A few weeks ago i had a short spasm in the middle of my chest, it lasted just a fee seconds but I am left with a dull ache in my chest.

Exam: It's worth looking into. We had a motto at our emergency room that pain, or even just strange sensations, above the waist were cardiac until proven otherwise.

I've been coughing all night (due to asthma) causing a pain/throbbing ache in my chest. Will pain killers help? Or is it brused?

I've been coughing all night (due to asthma) causing a pain/throbbing ache in my chest. Will pain killers help? Or is it brused?

See doctor: If the asthma is causing the cough, you need immediate medical attention. Although opiate-containing pain-killer may dull the pain and suppress the cough, it is more logical to get better control of your asthma and reduce the coughing. See your doctor or go to the ER to rule out the presence of pneumothorax (rupture of air sacs) as well since your type of chest pain is unusual . ...Read more

I suffer from depression lately I have been feeling a dull ache in my chest it gets worse my sadness deepens shortness of breath and racing thoughts?

Depression and pain: I agree with dr. Buhureska: see your medical doctor to rule out organic conditions. Assuming the primary source is emotional, you would be best served by capable psychotherapy and (possibly) anti-depressant medication. Many therapists now offer free initial evaluations. I would recommend you speak to a few to determine if one can help you. ...Read more
