Right Rib Pain When Breathing?
Hello … It’s been 2 days I felt pain and tightness when I took a breath .. When I first felt it at the bottom of the right rib cage, then now it rises slightly to the rib cage under the chest I gradually disappear. This disease that I am proclaiming? What should I do
Hello Deni, thank you for asking.
Shortness and pain in the ribs or chest that borders the abdominal cavity, may be caused by pulmonary disorders or maybe also by digestive system disorders. Generally shortness of breath in asthma is rarely accompanied by pain, except when asthma is accompanied by other diseases, such as lung infections, pleurisy, emphysema, or effusion.
In addition to disorders of the lungs and respiratory tract, tightness and pain in the chest may be caused by:
Gastric irritation, such as gastritis, peptic ulcer, or GERD.
You should consult with your doctor directly, especially if the symptoms are getting worse. Note the possibility of other symptoms, such as fever, nausea, vomiting, or a feeling like being punctured and pain in the abdomen. In the meantime, limit strenuous activity if when you move your symptoms get worse. If you have difficulty lying down without feeling tight, prop your head and upper body with a pillow. Get enough rest, make sure that your nutrition intake is balanced, stop smoking if you smoke.
Hope this answer helps you. Regards.
