Please proceed with your query
How are you doing today?
Since morning today i am feeling pain on my left side of the chest while breathing..
I am fine , thank you.
It increases gradually when i get up from bed and my breath becomes smaller and smaller say in about 15 minutes i feel like out of breath and pain continues..
Can you grade the severity of pain on a scale of 1 to 10?
while lying in the bed it's 2 when i try to get up and do something it goes till 5 i would say
Does the pain worsen when you move?
if i get up it starts to get bad.. if i am lying in the bed it's all normal..
I understand that, but do you feel this pain is restricting movements such as bending, turning etc?
no for the first few minutes off the bed.. post that it becomes a hurdle and i have to think twice before bending..
Do you have history of cough?
say within 5-7 minutes it is a hurdle.
Based on your description, it is less likely from the heart.
should taking bath in hot water help me then?
However if the pain is severe / worsen its always good to perform ECG.
You can take hot bath.
Apply heat to the affected area and try pain balms
I did that when i was in hospital about a week back all was normal in that..
Ok.. let me do that..
Relaxyl spray is another alternative which you can apply on that area for pain relief.
It most likely seems like muscular ache and it should resolve with these measures.
Do you have any more questions?
Ok.. thank you doctor.
I gues i am good for now untill i take bath and do some remediations..
If it's noth helping me then what should i do?
