Right Chest Aches When Breathing
Hello I am 43 years old I have a history of asthma … about 2 months ago I fell from a motorcycle … not severe just a small wound … but crushed my child. Initially it didn’t hurt, a month later my asthma was recurring at that time when I just felt my right chest aching until it penetrated into the shoulder blades, when asthma healed my chest didn’t hurt anymore. Right now I have asthma and my chest hurts again, before when my asthma recurred, my chest didn’t hurt like this. Please explain what I suffered. Thank you in advance
Hello Reni, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I try to help answer.
Chest pain that arises after a collision is generally related to muscle and bone problems. Pain due to muscle and bone problems usually appear on the part that is traumatized or impacted, on the part that experiences a collision when the part is pressed there will be pain, or the pain arises with changes in position and movement.
If the trauma or impact is mild or not too severe, it is generally harmless and can heal on its own. In severe conditions such as in cases of severe accidents, the examination will later be found crepitus or sound when the bones are moved, bones can be sticking out of the body, a lot of blood out, it can even decrease consciousness or faint.
The condition that you are experiencing right now, can occur if a complaint of tightness arises. Therefore avoid exposure to dust, smoke, cold weather or conditions that make your asthma recur. In addition, you can do the following:
Compress the affected part with ice water for 15-20 minutes
Do not massage or massage the affected part
Avoid heavy and excessive activities
Consumption of painkillers such as paracetamol can help reduce symptoms. If the pain does not improve, or tends to get worse, then you can go to a doctor. Hope this helps, thank you.
