I did exercise last 1 month.Now pain in my upper right chest ribs.It's any problem?What can I do?

Not serious: If your ribs started to hurt after exercise and you can touch the part that hurts and reproduce the pain then you can be confident that it is an injury to the ribs and or the muscles that attach to them. This will almost always take care if it's self. It takes longer then you would like. Heat and tylenol, (acetaminophen) aleve or Motrin will help. If you are short of breath or the pain is severe see your doctor. ...Read more

Im taking suboxen and vyavance  and I just got I sharp pain in my upper right chest it went away after I bent over for a ill bet and I also had a beer?

Too much in the mix: I have all of my suboxone patients sign a contract, whereby they agree to not drink any alcohol while they are on suboxone, as it is not a safe combination. In my opinion, it is difficult to stay clean and sober while drinking alcohol, and i assume that is your goal. In addition, vyvance can have a habit forming potential, and for that reason, i don't prescribe stimulants to my suboxone patients. ...Read more

I have a sweet taste in my mouth when i cough, a strange thud like feeling in my chest when i exhale, and a sharp pain in my upper right chest?

I have a sweet taste in my mouth when i cough,  a strange thud like feeling in my chest when i exhale, and a sharp pain in my upper right chest?

Costochondritis: The sweet taste is difficult to explain. The pain in the chest with breathing is probably costochondritis . This is due to an inflammation of the chest wall after a virus or a common cold. It is usually self limited and responds to Motrin 800 mg 3 times a day with food. If it does not improve over the next few days get a chest X-ray to rule out a walking pneumonia. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more

Hard to tell...: For how long have you had symptoms? Did anything seem to bring them on? Do you have fever?

Severe pain in throat /upper right chest during strenuous exercise . Only lasts about 10 min afterwards. I do have asthma but this feels defferent .

Muscle strain?: If you have asthma and you are familiar with exercise induced attacks you know to try your rescue inhaler before the exercise. However, it sounds more like muscle issues than asthma attacks. Do you use a peak flow meter to check your "good" levels? Give it a try. ...Read more

I had a pain that started under my right armpit and grabbed (like a muscle spasm)- the pain went from upper right chest, wrapped around armpit to shou?

Muscle spasm: You made a great diagnosis. Yes some muscle spasm can go from the front of the chest around to the back. Hint: No heavy exercise, use Advil or Aleve (naproxen) if not allergic and use 2-3 tennis balls in an athletic sock and place under the affected muscle. BioFreeze is an excellent liniment. ...Read more

Costochondritis: You probably have an inflammation in your rib called costochondritis. This will only occur on one side, is relieved by OTC pain medications, & usually goes away by itself. Did you have a recent viral infection, fall, injury or strain? These things can cause this condition. Hope that helps. ...Read more
