Upper Right (my Right) Chest Pain Since Saturday. About 2
Pericarditis, Lungs, costochondritis
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
It seems to be acute pericarditis. Inflammation of lining of heart, may corelate with appearance of a viral infection. Second on my list would be a lug condition. Third on my list is costochondritis.
Since the pain is positional and sharp, it is less likely to be acute coronary syndrome.
I will suggest a chest X ray, ECG, Cardiac and lung physical examination. Followed by further tests as required.
Management is pain killers in pericarditis and costochondritis. Otherwise specific management is according to the cause. So yes you need to see a doctor urgently to pinpoint the diagnosis.
Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
