Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
I am online and happy to help you with your question today.
Do you have any other symptoms, such as a change in your ability to breath?
Does the sensation change with breathing, movement etc?
breathing no but movement yes
Yes, it might be a pulled muscle from sleeping funny if you are not having any other symptoms.
what other things should I look for that might suggest something else , this doesn't sound like a heart issue does it?
it could also be an increase in your costochondritis.
did you see my reply
No. Not from what you have posted.
Actually....only the one where you asked if it could be a heart issue....other ones may not have come through
what can I try to releave this, my sister felt my rib area and said it was really tight, she was a nurse, okay so that I understand ...this could be a heart issue?
No. I do not think it is a heart issue. I would suggest using a heat pad and trying some tylenol.
okay , thank you
would it be okay to use Ice in this area
If it is not better tomorrow, have your MD check it out......but, I do believe that you will be OK in the long run
Yes. If would be OK.
my pleasure Connie
