Pain in the chest, shortness of breath and wheezing. Reason?

The last 2 weeks I ve been getting a pain in my chest . In the middle but slightly to the right. Pain has woken me up from my sleep few nights ago and I had to take pain killers to get back to sleep. Nothing seems to trigger the pain it just comes on whether I m laying down or sitting up. After the pain disappears if I push the area where it was coming from its quiet tender. Today there s some new symptoms, im not sure how to discribe the feeling but it s like a rumbling,gurgling feeling in that area and I seem to be wheezing now with a bit of shortness of breath. Just wondering what do you think it could be or any advice Kind regards

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You need to be examined by a Physician -
Chest Infection, asthma have to be checked out...

There is no mention of age, gender, habits or co-morbidities...Even an ECG, X-ray chest and lab tests may be required. Only an examination can tell...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Thanks for posting your query.
Tender chest pain suggests muscular strain or bony discomfort. It can be relieved by taking acetoaminophen/naproxen. But associated wheezing and breathlessness may indicate pneumonia which can be viral or bacterial.
You should avoid any stress. Visit your doctor and perform x-ray chest and CBC to exclude pneumonia.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
