Causes Of Front And Back Chest Pain Accompanied By Shortness Of Breath?
Hello, my name is Aditya. I feel pain in the right chest. The pain in the front and the back. Chest pain every move position. I have chest pain with shortness of breath. ‘Sometimes’ the middle chest hurts too. Back of the chest hurts when you stay still. While the front chest hurts every move position. Thank you 🙂
Hello, good night Aditya ...
Right chest pain that is affected by changes in position can be caused by a variety of possibilities, including:
chest muscle injuries, for example due to trauma / punches / impact, physical exercise too heavy, lifting heavy loads and so on
injury to the sternum and ribs, for example due to collisions that cause fractures / broken sternum or ribs
pleurisy, which is inflammation of the membrane covering the lungs.
costochondritis, which is inflammation of the cartilage that connects the sternum with ribs
pneumothorax, namely the deflection of the lungs due to injury resulting in disruption of air pressure in the lungs
To ascertain the cause of your complaint, we recommend that you see a doctor (more specifically a lung specialist) to get further examination and treatment. The doctor will ask questions about complaints, do a physical examination, and if needed the doctor may recommend additional examinations such as chest X-rays, blood lab tests, and so on.
While waiting for your doctor's appointment, here are some suggestions you can take:
limit heavy physical activity and plenty of rest
lay your body to the side that is most comfortable when sleeping
if the pain is disturbing, you can take over-the-counter pain relief medications such as paracetamol
be aware of conditions that require immediate treatment, including if chest pain is accompanied by:
shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
heart rate becomes faster
pain radiating to the left chest, jaw and left arm
coughing up blood
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
