Chest pain: Chest pain associated with breathing difficultly could be a sign of serious underlying illness. Need to seek medical care as soon as possible.

Several poss. causes: Must consider serious causes like heart or lung problems & rule those out, pronto.Could also be related to hiatal hernia or gerd.Commonly, such pain & shortness of breath can be caused by rib dysfunction.A good history & physical, incl. Osteopathic hands-on exam & appropriate lab & other tests should help determine cause.If it's due to ribs, manipulation might fix it. See your osteopathic dr. Asap.
