen with chest pain. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
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!
Avatar m tn If the pain is due to pleurisy, which is inflammation of the lining of the chest cavity, then this pain can vary with posture and with coughing. As the infection and inflammation resolve, the pain should resolve. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
