Question: chest pain


 jpass - Mon Aug 15, 2005 1:23 pm

I am 25 year old female. I woke up this morning with pain ion my right side upper chest, my breast area... like it was a pulled mussle or something. I took ibprofine this morning and just recently took some alive but nothing seems to help it. When I breath in it hurts and now my arm on the same side of the pain is very heavy. Is this something I should worry about? any suggestions?

User avatar Hi jpass,
You should have an evaluation to rule out anything cardiac (heart) in origin. However, generally speaking, pain that occurs with inspiration usually indicates a condition muscular in origin such as a "pulled muscle."
Sincerely,
Rntdj
