My whole upper body is sore including my back chest and neck. I am having a breathing problem

So we had trampoline for P.E. today at school and we had to do a front flip well i didn t flip fast enough and ended up slamming down on the trampoline on my upper back. My chin slammed on my chest , and i couldn t breath for a couple of seconds like maybe 10. Now my whole upper body is sore including my back chest and neck. Well my chest hurts when i try to take a deep breath. Also when i got off the trampoline i tasted blood all in my mouth. And no i didn t bite my tongue or anything.

I would think you would be sore..oh, boy, you poor girl. I don't think it is necessary to go to the DR, because what I think happened is you are all sore from tensing up from falling-your muscles are sore and righteously so. If you are still experiencing any kind of breathing problem-YES, go to the Dr. You didn't mention that so I am assuming you are not, but IF you do-GO. You will probably be sore for a few days...take Tylenol every 4 hours and a warm bath or shower to make yourself more comfortable...and feel better.

Hello and thank you for your time. I ve been having some minor to severe back pains for a while now, from what I believe originally stemmed from a pinched nerve in my upper neck. A few weeks later, however, my once isolated back pain has spread to more or less my entire upper body. I ve had multiple chiropractic visits and massages in this time, but my condition has only worsened. The latest development seems to be a seizing up of the chest that s made it difficult for me to breathe and swallow. I can very clearly feel it as food goes down my throat, and breathing has been labored throughout the day. There is no comfortable standing, sitting, or lying position, and I am often kept awake at night by my inability to find comfort. To ease the pain I have taken aspirin and ibuprofin, sometimes at the same time. What are your thoughts on this matter? Thank you again for your time.

For several years now I ve had difficulty breathing due to what feels like the muscles around my rib cage constricting. It feels like I can t expand my chest properly. In addition i ve had severe back, shoulder and neck pain accompanying this. For awhile i had tingling in my hands, feet and face, but this went away after awhile. Tests were negative for cancer, lupus, arthritis, and pericarditis. Chest Xrays were normal. Blood tests /did/ show severe anemia, but improving my diet by adding more red meat only stopped the tingling. Medication allergy was ruled out by taking me off them. Anxiety ruled out. Anti inflammatories and inhalers are NOT effective against it. Every doctor I ve seen about this has been stumped. The sleep supplement Melotonin has actually been /very/ effective against it. But the supplement started causing rapid heart rate. Still, when i finished, the condition was 95 to 99 percent GONE. The most recent Doctor insists its asthma because he ordered a methocholine test. But the methocholine test made it WORSE. It caused an acute asthmatic reaction where i d previously had NO history of asthma, undid /all/ the good done by the melatonin, and then made a bad situation worse. And the doctor REFUSES to believe that it /wasn t/ asthma causing the problem. Present in the place i was living at at the time were high amounts of bleach and ammonia based cleaners, dust, mice, insects. The woman I was renting a room from used easy off EVERY time she cleaned and the smell of the easy off, ammonia, lysol and bleach would cause a breathing reaction. In addition, she lent me something she said was a tylanol sleep aid, was marked as a sleep aid, but after things I went through with her i do NOT trust her anymore. Preexisting conditions: Aspergers disorder, lypoma (benign fatty growth), Fibroma (benign fibrous growth), /extreme/ period pains, intestinal difficulties, dust allergies, wool allergies, occasional pet allergies, and hayfever. Family health problems that I don t have but are genetic to my mother and father include high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, depression, and anxiety. Everyone i ve seen has tried to make it seem like anxiety or attention seeking behavior, believing its all in my head when I m in REALLY serious physical distress! I need a list, something that I can look up and reference and BRING to my doctor.

I m a 44 y/o woman in excruciating pain all day every day. I do NOT look forward to going to bed because the pain doesn t get better. I have a lot of sever back pain in my lower back that extends to my right hip/leg. I can barely bend over to tie my shoes as it s painful to stand up. It s painful to sit/sleep. And if I m washing dishes, in a bout 5min time the pain crawls UPward to my back and the back of my neck (I get a lot of pressure on the lower part of my neck to the point it hurts to lay my head back). I ve tried the OTC and nothing is working to subside the pain.I enjoy biking...but even bending over t grab the handles is painful as is the sever pain behind my left knee. I enjoy walking a lot...but not w/o sever pain in my hip and back. And the heavy swelling in my hands and feet. I m 44/ 5 11 (I don t know what I weigh.. but I look like I m between maybe 150-180) HWP I don t have insurance due to my company I can afford to see a Dr. at this time. But this pain isn t just painful, it s scaring me. I don t sleep.....In about a weeks times, I m lucky if I can close my eyes for 5 hours of rest because of this pain. I m also noticing (in the last 12mnths)that I m having trouble breathing if I m climbing a high steep of stairs/or hill top. This has never been an issue for me. But in the last yr. I ve been getting short of breath in a short span of time during my walking/jogs/climbs... Now for an GYN dr.....I m noticing that my menstrual are NOT reg. they are coming more early. NOT with cramps as that s not something I ve ever experienced. In fact the tender breasts don t happen either. Rather, and don t laugh. my body (no matter how healthy I eat)...but prior to my body is always every day/every hour/almost min after min......seems to be producing a lot of gas. To the point my whole abdominal/chest area is painful/bloated. This started about 6+ mnths ago.....and it s not comforting at all. It s very painful and it doesn t help the back pain I already am dealing with. I just need someone to help me figure out what s wrong. I try to get through healthy living as possible...but the pain feels like it s crippling me.......I need some help and answers... Anyone? Thanks Sharon
