Sudden sharp pain in right chest started 24 hours ago, hurts to breathe, can't sleep because of pain. Go to emergency room? 42 yrs, male, inactive...Took tylenol and aspirin and the pain is much better if the pain goes away should I just forget it?

This: This may well be a musculoskeletal pain related to prior activity, but other causes are possible. A blood clot traveling to your lungs can cause this type of pain. Particularly if you have a history of blood clots, you should have this looked into by your doctor. Bedrest, cigarette smoking, a family history of blood clots, fractures in the pelvis or legs, heart failure, obesity, recent surgery, blood that is more likely to clot (hypercoagulability), cancer, taking Estrogens or birth control pills all increase the risk of blood clots forming. Blood clots in legs veins are most common in adults over age 60, but can occur at any age. Sitting for long periods when traveling can increase the risk of blood clots. This most often occurs when one or more of the risk factors listed above are also present.
Warning signs of a blood clot traveling to your lungs include: unexplained sudden onset of shortness of breath, chest pain or discomfort that worsens when you take a deep breath or when you cough, feeling lightheaded, dizziness, fainting, rapid pulse, sweating, coughing up blood, or a sense of anxiety or nervousness. ...Read more
