Thank you for the question.
A chest that feels painful and jovial after a fall can occur because of the effects of a fall, or it may not. If during a fall your husband experiences a collision in his chest, then this pain and excitement may be caused by fractures or broken ribs, joint dislocations, muscle cramps, ligament injuries, wound infections in the skin (if there are injuries due to falls), and so on. Furthermore, several other conditions that are not always related to the process of the fall, for example due to ARI (acute respiratory infection), heart attacks, asthma, gastritis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, psychosomatic disorders, costochondritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc., can also triggers chest pain and chills.
In order to recover quickly, try your husband first to do the following steps:
Take paracetamol medicine
Compress the warm chest that feels uncomfortable, don't be carelessly sorted
Get more rest
Eat small but frequent portions
First reduce the habit of eating foods that are spicy, sour, and excessive gassing
Don't over-drink caffeinated drinks too
Don't think too much, let alone stress
Do not take any medicine
You can ask your husband to see him directly to the doctor or surgeon if chest pain is very unbearable, chest bone deformity, vomiting or severe tightness, and other severe complaints.
Hope this helps ...
