Suggest remedy for chest pain and difficulty in breathing

last wednesday a big dog attacked me. It didn t bite but but it did hit me int he chest real hard. Right after tha I suffered sever chest pain. The following day I noticed that it must have knocked something out of kilter, as my right sholder and just below the scapula was extreamly sore. My co-worker who like me is a massage therpist worked it out for me. It helped me make it through the next two days. On the way to work today I appeared to be okay. Suddenly there was a burning sensation in my chest, I didn t feel any pain but I had difficulty breathing. I almost pulled over I thought I was going to pass out. I got to work and started feeling a bit better but was sweating. Usulay looking foward to getting clients I kept saying to myself please don t call may name. I finally informed the manager I needed to go home. Suddenly I m emotional, where this morning I was okay. I m wondering if this could be some type of after effect after getting hit real hard in the chest by that dog.

The chest pain could be a musculoskeletal lain due to hit by the dog..
You just need to take some oral medicines of pain and also a painkiller gel for local application..
The pain would resolve slowly in a matter of few days..
