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 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 f tn In addition, heart pain is not likely to intermittent or lasting 24 hours. It's the bronchitis still, I've had that symptom for weeks after recovery.
Avatar m tn The thing is that everytime i coughed I would feel a sharp jab of pain in the right side of my chest. Can anyone tell me if this is something I should be worried about?
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 n tn If you are having sharp pain in your chest you should get it checked out. Seriously, you should go to Urgent care of an ER or something. You do not want to mess with chest pain. It could be nothing, or something serious. There is no way to tell unless you get checked out. Please get some help. Constant coughing or sneezing might make your chest hurt, but sharp pain can indicate other problems too. I had chest pain really bad a few weeks back and found out I had pneumonia.
Avatar n tn when I have a coughing fit (uncontrollable coughing that makes my eyes water) my breasts hurt. There are multiple small points of sharp stabbing pain in the tissues of my breasts that hurt. The more I cough the worse it gets. This pain is NOT in my ribs, or under my ribs but in the breast tissue itself. It is extremely painful and gets worse each time I cough. Maybe something to do with arteries? (My mother experiences this as well when she has coughing fits).
789873 tn?1236732293 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...
Avatar m tn cough, fever, chills, shortness of breath and sharp or stabbing pain. You need to drink plenty of fluids, Rest, and keep any fever you may have under control. It's also possible that you have pulled a muscle from coughing. If this is the case then it should heal within a week or so after the coughing stops. Probably not what you want to hear but you still need medical treatment.
Avatar n tn It is most likely to be a muscle or intercostal ligament tear located between the ribs, although that should usually hurt worse with deep breaths. Cinnamon in the lungs should not cause pain, especially sharp pain. The other possibility is that you may have a pneumothorax, which is air in the chest with a collapsed lung.
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?
447939 tn?1235061943 Hey girl! OHH I so know how ya feel! Ive been having the "heart anxiety" again :( Ill get a sharp little "electrical" shoot thru my chest and it sets me off. I do get the "aching" arm when Im stressed, even w/o chest pain, but it still sends me in a panic. It just about ruined my bday weekend last weekend. But I have noticed I get it even when Im not stressed. So I have no clue really what its from :/ But I can def. relate and I fel for ya!
Avatar m tn Anytime there is chest pain present it can be alarming due to the possibility of cardiac problems. But, in your case, I would lean toward respiratory or gastro-intestinal issues. The persistent cough, along with the possible presence of lingering congestion, could be causing your upper airways and throat to be inflamed and sore. Also, there could be a possibility of a hiatal hernia. Frequent or hard coughing is a risk factor. I hope that you will consider seeing a physician. Good luck.
354236 tn?1196902187 My husband was diagnosed with bronchitis in the airways on Sunday. Today he's worse. He's coughing harder, severe chest pain, feverish, and the part that scares me is that he has this sharp, stabbing pain in the middle of his lower back, he say's it feels like his kidneys but we are not sure. He's seen 3 different Docs since this started about 3 and a half weeks ago, and none of them has done a chest X Ray.
1953268 tn?1454815040 ve described here, and insist on having a chest exam. Green mucus can be a sign of infection. Chest pain should never be ignored, and should definitely be looked at by a physician in order to rule out any thing serious. Years ago, I had symptoms much like yours, but I chose to skip the doctors visit and stay home. It turned out that I had bronchitis, then developed pneumonia.
Avatar f tn I am scared. I don’t know if I should go to the hospital. I was just coughing & experienced extremely sharp electrical shock type pain in my chest,back, & down both of my arms from the shoulder to the elbow. This shock type pain lasted over 5 minutes. Now, I am having terrible pain in my neck & upper back & stinging in the top of both feet. I feel very weak. My past medical history includes a cervical fusion C5-7 in 2009.
Avatar m tn It was like a very deep breath that brought on a sharp stabbing pain to the lower left part of my chest. Now I want to make clear that at that time I was very raspy and even coughing up phlegm. I had a cough, and I was even told I looked sickly. After my hospital stay, the rasping, and rough breathing stopped. I felt better, and like a moron I didn't quit smoking. Anyways, this involuntary deep breath that disrupts normal breathing patterns followed by a sharp stabbing pain continued.
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 f tn i mean, being bulimic itself is bad enough but since last week ive been having a sharp pain around my right chest area? like almost on the side, around the bottom of my right breast and i cant think of anything else that couldve caused it. i was sick for about a month and i was coughing a LOT but i got a lot better about a week ago. that could be it tho.. but ive also been purging a lot lately.. it randomly hurts.
Avatar m tn I've been having symptoms of sharp chest pains,dizziness,feeling faint,memory loss,stomach cramps,severe headaches. A recent MRI of my heart was within normal range although it revealed a slight enlargement of the right ventricle and the tiscupid valve had mild regurgitation of 21ml and 16%. A 24hr holter monitor was within normal varients although it stated a tendancy toward bradycardia. My heart rate was between 40 and 128 and was less than 60 ---43% of the time.
Avatar m tn t feel any pain immediately but the next day I had a sharp stabbing pain in the left side of my chest which lasted for about 5 minutes. Later that night I had a dull pain in the center of my chest, which got progressively worse for the next few weeks. The pain increases when I take a full breath or exhale fully, and it increases when I exercise. Also when I run it feels like my lungs are unable to inhale fully.
Avatar m tn I thought its just a stomach problem but from yesterday i started having a low grade fever (which i dont have today) and a chest pain. It feels like someone is pouring hot water on my chest when i breath. Its not really a sharp pain i dont really know how to explain the feeling. From today i started feeling like i have diarrhea too but every time i go to bathroom nothing comes out. I just feel like i need to go.
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.
Avatar n tn asthma, pneumonia, a blood clot to the lung, the collapse of a small area of a lung or pneumothorax, inflammation of the lining around the lung or pleurisy. In these cases, the chest pain often worsens when you take a deep breath or cough and usually feels sharp. We should also rule out strain or inflammation of the muscles and tendons between the ribs and anxiety and rapid breathing. Rapid breathing during anxiety is most probably the cause. Are there other signs or symptoms present?
7201693 tn?1389170591 I think I tore either a muscle or ligament under my left lung from sneezing and turning my head toward the right,ever since then I feel a sharp pain around there and it seems the pain has now traveled to the other side and up more on the internal side ,will this ever heal on its own or will it get worse. What did you do to fix the tear?
Avatar f tn I keep having this sharp pain in my lower left abdomen area like right by my pubic bone... I only have it when i move like if I'm laying down and get up. Has anyone had this?
