Painful breath, pain in upper chest, shoulder, CT scan, pulmonary embolism ruled out. Advise.
Thanks for your query.
The pain in the chest after just one XXXXXXX breath might be due to a lung infection where a XXXXXXX breath has caused a ruptured bulla due to excessive air pressure.
Another reason might be that there is some injury in your ribcage which is causing you so much of pain.
For getting a relief-
1. you can inhale steam so that the lung tissue opens up and infection subsides.
2. Take a good OTC pain killer and muscle relaxant. Avoid doing any heavy work like exercise or weight lifting, etc.
3. You can use a chest belt to support your ribs and chest muscles.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
