Pregnancy. Had a muscle pull on right side of stomach, hurts to breath. Should I be concern?

Hello! I had pulled a muscle on my right side of my stomache and I m in soooooo much pain. It hurts to breathe and move. I m 38 weeks pregnant and having some contractions but when they happen my right side hurts and tightens my pulled muscle and I wanna cry it hurts that bad. Is this something to be concerned about?

Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

I am sorry you are in pain.
The muscular strain would normally be treated with anti inflammatory pain medication but you would not be able to use that because of the pregnancy, however you can use paracetamol to help with pain relief. This can be safely used in pregnancy.
In addition , you need to rest and apply a cold pack to the area.

If the pain continues or worsens then you need to visit your doctor for an assessment.

I hope this helps
