My doctor said that my respiratory muscle trauma was my question, why hasn’t there been any change after taking obt …? Obt is then alprazolm, mecobolmin, and prednisone
Hello Asmawi, Thank you for the question.
The chest pain that you experience can indeed be caused by a muscle injury to the chest wall. This pain can occur when the muscles experience pressure or move while breathing. Muscle injury usually can occur if you do not warm up sufficiently before exercising or incorrect body position when lifting heavy weights. In addition to chest wall muscle injury, chest pain can also be caused by pleurisy, costchondritis, pleural effusion, gastric acid disease, impaired cardiac function, anxiety disorders, and others. A doctor's examination is needed to determine the cause of your complaint.
The healing process in muscle injuries can vary depending on severity, ranging from several weeks to several months. The medicine you get consists of sedatives (alprazolam), vitamin B12 (mecobalamin), and steroid drugs to relieve inflammation (prednisone). However, if you still experience a disturbing complaint, you are strongly advised to go back to see a doctor. The doctor will re-examine you to confirm your condition. You can also check with other doctors to ask for other opinions if you are still not satisfied with the doctor's explanation before. Discuss with your doctor whether you need to get painkillers so that this pain does not interfere with your daily activities.
In the meantime, please avoid activities that involve chest muscle movements, including the gym and lifting heavy weights. You can warm compresses to the affected area for 10-15 minutes and can be done several times to help reduce inflammation. You can also take temporary pain medications such as paracetamol if the chest pain is quite disturbing.
Hopefully this information helps you.
