How can I help you?
I believe we had a phone discussion few days ago, how are you now?
Haven't the symptoms improved?
yes,even i cant lift my kid also
Has your cough improved?
Are you still having breathing difficulties?
but i feel the pain regularly
like I mentioned in our last discussion as the Chest was normal
the pain that you have currently is arising from the
tissues of the chest wall.
Both these condition will heal itself as your cough reduces.
Hence the onus is on controlling the cough.
If you are not on any cough syrup, I would suggest you Syp Tus Q
You might take this 1 tsp twice or thrice a day.
Along with it also try steam inhalation.
For the pain,
you can take some antiinflammatory drugs.
You can try any of these medications depending on the severity of the complaints.
soft tissue inflammation worsen with every activity of yours
so it absolutely necessary that you avoid any physical exertion such as lifting weights, children or any other exercise.
You can consider the option of visiting a general physician or pulmonologist.
A thorough examination of the chest can help us rule out any other possibility that I may have missed.
