Why do I get chest pain(like if it was my heart that hurts) when I take a deep breaths?

Why do I get chest pain(like if it was my heart that hurts) when I take a deep breaths?

Not likely the heart: You are describing chest wall (usually musculoskeletal) pain, not cardiac discomfort. Can also be caused by inflammation of the lining of the lung (pleurisy). Physical stress or injury (over exercise or "pulled muscle") or local viral or other underlying infections may be playing a role. If not responsive to rest, local heat, muscle relaxants or mild analgesics, you need to talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Chest pain with deep breath and feber started yesterday but today I woke up with chest and stabbiibg back pain when I take a deep breath and a low grade fever?

Please be seen: Some of that sounds like pleurisy. However, these are signs and symptoms that could suggest a serious infection including pneumonia. Some heart problems like pericarditis (inflammation of the heart lining) can also cause these kinds of symptoms but is less likely. Best to get a good history and exam to decide. ...Read more

Chest pain with deep breath. Enlargd rght neck lymph node. Gingvitis. Fever 37, xrays ok, blood tests ok. Swollen bone right chest. I work o heavy load?

Chest pain with deep breath. Enlargd rght neck lymph node. Gingvitis. Fever 37, xrays ok, blood tests ok. Swollen bone right chest. I work o heavy load?

Why the concern?: Chest pain on deep inspiration only is almost certainly chest wall pain and is no concern. All young men have at least one enlarged neck lymph node. A temperature of 37c isn't a fever. Different people have different-shaped bones on their chests. Your dentist can advise you about your gum disease; i'd urge you simply to be grateful for good health and to continue enjoying your youth. ...Read more
