Why Am I Having Occasional Pain, Burning Sensation In The Right Chest From Chest Infection
Most likely musculoskeletal
Left chest pains when touched. Are you able to pinpoint the pain? Is there pain while breathing deeply?
X-ray chest is clear. That is reassuring, that the pain is not from lungs. Though it can be confirmed with a CT scan of chest.
It doesn't seem to be coming from heart also. Although an ECG is required to rule it out.
Pain is either from pleura or the musculoskeletal system. Kindly answer the above questions so that I am able to differentiate between the two.
Waiting for your reply.
To answer your question I have no trouble while breathing and neither does it hurt to breathe
And yes I can pinpoint the pain even though at times the pain shoots through my arm and my back begins to ache as well.
Its mostly musculoskeletal
From your description, its mostly musculoskeletal. But I am not able to rule out a spinal or disc problem. It does need an orthopedic consultation. See an orthopedic surgeon for further management. An X ray of spine maybe needed. Avoid lifting heavy weights. Also avoid any postures that make the pain worse. Exercises that strengthen the back muscles can be helpful.
Also get an ECG done and rule out any potential heart problem by an internal medicine specialist (chances are less).
