Penetrating Chest Pain And Right Abdominal Pain?
Greetings … I have been undergoing pulmonary TB treatment for two months. The last few days, I sometimes feel pain behind the right chest cavity, which hurts when I sneeze or cough. Then since 2 days ago, I felt pain in the right abdomen, the pain was very, and spread to the back of the waist, and the upper back of the back every time I took a deep breath, sneezing, especially coughing. The right chest also still feels pain. I wonder why this could happen huh? Is it related to bone TB because I have pulmonary TB? I am worried because my back aches in the bone, the chest cavity too. Thanks in advance, please enlighten me ..
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Complaints of pain in the stomach and back that you feel, can occur due to various things, can be related to the condition of the tuberculosis infection that you are experiencing, and can also be a totally separate condition. Among the possibilities are:
Inflammation of bile
Disorders of the liver
Infection of the pulmonary membrane
Injury or muscle tension due to coughing too often and or too tight
Tuberculosis infection in other organs such as intestine or bone
And actually there are many more possibilities depending on the clinical condition that you experience. Our advice, if your time for TB control is near, take advantage of the control time to ask about your complaints now and if the range is still far enough, you should check your condition at a general practitioner first. Your doctor will dig your medical history to see whether there is a link between the symptoms and the infection you are experiencing, conducting a short physical examination, and maybe an X-ray support if necessary. Direct examination is very important because all of the above can provide similar complaints as you complain and cannot be distinguished except by direct examination.
Meanwhile, if the pain is indeed triggered by sneezing or coughing, try not to let yourself cough or sneeze too tight. Try to hold it and minimize it by consuming more hot drinks, avoiding dusty places, polluting and also avoiding cigarette smoke. Stay away from stress, apply warm balm on your chest, and avoid eating fatty foods. So, hopefully answering your question.
