I fell in Sunday and my ribs and back on the right side hurts when I breath ?

I fell in Sunday and my ribs and back on the right side hurts when I breath ?

Make sure you don't: have a cracked rib or punctured lung. Then try to take some acetaminophen or ibuprofen for presumed contusion of your lung. If that does not improve, you need a CT angiogram to make sure you did not have a blood clot in your lungs. Or significant hematoma or visceral damage to your lung. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Nsaid's may be helpful in alleviating pain and inflammation, but use caution with these if you are on blood thinners or have GI problems like ulcers or gastritis. ...Read more

What could cause the left side of my chest straight through to my back hurt? It hurts when I breathe , cough, sneeze.... it's just painful

Several Things: Left-sided chest pain that radiates through to your back includes, from less to more concerning, gas and indigestion, musculoskeletal strain or inflammation, pneumonia, collapsed lung, pancreatitis, heart attack and aortic dissection. In the setting of recent trauma, splenic rupture would be considered also. Depending on your age and risk factors, any of these become more or less likely. ...Read more

I'm having back pain and it hurts when i breathe deeply. It started yesterday when i laid down on my belly on the couch. I couldn't get comfortable so after i got up it started. The pain is on the left side mid section below the shoulder blade. I looked

Sometimes : Sometimes back pain is so severe that breathing is painful, but this is unusual. The presence of pain with breathing is concerning for lung pain and i would recommend seeing your primary care doctor right away to rule out lung problem. Especially if it is associated with shortness of breath and/or chest pain. If no lung or heart problem is found then the pain could be from pulled back muscle or joint problem and your doctor may start you on anti-inflammatory medicine and physical therapy. Good luck! ...Read more

History: clearly you are concerned. Left sided chest pain needs to be looked at. Age is risk factor along with your medical history. Duration and the type of pain is imp. What brings it on? Would suggest to seek your primary care doc input and work up. If the pain persist would seek help sooner. The probability of heart disease is based on risk factors. Your medical history would help.

Right sore throat: do you sleep on the right side mostly? You could have post nasal drip at night which is irritating the throat. Most likely cause, allergies. Especially at this time of year. Try over the counter Flonase or get a prescription from your doctor. Good luck and feel better! ...Read more
