Hi, Thanks for your question. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. Have you tried anything for that pain? Regards

Ibuprofen 800mg
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 1 year ago.

Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. As per symptoms this is typically a muscular pain due to a pulled muscle during cough. There can be an associated pinched nerve as well. Don't worry, I will address your question in two aspects; what you can do yourself and what your doctor can do for you. As far as what you can do yourself is concerned in such situations you can try OTC tablet Aleve, 500 mg twice daily for 5 days. It is better and stronger than Ibuprofen. Massage the area with OTC Bengay gel twice daily and apply heating pads twice daily. Hopefully you will feel much better. If symptoms persist after that, see your doctor as you may need physical therapy but don't worry, I reassure you that there is nothing serious and you are going to be alright. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. You can come back here to ask anything even after you have rated the answer. I will be glad to help you always. Regards
