Had a cough for a while but dong think it's that , could it be a pulled muscle

Yes a muscle spasm/pulled muscle could be the cause or a pleuritis (inflammation of the lining of your lungs). Pleuritis or walking pneumonia, is a viral infection that may require a short dose of steroids to resolve. May I suggest you apply heat to the area and take Advil or Aleve. If the pain is still present in 24-48 hours then medical evaluation is suggested by a visit to your doctor. If the pain gets worse, then a visit to an Urgent Care Center may be of value.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, so I am compensated for my service, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you

It's in my neck as well so feels more like a muscle spasm

The heat and NSAID should make you feel better in 24 hours, if not then a visit to your doctor will get to a cause and treatment. If you are concerned about this being related to your heart, relax, it is not. It is most likely a pulled muscle.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

Oh I have several lol. It started about a year ago with just
It started about a year ago with just low grade fever in the evening time each day with body aches. Then about 6 months ago I started getting this very severe aching pain behind and around my right upper shoulder blade that started progressing rapidly each day along with SWOLLEN lymph nodes. The pain and inflammation by my shoulder blade got worse and worse and within a month I had to quit my job mainly because of this but by this time I had severe fatigue and shortness of breathe which made simple tasks such as taking a shower seem like a workout. I seen my primary care physician and what I thought was a SWOLLEN lymph node on my collarbone turned out to be my actual collar BONE itself. It, my shoulder blade, and even my ribs mainly my left rib seemed inflamed. Normal chest xrays and cbc blood tests BESIDES the first cbc my liver enzymes were slightly elevated but the next cbc test I had done they were normal, with another normal chest xray. But the inflammation by my right shoulder as well as the pain never subsided but only got worse and eventually you could actually see the inflammation down the whole right side of my back INCLUDING up the right side to my shoulder making it hard to use to my right arm. My latest new symptoms have been my feet,ankles, and knees that had severe inflammation and pain on the top of my feet, my ankles, making it impossible to put on any skinny jeans or shoes BESIDES one pair I own. My bones are still inflamed, I still run fevers and fell achy and sick in the evenings but now they've begun to flare up at random times during the day. My bones that are inflamed (right collar BONE, left rib,) do not hurt or cause any pain what so ever. The most severe pain and the main debilitating symptom is the pain behind and around my right shoulder blade. My lymph nodes swell up then go back down then swell up again randomly. Also I forgot to mention the pain that's severe by my right shoulder is deep and I can feel it in the right side of my chest around, behind, and above my right breast. I also have a SWOLLEN muscle in the right side of my back that's been there the whole time that I also mistaken as a SWOLLEN lymph node the whole time. … read more
