Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
On the chest wall and chest, there are various tissues and organs making up the chest body. So that there are complaints of pain in the chest or rib area, it can be caused by the process of inflammation, infection, or impaired function of the tissues and organs making up this part of the body in the chest. Therefore, the presence of complaints of pain or pain in the chest need to know the main cause of the complaint, one of which is by conducting a direct examination to the doctor, so that the doctor can conduct an examination to consider several possibilities, such as:
Infection or abscess in the skin tissue
Muscle chest tightness
Inflammation of the rib cage
Rib nerve compression
Diseases of the respiratory system, such as lung infections or inflammation of the lining of the lungs
Therefore, pain in the ribs can also provide information that this pain may be caused by other conditions or diseases other than disorders or abnormalities of the ribs.
In connection with your question, if you currently feel a complaint or pain in the ribs, then this complaint is caused by a disruption in the ribs themselves or possibly caused by muscle tension around your ribs. Without a direct inspection, the cause of this complaint cannot be ascertained directly.
In general, complaints of pain in the rib area caused by chest muscle tension can be accompanied by complaints of pain when moving, chest pain when breathing long, or pain when pressed. Usually this complaint is triggered by a long cough, stress, trauma, uncomfortable sleeping position or due to physical fatigue. Performing spinal stretches and chest muscle stretching exercises will help reduce your chest muscle tension, and will further help reduce this pain complaint. Other efforts can also be done, such as getting enough rest and giving a warm compress to the area of your chest that hurts.
However, all this still requires a consultation and examination of a doctor directly to ascertain the cause and determine the right treatment for you. The doctor can also plan necessary investigations, such as blood tests or radiological examinations. The results of the examination will be the basis for diagnosing and handling this complaint.
