Hi there ..

Thank you for the question ...

Pain in right side of chest could be Costochondritis or even it can occur because of bad posture while sleeping .

It would be ideal for you to continue Tab Aleve for pain for at least 3-5 days and also apply locally Ibuprofen gel at bed time .

You will be ok in couple of days .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please rate my answer as good service .

Thanks .

Hello,

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

There are many causes for right side pain,

incluidng gall bladder, liver, lng causes,

Please let me know the other symptoms, so that I can help you better

Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 8 months ago.

If you think it is posture related, you need to take a muscle relaxant with Ibuprofen and chlorzoxazone and Ibuprofen combination, which is available in the pharmacy.

This gives a quick relief than plain Ibuprofen.

Hope that helps.
