Urgent (chest pain)
Hello, Im 25 and a software engineer, have been experiencing a lot of pain in the right side of my chest since the last 2 days.. I can't perform any actions or take deep breaths without feeling that pain. My ECG reports are normal and the doctor said it could be related to the bones. Could you please guide me as to what to do next? Today it the pain was also on the left hand side.. I think it's getting worse

Hello, Don't worry, Life threatening cardiac problem is ruled out. It is not the bone problem. Your pain is specific - Breathing aggravates it. Which means muscles which is attached to the ribs would have gone to acute spasm. It could be any muscle 1.Scalene anterior 2.Pectoral is minor 3.Intercoastal muscles.
Next Steps
Just try (you tube) a)Neck stretches (upper trapezious and scelene complex) b) Chest (pectorals) stretch on doorway b) Applying hit towel fermentation around the neck 10mins
Health Tips
Stop your diagnosis marathon. Try my simple advice and continue the medication which is been prescribed for 5 days. If your pain is not subsiding then meet a Physiotherapist for a detailed assessment and manual therapy.

I think you have strained your breathing muscles. A simple soft tissue release for the affected muscles might be able to give you relief. Also, try applying ice pack locally for 12min and repeat it 5-6 times a day. Do this for 2 days and see if it's helping you. Kind Regards, Dr Kshama Dhawan Shah Polyclinic
