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?

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."
