Lower chest pain, increasing pain. Is that worth worrying? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
From the past two days, I have pain in my right lower chest area.
I'm 24 yrs old, male.
and today it seems to have increased, and every time I bend or sit down (like on the floor) the pain increases
is it anything to be worried about?
will it subside by itself?
Can you grade the severity of pain in a scale of 1 to 10?
Do you have nausea, vomiting or fever?
Do you have cough or breathing issues?
Does the pain increase/reduce after food?
Do you consume alcohol?
no it is same after food as well
i consume alcohol
like once in 2-3 months
Does it hurt when you press the right upper part of abdomen?
but i had consumed alcohol like 1-2 days before this pain started
on pressing the chest part it pains.. but very little.. on scale of 1-10, the pain is like 2..
Let me brief you.
Considering the fact that you do not have cough and breathing problems, it is unlikely you have an lung/chest related issues.
Therefore what you have could be related to gall stones and alcohol related issues.
actually i'm realising that it's not really lower chest area..
If the pain is discomforting, you need to consult a surgeon and get some tests such as liver function test and ultrasound scan done.
i can say it's right chest area
i have cough issues.. not severe.. but it's been there for past few months.. but not severe
Severe bouts of cough can induce intercostal muscle sprain. However insignificant cough can be unrelated complaint.
I would suggest you to consider consulting a surgeon and get investigated.
I am sure the liver function tests and ultrasound scan will help us determine the cause, its treatment and ways to prevent it in future.
yes the cough is insignificant
which kind of surgeon should I consult?
could this be gastric trouble?
If they are not available closeby, you can visit your family physician.
my family says it must be gastric trouble
Have you followed?
Do you have any other questions?
no other questions. thank you doctor
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
