And it’s hard to breathe and if you cough it will get worsernCould the pneumonia come back? Or is there another possibility?
Left chest pain can occur in various diseases ranging from mild to quite serious, such as a heart attack. Based on age, the causes of left chest pain can vary. In general, conditions that can cause chest pain can include:
heartburn or part of the heartburn that is irritated by stomach acid that rises
pleurisy or inflammation of the lining of the lungs (pleura)
inflammatory pain in the rib cartilage
chest muscle injury or cramps in the chest muscles
In cases where you have continuous coughing, chest pain can also occur due to "tired" chest muscles contracting due to constant coughing. Pneumonia recurrence is unlikely because it is usually accompanied by shortness of breath and fever, but the possibility must still be considered. For now, we can advise you to check with your doctor first for an examination in connection with chest pain that does not improve. Here we attach an article about left chest pain. Hope it is useful.
