Common Questions and Answers about Pain in left breast when coughing


Avatar f tn Just wondering if anyone had any advice.. When I yawn I have severe pain in my left chest.. I'm not sure if it is a muscle that is strained or pulled or if its something serious I should see a doctor about? Maybe acid reflux or something? It only happens when I yawn and its not constant.. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.. THANKS!

Avatar n tn Hi I am 43 year old male and or the last year or so I have been getting a bit of a chest pain in my upper left chest at breast area. I only get pain immediately after eating something (so might get it multiple times per meal) I seem to get it most often when I am eating fast or big bites (or both) It isn't extremely painful, just uncomfortable. And it goes away almost always after a quick stretch of my arms above my head, or some sort of drink.
Avatar n tn Are you nearing ovulation time? Sometimes I get pain in left ovary and in my cervix when I ovulate. It sounds like you need to put a call into your doctor's or GYN's office. If it is an infection, it needs to be treated with antiobitics. Good luck!
Avatar f tn I have the same upper left breast pain. (under arm pit) I also feel it once and a while on the right side as well. I just recently changed jobs and am experiencing a lot of stress. Thought it could be a heart issue, however I'm only 34 and in pretty good shape. (Played high school sports as a kid) After reading the above I've come to realize that the increased stress and anxiety (new job, new baby, etc.) may cause you to worry at little more that you should.
Avatar m tn It hurts me in me upper left side of my chest. Pain is around my breast and feels like somebody is grabbing my heart when i breath in. I used to smoke but i stopped about 2 months ago and it was not constant. I loose my breath very easily. Does anybody know what this is and if it could be harmful to me.

Avatar n tn Lifted left arm to hug someone and felt a severe pain in rib area just under and behind left breast. Has intensified over one week period. Coughing and movement are very painful. When touched, area feels like it was bruised, but there are no visible signs of bruising. Very slight swelling. At night, turning over is very painful. Intensifies after walking. Any general movement is painful, but it worse at night. Bending over is excruciating.
Avatar n tn now i have this pain under my left breast that extends around to my back. it hurts to lie on my back on the left side at night when i'm trying to sleep.also some times it hurts to take a deep breath. could this be a pulled muscle? i did do alot of coughing but never experienced this before so now i'm worried about what it might be? an infection? i did take zpac for 5 days.and it cleared up the broncitis. also when i lay on the left side sometimes i still hear a little wheezing sound.

Avatar f tn I have been weak, have a lot of mucus and frequent coughing. Now the ridge under my left breast seems to increase in size and gives me extreme pain all around my left chest area when I move my are, take a deep breast, or cough. I read that another member was having this back in 2008 and it was suggested that it could be a type of fibrosis. Has anyone had this combination of problems? Could they be connected? FYI: I have been gradually weaned from 80mg of prednisone down to 20mg.
Avatar n tn I feel like I have a weight of 10 pounds in my left chest-as someone else described it. My pain happens when I'm reading in bed (relaxing) and sometimes I'll have it first thing in the morning. I don't have any risk factors except for high cholesterol (38 yr old female). One person mentioned having the severe pain after 10 days of severe coughing-that is most likely pleuritic chest pain caused by the coughing, so it should go away fairly soon and with anti inflammatories.
Avatar n tn Hello Sstrangee, Welcome to MedHelp. I am glad you found us. But I am sorry you are having pain. We all can related to that at the Pain Mgt. Forum. First what does your physician say about your the infection around you heart? Did he refer to it as Pericarditis? Have you returned to him following the completion of the antibiotics? The pericardium is a thin double-layered sac which encloses the heart. Fluid is contained within the layers and lubricates the constantly rubbing surfaces.
Avatar n tn i recently had a bad case of broncutis had to get breathing treatments whole 9 yards and had the worse cough i have ever had and had the same problem, had pain so bad in my left upper right under my breast it even hurt to touch, when my heart dr. layed me down he had to help me back up he said i more then likely pulled or tore a muscle, so he gave me meds for the pain. it took like 3 weeks.
Avatar n tn I have a large lump on my rib that is right below my left breast. It is not in my breast but below my breast.I had a tumor removed a year ago in my right breast, which was benign, but this is strange. It is very large and very distinctive. Can you have a tumor on your rib and not in your breast that might be Breast cancer and what do you think it can be. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Avatar m tn i had a blood clot in lung, out of hospital 10 days now, my pain was under rib cage, now gone, but pain when i breath deep has changed. its still on left side, but lower and more towards back by about 6 inches. i see doc in 2 days, for one of my 2xweek check up. hopefully this is not to serious and can be explained. i am on warfin. scares me a little though.
Avatar n tn After the pneumonia was starting to get better, the coughing persisted and I was on nebulizer treatments and cough syrup with codeine. I have had for over 3 weeks now, pain in the left side, possibly intercostal area and it becomes so bad I can barely turn over in bed at night or when I cough or sneeze. I had regular x rays which show no fracture or lesions. Is there more I can do to help lessen the pain and also find out why I have this pain.
Avatar n tn Do you have a cough or are you coughing up mucus or anything? I had that pain when I was like 8 ish and I went to the er for it and ended up having phenomena on my left side.
Avatar m tn I have had the flu this year the first time ever I am 46 years old, during the flu I had a hard time breathing my doctor gave me a breathing machine, I then developed strep throat I am over this a long with the coughing I hadd.

It hurt when I move or have my bra on, it hurts to the tough or pressing on it.
Avatar n tn I had asthmatic bronchits a few months ago and was coughing constantly very hard. Since then I have had a severe pain in my left breast and under it in the bone when I cough sneeze, breath in or blow my nose, It is so tender. I have had a breast sonogram and nothing showed. What can it be? I am in so much pain everyday.
Avatar f tn I'm going to get a pregnancy test tonight, and I am going to take one although I know it is too early to tell I just want some piece of mind until then, then when my expected period misses (if it does) which is in about 2 weeks, I will take another. Also my glands on my throat are swollen and it hurts to swallow. I also have no appetite, I know the swollen glands are from the sickness, but the lack of appetite may be from pregnancy? Someone please give me some good advice!!
Avatar n tn I would also like to say I have been experiencing pain and numbness in my left hand during the night and also some pain in forearm. My middle finger is the worst. It always hurts and is numb until i get up and move around but remains swollen. I am woken up by this every night! Have not been to doc yet. Did try a wrist band--but no help on the finger. thanks for hearing me..52yr.

Avatar f tn I had it on for about 2 hours while we sat at the dining room table and played cards and ate dinner, and I started getting really uncomfortable in the bra, and thought I had a little pain underneath my right breast. After his friends left, when I took off the bra, I DEFINITELY was in pain! I happened to walk by the bathroom mirror and saw a large bruise (mostly purple shades) underneath my right breast. The bone underneath is sore, too.

Avatar n tn I want to share my experience and testimony to those who suffer from pain under armpit and under breast. When i had the pain for about one month, one morning when i was driving, the pain just started again when i tried to pick up some paper from the floor mat. Nobody was around to help me, and i started to call for help from heavenly father Jesus Christ, Father father Jesus, please help me, take away my pain and heal me whatever is happen within my body.
