Hi

Dr. Abid :

Welcome to justanswer.com

Dr. Abid :

Please tell me do you have difficulty in breathing?

Customer:

no

Dr. Abid :

Since how long you have this problem?

Customer:

I noticed it Sat 1/1/11 and the pressure has increased just a little. It is not sharp just constant. It kind of feels like an upper resp infection but I have never had it on just one side

Dr. Abid :

Do you have fever ?

Customer:

NO

Dr. Abid :

Ok thanks for info as you mentioned that you have history of pressure in upper right chest ,when you press area it hurts you ,you have no history of fever or difficulty in breathing keeping all these facts in mind most possibly you have costochondritis (inflamation of costal cartilages) i will suggest you to use tab naproxen sodium 220 mg twice a day for 3-5 days and locally apply brufen gel ,you will improve.

Dr. Abid :

You have no infection at this time.
