Sharp pain near solar plexus, hurts while breathing, sneezing, coughing. Reason?
hello, i have a sharp pain near solar plexus and pectoralis major for the last two days. it gets worse while breathing .also i can feel some sort of muscle movement under my left rib cage when touched. feels like the pain starts from my ribs and travels to chest .i do stretches regularly.sneezing/coughing makes it even worse.thank you.
From the available information, you probably have spasm of muscles of the affected parts of the body. A 5 days' course of a combination of anti-inflammatory pain-killers, (such as ibuprofen + paracetamol) and muscle relaxant drug, (such as, chlorzoxazone) should be enough to cure the pain.
Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he agree with me and will prescribe suitable treatment as advised.
