Cardiologist 's  Response

The first thing to do is ask the child for possible injury - fall or hit, while playing. Children forget.
Did you notice anything abnormal - contusion, swelling...?

She must be taken to the doctor. Physical examination, followed by X-ray chest - will in most cases, be able to detect the cause. Till then, calpol is good and safe

Good luck
