Pain chest inflammation

Common Questions and Answers about Pain chest inflammation


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 Well, I get a dull kind of a pain in the right hand side of my chest. The same pain occurs when I turn my neck too. It is kind-of on and off. 5 years back I had a stent inserted in my right coronary artery. I'm a smoker even now and smoke quite heavily - say 40-50 cigs a day. What could it be?
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 n tn Any sort of chest pain should be evaluated by a doctor. It could be something like your back out of alignment or a pinched nerve. Could also be something to do with your heart or meds. If the pain is really bad go to the ER. Get it checked out.
Avatar n tn last night i felt alot of pain in my left side of my chest and the pain increases with mov't and breathing so i thought this is anew problem coz the side is above the heart or may be the heart its self so that i need ur advice.....
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 f tn Pericarditis (inflammation of the membrane around the heart), chostochondritis (inflammation of part of the ribs), and pleurisy (inflammation of the membranes around the lungs) can all occur when one has lupus. The treatment of these problems depends on having a good rheumatologist on your side at all times. I hope you have such a doctor to help you get referred to the right specialist. In the meantime, perhaps you would have better luck with your post on the lupus forum: http://www.
Avatar m tn Your symptoms are consistant with costochondritis. It is an inflammation of the cartilage that joins the ribs to the chest bone. It is this inflammation that causes the sharp chest pains inside the chest wall. If you have costochondiritis, you will be able to feel pain upon movement of your upper torso or when you touch your ribs. Most commonly, pain is felt on the LEFT SIDE of your chest, though chest pains on the right side, or even on both sides, can occur.

237053 tn?1258828426 For the last few days I've developed intermittant chest pain (left side) right where my heart it. It isn't severe, just kinda achy. It comes and goes, but I'm kinda concerned about it. I'm having it right now accompanied with air hunger. Very uncomfortable. Does anyone else get this? What causes it? I'm going in this morning to see dr and will be interested to see what she says. How can they deny that I am clearly having problems?
Avatar f tn if you are or were on Lupron, did you ever experience chest pains? I went to the ER last ngiht with severe chest pain and a sharp pain shooting down my left arm. They did tests to see if I had a blood clot and they were all negative. So they sent me home with an anti-inflammatory and pain meds. They said I have a lot of inflammation around my chest wall but couldn't explain why, they said maybe the Lupron is causing it. I emailed my obgyn this morning and she has never heard of this either.
Avatar f tn My legs are tingly, the joints, especially in my hands hurt and are red but there is no fluid, I suffer from chronic sinusitis, chest pain (had a heart cath 4 years ago and it was normal), I hobble when I walk (left big toe joint pain) and overall foot pain. Doctors don't think Lupus, RA or any other autoimmune. My issue is from what I understand fibro and elevated inflammation blood work doesn't fit. So what is causing the inflammation?
Avatar m tn I sometimes get chest pain which worsens when I touch my chest or move muscles of chest.
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.
1448748 tn?1312956208 Ok I'm dumb,i should have asked dr oro this, but I forgot. I have had several bouts of chest pain over the last year and my heart has been checked out and I've had several ct scans they could never find the cause. I do have a higher risk for blood clots but never have had one. I'm experiencing chest pain ib a band like sensation. Its like pressure. The worst part is in between my shoulder blades among the right side of my spine only. It hurts to breathe deep.
Avatar m tn It usually lasts a few minutes and then goes away. I dont have any other symptoms other than sharp chest pain, pain in my jaw, and left arm. What could this be? Is it possible to have a heart attack at 25?
Avatar m tn 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. But pains has spread to arms back neck as well as breathlessness and breathing difficulties.
20530040 tn?1500044207 Inflammation of the liver can cause ‘popping' in the chest, as well as pain in the right shoulder or pain in the right side of the rib cage and back. Similarly, right side chest pain may be due to hepatitis, which is a disease that causes swelling and inflammation of the liver. Your physicians will need to conduct medical tests in order to diagnose hepatitis. Injury: Recent injuries, such as a minor rib displacement or a neck problem, may be the underlying causes for right side chest pain.
Avatar f tn EKG, etc (although I have low blood pressure, which does not have any effect on my lifestyle). results are OK. The pain is like a sharp stabbing sensation in the left middle area of my chest (heart). The pains or cramps lasts for a few minutes.
1351082 tn?1479840132 The burning, sensation in my chest never goes away and it is so intense, the Gastro Dr said he wanted x-ray of my thoracic spine before he did a endoscopy because my symptoms did not seem gastric to him, had another chest x ray, MRI of thoracic spine, ct of chest again, Nothing....the burning, pain, heart feelin like it is thrusting through my chest just a horrible feeling it is so hard to explain,, Tried the Chiro she didnt help at all ten mths later still in severe pain.
Avatar f tn After I have been sleeping for the night and I wake up, I have chest pain in my sternum area. It hurts when I move my arms to stretch my chest. It hurts when I breath deep breaths. This happens every morning when I wake up. Should I be worried? Is this common? Any possible explanations?
Avatar f tn I have had chest pain (off and on) for over 35 years (now 55).
Avatar n tn Pleurisy- inflammation or swelling of the chest cavity. Can be caused by weather change or other things... about a month ago I was having very sharp chest pains when I would move certain ways or inhale. This is what the e.r. said it was. It is also known as devils grip. I think the name fits it well, it hurts.
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 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 Couple of months ago i noticed that my chest was hurting. Not my breasts but in between my breasts I dont know if its my lungs or my heart but it hurts, and mostly when I make sudden movements when I wake up and such. Has this happened to anyone?
