Sharp pain chest coughing

Common Questions and Answers about Sharp pain chest coughing


Avatar m tn After an extreme coughing spell (been treated for an upper respiratory infection last week) I felt a sharp pain in lower left abdomen. I still have the recurring pain after 2 days. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn One week after my broncoscopy, I'm experiencing sharp pains throughout my chest and side area when I cough. If I am still and dont cough I'm good.
Avatar m tn Sometimes i have a small coughing fit, and after one coughing fit, i had a sharp pain on the right side of my chest. It felt like there was icyhot on my lung, then that feeling faded away after about an hour. But, i still get an occasional sharp pain on my right, sometimes left side in what feels like my lungs. I should also point out that i am a smoker of 4 years.
789873 tn?1236735893 I seem to get them in my left chest area, a stabbing feeling and the deeper I breathe the greater the pain is. It has now moved all around my left chest and into the side of my torso and left back and sometimes in my left arm as well... I'm petrified of these pains and they make me extremely stressed. I'm always fearing that they're related to some sort of heart attack thing and I'm going to die... I sometimes shake and get a cold sweat when these pains occur, absolutely terrifying.
1542723 tn?1294451038 QUOTE: "Sometimes walk up the stairs 30 times, which gets my sysyem going but don't suffer any pains. In the recent freezing temps we have had in UK I have walked and jogged in the park and had no problems". But why do I get pains when I relax in bed or twist or stretch myself? Also when I cough I get the pain in the sternum area.
Avatar f tn Hard coughs and getting up to fast, changing position also cause the sharp stab,or dull achey, I had both sides hurt for hours! But felt the sharp pain on the left, apparently it's common. Wouldn't worry.
Avatar f tn The constant coughing could cause muscle strain and chest pain. Sometimes the pleura, the lining of the chest cavity and lungs can get inflamed causing pain with coughing referred to as pleuritis. With your symptoms it is likely that the bronchitis has caused consequent pleurisy. Therapy lies in treating the underlying cause and pain killers. So, continue with your medications and take OTC naproxen for relief from pain.
Avatar n tn Should state that it ranges from sharp pain to burning pain, but always in the same spot. Pain doesn't increase/decrease to the touch or pressure (sneezing, coughing has no effect) or stretching the area. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have a popping in my chest when I cough really hard. I also have a pain in my chest on my left side like where my heart is but not on the other side. The pain is only there when I move weird, like if I'm crunching down or if I swing around quickly or stand really straight. I do smoke but there is no wheezing or blood or pain when I breathe. Could this be lung cancer? I think it's getting worse, what should I do?
Avatar n tn I was getting sharp chest pain and palpitations (racing heart). They tested my iron stores - Ferritin (18 very low!) and since I started taking an iron supplement, these symptoms went away - poof!
Avatar m tn So at this point it only got worse, I was experiencing extreme sharp pains in my chest constantly, shortness of breath, a heavy chest. The hardest thing I've ever been through in my whole life. Its what I imagine someone who is going through a drug withdrawal to feel like. A long, long agonizing story short I finally met with my family doctor.
193988 tn?1215027483 oh my that sucks!!!! I have to have c-section im not looking foward to the coughing..
Avatar f tn I have a major pain in left breast and surrounding area-my doctor said I might have pulled a muscle from coughing (bad smokers cough plus had bronchitis) this pain really hurts-I can not get up from bed without holding my chest and trying to stop the pain should I wait and see if it heals itself?
155534 tn?1275415855 I started getting this sharp localized pain in my lower right chest area. Right undermy right breast(I mean right where my breast ends).It is so painful. It started out just hurting when I coughed ..but now it hurts all the time. 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 m tn Hi, just recently after meals, ive been getting a sharp pain right in the middle of my chest about in line with my nipples. every few breaths i get the pain which makes it difficult to breathe, but then it goes away momenterally. it feels like food is getting caught in there and wont go down and drinking water or coughing doesnt help. does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be?
Avatar m tn Hello, i am a 23 year old male 160 pounds 6 foot 1 and I began to have very sudden and sharp pain in the left side of my chest. It happens very suddenly and goes away very suddenly and is kind of random when it actually happens. I think maybe physical activity provokes it, but I haven't tried again to excersize out of fear that something might happen.
Avatar f tn Heyy Im a 16 year old female, 5ft 4, 8st 12pounds, I have been experiencing very bad anxiety (hypochondria) and I smoke , ive been experiencing sharp pain on my right side of my chest and sharp pains all over my back followed by breathing wierdly, also trapped wind in lower abdomen and stomach, and have been coughing for a long time a few weeks but its clear mucus,obviously im getting quite scared that it could be something more than anxiety causing my symptoms, was wondering if anyone else has
Avatar f tn The pain starts in my chest into my back, through my throat and into the roof of my mouth. It is an incapacitating pain and even after the sharp pain leaves there is a dull pain that lingers. I thought that this pain was due to a really bad chest cold that I had suffered from but now that I am all cleared up the pain still comes at random times at least once a day.
Avatar m tn Hi FH, I am sorry to hear about your pain. I assume you have consulted your PCP. If not please do so...if you have what does he/she have to say? Palpitations can be normal for some of us and harmless (according to my cardiologist) if you have a healthy heart. But you need to know what these palpitations are caused from and have them diagnosed. Sore and painful "chest muscles" also have an causation. Have you been using them more so then you have a nasty cough?
Avatar n tn I returned a further two times, as the infection seemed to get worse and then produced chest pain, both a general feeling of rawness and a sharp pain on breathing/coughing on my left side as well as breathlessness (mostly a feeling of need to yawn a lot on resting that gets worse with movement) He sent me for a chest x ray, which was lost and put me on an inhaler for a wheeze. I went to the ER who sent me home saying I had probably had Pneumonia.
Avatar n tn Ok ty, I did end up getting an EKG and chest X-ray, both came back negative for anything serious, he told me it was most likely a strained muscle in the chest, it is atypical chest pain, sharp/tearing on the left mostly, he suggested i could have gotten something that irritated my lungs and a lot of sharp coughing pulled somthing, he told me it didnt sound much like GERD to him, at least not through the stethescope, even though i do have a lot of the symptoms frequently.. As for the anxiety...
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.
Avatar m tn Over the past 3-4 years I have been experiencing a regular dull chest pain. Sometimes it occurs a few times a day, sometimes once or twice, other times it won't happen for several days. The pain is generally focused on my left hand side, however it will occasionally (very rarely) occur on the right hand side. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst pain possible, it would only be about a 3. It does not interfere with my day to day life in any manner--beyond being a source of concern.
1682264 tn?1305030891 Then after a week or so of feeling fine started feeling very sharp pain when coughing, sneezing, taking deep breaths, and having hiccups as well as laying down and sitting back up I though I might have a broken rib but I'm only 27 I shouldn't have osteoporosis. Or maybe sprained muscle in my rib cage so I have been taking baths for muscle relaxation and using a muscle and joint rub for two day but it's not helping.
Avatar f tn (So in your case, would the chest pain radiate, and/or be accompanied with the facial pain) 5. Nature of the chest pain?(For example, sharp, dull, tearing, burning, achy, etc.) 6. What, if anything, helps relieve the chest pain? 7. What, if anything, makes the pain worse(For this question and for 6, list absolutely anything, could be food, movements, positions, standing/lying down, etc.) 8. History of trauma/injury to your chest or back? 9. Past medical history?
Avatar n tn I am a 19 yo white female who has been experiancing excrutiating chest and right arm pain after sneezing. The pain starts in my upper chest, very similar to the pain experianced when one has a brochoncial infection and has been coughing for a long time. It racks around my chest cavity and is a very sharp, prolonged pain. The pain also moves down my right arm, stopping usually before it goes into my palm.
Avatar m tn Hi, it sounds like you have pleurisy. It is inflammation of the lining of the lungs. Sometimes you need an antibiotic to get this to go away. although the Zerodol could get the inflammation to go down. Since it hasn't worked you might ask your doctor if you can try an antibiotic as there could be an infection. In the mean time a heat pad or hot water bottle should help with the pain.
Avatar n tn The pain of pericarditis is typically described as a sharp or stabbing pain in the mid chest, worsened by deep breaths. This pain may mimic the pain of a heart attack, because it may radiate to the left side of the back or shoulder. One distinguishing factor is that the pain is worsened by lying flat and improved by leaning forward. When lying flat, the inflamed pericardium is in direct contact with the heart and causes pain.
Avatar n tn 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. I went to ER last week when I was having the pain, along with nausea and the feeling that I was going to pass out. I was told I have pleuritic chest pain and cardiac enzymes were negative. I'm to follow up with a cardiologist and do a stress test to be sure though.
