Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Do you have any shortness of breath associated with this sensation?

Dera customer,

Thank you for replying.

It is likely that your discomfort is due to muscle soreness due to the constant touching and palpation. If you don't have any shortness of breath this discomfort is not concerning and does not indicate any underlying disease. The discomfort will resolve in a day or two. To relieve the discomfort you can take Tylenol. Warm compresses will also help.

Take care.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
