Sharp pain in middle back, constricted chest, breathing difficulty after falling down from stairs. Solution?
Fell down the stairs. Landed on my back. The immediate pain was excruciating, felt a big pop and a crack. Couldn t move for several minutes. My chest and back both feel constricted. Its hard to breath. Pain is bad, but better than the immediate pain. I m having trouble breathing . Hurts when I breathe. Middle back, sharp pain
Hi, From history it seems that you got severe strain on your back and chest muscles. Possibility of having fracture of rib is likely. Go for x-ray chest to rule out fracture. Take some analgesic, relaxant medicine for relief. Ok and take care.
