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.

The bone underneath is sore, too.
Avatar n tn I get a pain sometimes in my upper left quadrant triggered by vomiting, coughing or sneezing, or maybe even twisting in an unusual position. It started probably about 23 years ago when I got a sharp pain after I had vomited. It doesn't happen that often, but it has been happening more frequently. I do have a history of having very severe cough, and I did vomit a lot with all my pregnancies. Now when it happens, I can even feel a hardness or knot in the area where the pain is.
Avatar m tn I'm not sure what is causing this, but I have a cold and everytime I cough hard I get severe head pain. While I'm coughing it feels like something exploding in my head.

When I finish coughing the pain dulls, but I'm often left with a low grade headache for the rest of the day.

After taking antibiotics that has cleared but the sever coughing has continued. Here is the real mystery.

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 n tn During the Thanksgiving holiday, while driving I was coughing and felt severe pain in my pulmonary artery section of the chest. Then I was coughing harder and felt a pop lower in my chest and deeper (near the coronary section-I believe). The pain was so severe that I needed to pull over immediately and stop the car from moving as I layed my head back to deal with the pain. The pain increased in severity so much that I cried so badly tears drained from my eyes to the top of my ears.

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 Sometimes there can be a hematoma or muscle injury. The difficulty in breathing coughing etc could be due to pain. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi there, It is common to experience pain in the breasts if you have cough which can be due to any condition like bronchitis, pneumonia.Any arthritis in your sternum can cause breast pain while coughing or taking deep breaths .Other causes are a pulled muscle in your chest wall or a rib fracture etc.It can be determined only after a complete medical history and clinical examination whether the pain is originating from the chest or breasts. Seek the opinion of a primary care physician.
