Sharp pain in chest, diagnosed with flu, pneumonia test negative. Is pain due to flu?
I have been having these sharps quick bursts of pain all over my chest . It feels like fireworks shooting off. I started to get them 4 days ago....they come and go. I also was diagnosed with the flu today, they tested me for pneumonia but that came back negative. Are the pains I am feeling related to the flu, or is this something else?
The sharp pain in the chest could be due to pleurisy which is due to a flu. It can be in your case rarely due to indigestions. Do you find any position increasing or decreasing the pain? Threating your flu should eventually suppress the pain. If the thing is not relieved then you might have to get examined with other investigation. Hope you find my answer useful. Feel free to ask any further questions. Thanking you Dr Samir
