Under my armpit it hurts and in my chest too. When held and made a cough on the chest it hurts. I wonder why?

1 Answer:

Hello Dinarizka,


Thank you for the question.

Pain that is felt under the armpits to the chest, especially when coughing and holding, most often occurs due to muscle pain. This condition is usually caused by the position of your body that is not ergonomic when active. Poor nutrition, lack of exercise, not ideal body weight, and physical activity fatigue can also aggravate this pain.


In addition to muscle pain, pain as you experience it can also be caused by other factors, such as rheumatoid arthritis, nerve pain, skin infection or irritation, peripheral neuropathy, pleurisy, bronchitis, ARI (acute respiratory infection), lymphadenitis (inflammation of lymph nodes) ), gastroesophageal reflux disease, somatoform disorders, panic attacks, and so on.


This pain, as can be seen from our explanation above, causes can be very diverse, so can the treatment. Therefore, in order to be handled properly, it's best to check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist. At home, you can reduce the pain first by:

Apply warm compresses or pain relief creams around your armpits and chest
Not too much to lift heavy things, bend over, or sleep on the side of the body that hurts
Use loose and comfortable clothes
Regularly stretching chest, shoulders and back muscles, for example by swimming, floor gymnastics, lifting weights, yoga
Not getting used to procrastinating when eating
Wisely managing stress and emotions
Eat a variety of healthy foods, rich in B complex vitamins, calcium, magnesium, and potassium
Do not take any medicine before seeing a doctor
Do not smoke

Hope this helps ...
