Hi. Welcome to HealthcareMagic. The stitches hurt as everytime you breathe the chest wall moves and the wound is stretched. The cough demands a chest Xray. Please consult a doctor to run few tests on you to understand the cause. Take care

Hi I am a female aged 20 I went to America for the summer and got diagnosed with asthma , which I have never had before. My symptoms were shortness of breath, tight chest like someone was pulling on my trachea and I also got told I had allergies. That was in July. I got back in August and since then I have been getting like a stitch like pain in my chest which feels worse when I breath in. It comes at anytime and it is very dull but uncomfortable pain. At first The pain was on my left side just near the bottom of my ribs but now it feels closer to the centre of my chest. It s probably the most basic simple problem but I have had it for nearly 4 months now and when I went to see my GP he said it probably wasn t asthma and he done a check and said there was like a crackling sound in my left lung . He has sent me for a chest X-ray but stated he is not at all concerned and its just precaution. What s is your opinion please.

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
