Question: chest pain right side after 3 weeks of bad chest cold


 arttdc - Sat Feb 25, 2006 12:10 am

I am a 32 year old woman who has recently recovered fro an extreme chest cold with acute sinutitis. I am finally feeling better but have developed chest pain on right side at top of my rib cage. It hurts when I breathe or touch the area. I am coughing up a greenish thick mucous which is extermely painful when I do cough. Should I see a doctor for a chest xray?

i had something similar but repeated doses of it ,, pneumonia ,, and you can develop it after a prolonged bout of a chest infection ,, the fact that you are bring up thick green mucus means that your chest infection has not cleared up ,it's still there plus you could have plurisy (the pain you have) as well ( i had that too ), definitly go and see a doctor ,, you don't want it to become pneumonia ,trust me on that (after 3 doses of pneumonia and several serious chest infections i know ),it's not pretty ,, hope you get better quickly ,, good luck
