Left Chest Pain Up To The Shoulder In A Certain Position After Falling?
Hello. A few days ago I fell, with the left body position first. Initially, my upper left chest didn’t hurt, but yesterday it started to ache a little, and today it hurts more often when I move with a certain posture, which suddenly feels rather painful (sometimes to the back of my left shoulder). What are the symptoms ?, What are the causes, and how to deal with the pain ?? Thank you
Hello Eka, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Fall or injury will usually cause post-incident pain or rheumatic pain. Usually it will appear on the part of the body affected by the collision, or the area around the body that hit, but can also be felt throughout the body.
If your left chest hurts after you have been injured, it is most likely related to the injury that occurred to you. Generally pain or rheumatic pain will disappear after a few days in the future or about 1 week after injury. You can do simple things at home to reduce pain in your chest, including:
Compress the painful part by using cold water if the pain appears less than 3 days, but if the pain persists more than 3 days then you should use a warm compress.
Do a light massage on the part that feels pain or rheumatic pain, do it carefully and not too hard.
Avoid activities that are too heavy, but you can still do your daily activities.
Use analgesic / painkillers that are sold freely in pharmacies to reduce pain that does not go away, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen.
If you do not feel a change in pain in your chest a few days afterwards, then you should consult a doctor directly to do a complete examination of yourself, so that the doctor can decide whether you need to do additional tests such as Rongten's photo or not.
Thus we can convey, hopefully our information is useful for you.
