Pain And Tightness In The Chest Area After An Accident?
In the afternoon, I want to ask, my mom had a motorcycle accident about 2 weeks ago and after 1-2 days the incident at the bottom of my breast hurt, especially when coughing, yawning and laughing sometimes felt a little tight, so why is that? Are there problems with tendons or muscles or other diseases?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain and tightness in the lower chest area of the breast after an accident can indicate a serious condition or not. Most often, indeed this complaint occurs related to muscle pain. This muscle pain can become heavy when coughing, yawning, and laughing, due to chest muscle contractions which are indeed more severe in these activities. Mild pain and tightness due to muscle aches will often improve with the following steps:
Warm compresses on the affected area
Don't overdo the painful area
Not too much activity that involves contraction of the chest and surrounding muscles
If necessary, apply a pain reliever cream to the painful area
Expand to do stretching exercises, for example swimming or yoga
However, if the intensity of pain and tightness that arises is very great, making your mother very disturbed in its activities, or appears accompanied by coughing up blood, asymmetrical chest shape, heart palpitations, and other severe complaints, you better check her directly to the doctor or specialist doctor surgery to be evaluated more deeply the cause of the condition, for example through physical examination, x-rays, CT scans, or other supporting tests. It is feared, there are other more serious conditions that trigger this complaint, such as rib fractures, hematothorax, pneumothorax, pleural effusion, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
