Hello Nichien, Thank you for the question.
The chest pain that you feel when you inhale may be a symptom of pleurisy. Pleuritis is inflammation of the pleura. The pleura is a membrane that encloses the lungs and chest wall. The cavity between these membranes normally contains a small amount of fluid which acts as a lubricant so that when a person breathes, coughs or sneezes, the lungs do not rub against the chest wall and experience pain. When the pleura is inflamed, this fluid becomes stickier and the pleura becomes swollen so that when the sufferer inhales, sneezes, or coughs, chest pain can appear. Some medical conditions that can cause pleurisy include: pneumonia, tuberculosis, viral infections, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, pulmonary embolism, lung cancer, and others. Apart from pleurisy, your complaints can also be caused by acid reflux disease or muscle pain.
To ascertain the cause of your complaint, of course, further examination by a doctor is needed. After asking your further complaints, the doctor will examine you. The doctor will also suggest further tests such as X-rays or CT scans to find the cause. From this examination, the new doctor can determine the next treatment for you. Meanwhile, please eat enough food at dawn and breaking the fast. If the chest pain gets worse, you can take paracetamol.
Hope this information is helpful.
