Suggest treatment for pain in upper back and ribs
Also get done chest x ray.
Thanks for your question on HCM.
I can understand your situation and problem.
Pneumonia is consolidation in lungs, infection in lungs.
And for the diagnosis of pneumonia, x ray finding in the form of infiltration or consolidation must be present.
Pneumonia causes cough, fever, expectoration, chest pain.
The reason for chest pain is either of the following.
1. Musculoskeletal pain due to excessive coughing.
2. Pleurisy (inflammation of pleura).
So your upper back and rib pain can be due to any of the above.
Chest x ray is must for the diagnosis of pneumonia. So first get done chest x ray.
You may need antibiotics, antihistamines and anti inflammatory drugs.
Hope, I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health.
