Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi Dr Ashori here, how long have you been having the pain for? How did it start?
How old are you and do you have any risk factors for heart disease if I may ask?
Also, if you start moving around is the pain worse? Do you feel shortness of breath?
Is the pain heavy or sharp and do you feel that the pain is radiating down to the finger or could have you have injured the finger separately?
I see you mentioned that you don't have shortness of breath but I meant more if you were to move around, walk around etc.
How is the pain in the chest right now, is it still there?
Okay, basically it sounds safe, likely muscular or cartilage of the chest.
I would say you are okay to rest and maybe take an advil to bring down the inflammation.
Keep an eye on it, see how it is tomorrow. If it's not worse with exertion then you are likely safe and just do some stretches and it should resolve.
Not a problem, if anything changes please let me know.
