A 49-year-old female asked:
could chest pain now be related to a fall 3 months ago that led to a partially collapsed lung?

Yes: Possibilities include incomplete healing, or recurrent partial collapse, or the onset of arthritis due to the injury. It could also be something completely unrelated; heart diseases could be the cause for example. Symptoms like these deserve a full evaluation in person by your health care provider.

Is it new?: Or has this pain lingered since? You may have a recurrent collapse if this is new. Cracked/fractured rib pain can linger a long time, but that would be the same old pain, so if this is new get a chest x-ray.
