Depending on the mechanism and the severity of the impact, an impact in the chest area as you experienced it can be dangerous, but it may not. Dangerous conditions related to chest pain after injury that you should be aware of if:
There is pain with very great intensity, does not relieve with warm compresses or the consumption of ordinary pain relievers There appears deformity on the side of the chest that is hit, for example, looks like a cup, swelling, sores Appears accompanied by shortness of breath, rapid and shallow breathing, coughing up blood, vomiting , fever, anemia, heart rhythm disturbances, decreased consciousness, and so on. If one or more of the danger signs appear above, there's nothing wrong with seeing your doctor immediately. Various examinations, not only the usual physical evaluation, but also X-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, and so on can be done by doctors to identify the extent to which the impact you have had previously caused damage to your chest area. The possibility of more serious conditions, including rib fractures, pneumothorax, pleurisy, or injury to other internal organs can also be evaluated with this examination.
As an initial treatment, you should never laugh, talk, or be overly active. Compress the sore chest with warm water, do not massage or massage it carelessly. Apply a pain relieving cream (for example, one containing paracetamol) on the side of the chest that is sore. Eat and drink regularly. Also wear comfortable clothes in your daily activities.
Hope it helps ..
