Stinging Pain On The Right Side Of The Chest
Stinging pain (mostly right side) in chest, sometimes also felt in neck & near shouldrs. Usualy mild but can intensify. Can aspirin help & what dose?
Probably not needed: You can take aspirin at 81 mg a day, but given that you are 25, this is probably not needed and could lead to easy bruising. Seems like I answered your other question, which seems related to this one. Both of these would be better answered with an established primary care physician (PCP). Also, since you're already on NSAIDs (Advil), better to not start aspirin without PCP recommendations. ...Read more
