User :   I had a local anaeshetic to reset a broken wrist on 3rd March. Since last Friday I have had some chest pain to the touch, and in the mornings on getting up I have had fairly strong pains in my chest that appear to be getting lower. Do not feel discomfort during the day although my chest is sore to touch.
Are these normal after effects of the anaesthetic or should I get medical attention?
