Chest pain after exercising. Hurts to inhale deeply. Could you shed any light?

I started excercising again after a long time, cycling for 4km. This was the day before yesterday. Afterwards I experienced a pain in my chest , about an inch from the centre to the right, and located higher than my heart . I would say in the middle between my diaphram and my collarbone. I feel it when I move my right arm inwards across my chest, or take very deep breaths, or inhale very deeply and keep my breath. Yesterday I skipped rope for 15min and did 30 dips on chairs. The pain is still there when move. Could you shed any light please?

Thanks for posting your query.

Pain in right side of the chest you have after excercising after a long time seems to be due to muscular strain.

I advice you to stop heavy excercise for few days.

You can take anti inflammatory drug like Motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) for pain and muscle relaxant to relif the spasm after discussing with your doctor.

Wishing you good health
