Brief Answer:
Take painkillers.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

If your symptoms occur first time then you should not worry about all that, it may be a simple muscle pull or fatigue during previous days heavy work or sometimes we sleep with arm underneath our head may also cause all this.

You should take tablet ibuprofen or naproxen, and apply hot packs for 30 mins in morning and evening.

If pain does not stop then take muscle relaxant along with painkillers by prescription of your doctor.

Avoid doing heavy work for next 4-5 days.

I hope it helps.

I had bladder surgery on Tuesday. I am a 44 year old female weighing 250 pounds, am confined to a wheelchair and my ms has been spiralling downward throughout the summer. After surgery, when the anesthesiologist removed the breathing tube, I began having severe chest spasms and breathing problems. He said that if he could not get them under control, they would have to keep me in the hospital. They were able to give me muscle relaxers and valium by IV which worked, after giving me pills which did not work. Early this afternoon, I began wheezing, and it has gradually gotten worse. What could be going on?

Hello, I have an adjustable gastric band that was placed in June 2005. It was completely emptied over a year ago. Recent imaging shows that there is still a signifant amount of restriction. At this moment, I am suffering severe (perhaps a 7 on a scale of 1-10) pain in my chest in the vicinity of the band, which pain flows in waves through my chest and then down through my stomach. I have taken a muscle relaxant, cyclobenzaprene 10 mg) and 800 mg of Ibuprofen, and I believe that both have passed through the band restriction as I am able to drink hot tea. I need to know what else I can do to alleviate this pain without going in for emergency surgery to have the band removed. It is Christmas Eve here and everything is closed.
