Chest : Chest pain that causes shortness of breath should be evaluated by a doctor sooner rather than later. Even though many people equate chest pain with a heart attack, there are actually many causes of chest pain - some of which are concerning, some of which are not. You need an examination to know whether your symptoms are something to be worried about. I've attached a website with some helpful information about chest pain. In the meantime, give your doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more

Rest, massage: Try to rest the area as much as possible. If the injury is a fresh strain, ice for the first 48 hours. Past that time frame warm compresses, warm shower and gentle massage of the strained muscle to improve blood flow to area. 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

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
