What Could Cause Pain Under The Breasts And Breathing Difficulty Upon Physical Exertion?

Hi my daughter is a competitive gymnast and is 16 years old. She had a cold about a month ago and at end started to have pain in middle of chest under breasts upon laughing hard or physical activity such as going up steps. We have been to see the pediatrician twice now and had a chest x-ray. She is now having pain in the middle of her back with these episodes. She also seems like it's hard to breath during these pain episodes that last around 5 minutes. Not sure what type of doctor I should schedule her to see

Pulmonologist 's  Response
Hello,

As you explain the situation it would be better for you to send to a pulmonologist specialist. Probably he/she should repeat the chest X-ray and an abdominal ultrasound will be ordered for her.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Jnikolla, Pulmonologist
