Shortness Accompanied By Pain In The Back After Falling In A Lying Position?
I want to ask, yesterday I slipped with the supine (lying), on my upper back, it hurts and feels difficulty breathing when after falling, is that dangerous? Having a crack?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After slipping and hitting hard enough in the back area, pain is certainly a natural thing to happen. However, if this pain appears with great intensity, or accompanied by other complaints, such as:
Severe shortness of breath
Bruised or swollen back skin
Asymmetrical chest or back shape
Coughing up blood, and so on
You should be vigilant. It is feared, injuries that you have experienced previously caused considerable tissue damage, for example chest fractures, pneumothorax (buildup of air in the cavity between the lining of the lungs), hematothorax (buildup of blood in the cavity between the lining of the lungs), nerve nerves, injury to internal organs (such as lungs) or stomach), and so on. This condition needs to be examined directly by a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that it can be further evaluated, not only through physical examination, but can also be assisted with supporting examinations, for example x-rays, ultrasound, and so on.
Apart from injuries you have experienced before, it could also be, pain in your back and shortness of breath actually occur due to other causes, such as GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), ARI (acute respiratory infection), fibromyalgia, and so on. With a direct doctor's examination, of course the possibility of other diseases can also be identified earlier and given appropriate treatment. Therefore, if the complaint feels very disturbing to you, you should consult your doctor directly ..
You can go through the following steps so that your complaints improve:
Compress back pain with warm water
Set your breath well, don't panic too much
Do not massage the back pain
Use comfortable clothes, not tight
Eat with discipline, don't be late
Do not smoke
Hope this helps ...
