Pain In The Lower Right Chest Cavity?
Hello, I want to ask about the pain in the right lower chest cavity that I have felt for 3 days, before I have experienced pulmonary tuberculosis, and have finished treatment. But because I coughed “then I took herbal medicine for the lungs, the cough was gone, but why is there pain in my right chest cavity, before thank you
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of pain in the right chest as you experience can occur due to various possibilities, including:
Muscle injury, for example due to a long cough or bump
Inflammation of bile
Disorders of the liver
Most likely actually more on muscle injuries, because when coughing or sneezing too hard or too often, our chest and stomach muscles tighten so that in some people can cause pain. Our advice is to be more exact, you should check your complaint with a general practitioner or may be directly to the doctor who treated you before. This is important because there are several things that need to be confirmed, such as the exact area, whether there is redness in the area, whether there are skin abnormalities, whether there is abnormal chest noise, and so forth. Thus, misunderstandings can be avoided and your handling can be more appropriate, including if it turns out you need to be referred to a specialist.
While there is no need to worry too much, try applying balm or patching patch on the area to help relieve pain. You can also take over-the-counter pain and anti-inflammatory drugs by reading the rules of use listed. Increase your consumption of warm water, and limit physical activity first. So, hopefully answering your question.
