Customer Question

Pain in right side of chest under breast...hurts when I take deep breaths

Hi there,

Muscle pull related pain is most likely.

Deep breathing requires the use of these muscles.

That results in pain.

No resting shortness of breath or lack of pain in the left side, do not likely suggest any heart related probem or even blood clots in the lung or pneumonia.

Avoidance of stretching, heavy lifting, and Over the counter naproxen 2 tabs twice daily can be tried.

I will suggest you to see your doctor for clinical evaluation as well since I am not able to examine you online.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
