Sharp pain chest cough

Common Questions and Answers about Sharp pain chest cough


Avatar n tn Hello there, Just finished reading your comments. You need to call your doctor's receptionist. Ask for a follow up appointment. Tell your doctor what symptoms you are experiencing. If the pain is unbearable and you're having a sharp pain in your chest when you take a deep breath and you have pain on the right side of your back between your spine and your shoulder blade, you have to share this with your doctor asap. I wish you well.
Avatar m tn I cough up phelgm and sometimes feel nausiated out of no where. I have had a sharp pain in my upper left back randomly show up and it hurts no matter what, and the left side of my chest aches when I inhale and exhale. This pain has always occured through out my life very rarely but has become pretty common the last two days. I also have bubbling pains in my left side of my chest when I'm laying down, should I see a doctor ASAP?
Avatar n tn About 2 months ago I had an abnormal ekg. I went to the ER two different times with chest pain and had normal ekgs there and my enzymes and Xray was normal. I have weird symptoms like body pain with throbs around my body that either feel like spasms or twitching. I had a normal stress test. have recently had more pains in my chest they are on the left side they are sharp sometimes. I am now worried it could be a heart valve issue. I have a slight cough but not breathing problems.
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!

Last week i had the same pain these time it was on top of my left breast and its difficult to breath, talking and even to move my body especially the left side.
Avatar f tn I have had a chest cold for six days now but beginning yesterday when I occassionally get that long, drawn out gaggy type of cough, I get a sharp, very painful stinging pain in my upper back almost at the base of my neck. I actually thought for a moment I was being stung by a bee or some other creature. It has continued today but I have been just forcing my...
Avatar f tn I have been conjested on and off for awhile I have really bad sinus problems but about 2 weeks ago got really sick the got a really weird sharp pain in chest it hurts to cough to breath hurts when I move. when I breath I can feel a rattle in my chest. it got better then last night middle of night I tried to roll over and had this awful sharp pain again I turned back to my back and had to cough when I did it felt worse I was short of breath and it felt as if something just snapped togeather.
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.
Avatar f tn I explained to the doctor about my shortness of breath, my tight chest, the heart palpitations and the sharp pain i get in the left side of my chest and a sharp pain mirrored in my back. Sometimes I can feel two sharp pains in my back and my chest at the same time. Sometimes the pain will be in my shoulder. The pain is could deal with, the most uncomfortable part is the trouble breathing. The breathing trouble causes many problems for me.
Avatar n tn Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) ordinarily does not cause chest pain, unless there is rib or nerve damage due to hard coughing. Also the pain would not be a sign of lung cancer, when the CT was normal. The pain could be due to a pinched nerve, either along the ribs or in the spine. You should have evaluation for a pinched nerve in the spine, often referred to as nerve root compression. It is unfair to suggest that you are "imagining" the pain.
797375 tn?1256231262 When I cough I get this really sharp pain in the left side of my chest upper part at top of breast area. And it was happening every now and then but here lately. It's ever time and the pain is worse and stays longer. I thought at first it was gas pain. but wouldn't that be all the time not just when I cough. Like so many others I don't have insurance and we don't have a local clinic that is income based. So going to the doctor is a last resort for me.
Avatar f tn hi, for about 2 or 3 months, i have had this sharp stabbing pain under my left breast. It only occurs when i bend over too far or bend over too fast. i dont know if its a bone or what. but the best way to explain it is when i bend over it feels like something cracks or moves and then i get a sharp pain for about 15-20 seconds. i have also had constant numbness and tingling in my back ever since i got a job at a factory about 3 weeks ago.
Avatar n tn Let me answer your questions, in order. 1. No this does not “sound like something cancer.” It would be rare for a tumor in or around your ribcage to cause pain, especially in the absence of abnormalities on the chest X-ray and CT Scan of your chest. That the pain worsens with direct pressure is most suggestive of musculoskeletal pain, unrelated to your cough and enlarged cervical lymph nodes. 2.
Avatar f tn I'm 11 weeks and every time I sneeze a sharp pain shoots across my lower abdomen. It happens when I cough too but not as bad. Any other time I have no problems and this didn't start happening until a week or so ago. Does anyone know why this is happening or if it's normal? I posted this in the 18-24 but no one answered me so I thought I'd try here.
Avatar n tn when i cough i get a sharp pain in my left bicep and y arm feels like it is going to explode

It is the worst when I sneeze, cough, breath deeply or move in certain positions.But it is a constant doesn't go away at all. Luckily I'm hardly coughing at all anymore.I'm also getting very light headed especially apon standing .What could this be?
Avatar f tn I have had a chest cold for six days now but beginning yesterday when I occassionally get that long, drawn out gaggy type of cough, I get a sharp, very painful stinging pain in my upper back almost at the base of my neck. I actually thought for a moment I was being stung by a bee or some other creature. It has continued today but I have been just forcing myself not to go there with the cough as it REALLY hurt! I am 53 and quit smoking three years ago.
Avatar m tn Hi I'm having this sharp pain in my chest, mostly in the middle more to the right. I had this about 12:20 in the afternoon and it's already 6 and the pain is still here. It's not sore if I cough, sneeze, or breathe in really deep. It's not sore at all even if I press on my chest. I mostly feel it if I "bring my chest in" with my muscles (sorry i cant really explain it), if i lay down really fast, or if i turn my body left or right. Can anyone help me please?
155534 tn?1275412255 I recently saw my Dr. because I was having a slight cough and a sharp stabbing pain on the right side of my chest...(I was also recovering from a reoccuring staph infection) She said she thought it was plurisy and ordered X-rays, and gave me antibiotics and an enhaler of albuteral. I completed all my medicine 5 days ago and the X-ray results said my lungs looked clear and fine. However, I am still having this sharp Stabbing like pain on my right side..literally right behind my right breast.
Avatar n tn i just went to the doctor yesterday from sharp upper back pain. the doctor pin pointed it right away, she said that several people had been coming in with it. its pneumonia, and you can have no other symptoms. I didnt have any other symptoms. Im on antibiotics but in a lot of pain. Ibuprofin works though. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/283338'>Sharp Upper Back pain</a>.
Avatar f tn m 38 weeks pregnant I had a quick question everytime I cough or laying down and move to switch to a different side I get a sharp pain in my lower stomach is that normal this far along or should I be worried?
Avatar f tn I am sixteen years old. A while ago i had a sharp pain inn my chest, sort of in my sternum. It hurt while i was breathing or sometimes while just sitting there. It eventually turned into a sharp pain in the bottom of my throat, and eventually into a sore throat then went away without knowing what it was. This lasted about a month and i forgot about it. Today i noticed a sharp pain while i was breathing. It hurts my whole chest but starts in the sternum.
1682264 tn?1305027291 I had a very bad upper respitory infection for a couple of week, which included a horrible cough. I now have this very sharp pain in my upper rib cage on the left, towards the side. It hurts to breath, and when I cough or sneeze it's excrutiating. Any advise? Dr. gave me IBprophen 800 but it doesn't seem to be working.
Avatar m tn Last Thursday 12/8/16, I went to the ER with pain in my chest, fearing a heart attack. After the EKG came back OK, the doctor suggested a Cardiac CTA to be sure. The test went well and found less than 25% blockage. (Not bad for a 45 year old male with a sweet tooth.) The chest pain subsided that day but a sharp pain in my right pectoral muscle has been bothering me ever since. It hurts when I laugh, cough, sneeze, and sometimes when I swallow or get up from a seated position.
