You seem to be having left sided chest pain increased on inspiration. Please visit the ER/ a Pulmonologist and do not try to manage it yourself. The pain described by you seems to be a pleuritic chest pain
and could be due to any pleural pathology like pleurisy, pleural effusion
. All these conditions need to be managed in a hospital care setting. Fluid or air collected in the pleural space in the chest needs to be drained unless the quantity is minimal. In case of pneumothorax addition of oxygen therapy
hastens the recovery. Also the cause of any pleural pathology if present needs to be investigated like if it is primary or secondary to any disease like tuberculosis
, COPD etc.
Thus you need to visit ER/ your doctor/ Chest physician or Pulmonologist urgently.
