I have had pain in my right chest area. (where my breast is)

Customer Question
I have had pain...

I have had pain in my right chest area. (where my breast is) for a couple weeks. I did go in and get a chest xray and they said it was clear. They gave me muscle relax med and it's doing nothing. Could this be a blood clot? I have pain and it's very tender. Hurts all day and night. What should I do?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?

No never had before and it hurts to take deep breath's in

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I did have phenomena on July 4th and that is why I went back on 7/28 to make sure my lungs were clear - which the xray did show.

that is good.

how intense is this pain in the right chest area? on a scale from 0-10?

do you have it all the time, or it comes and goes?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Pain is here all the time
I would say 7-8 level
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

that is pretty intense.

have you tried any ibuprofen or aleve?

sometimes you can get an inflammation of your ribs or cartilage with a condition called costochondritis.

this can be very painful, sometimes feel like a heart attack

the good news its that costochondritis inflammation of the cartilage and ribs do respond well to NSAID non steroidal anti-inflammatory treatments like ibuprofen and aleve

Ok. Thank you
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 year ago

you are welcome

make sure you take the iburprofen with food in your stomach

you can try 200-600mg of ibuprofen every 6-8 hours after meals and with plenty of water and see if this helps your rib pains.
