Hello doctor,

I had chest pain a few weeks ago, but I had a sore throat infection before that. I am feeling discomfort when breathing and exercising. I feel discomfort, especially in my right breast, while doing my daily workouts and lying down.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As you mentioned, you had a sore throat recently, and after that, only you are experiencing difficulties in breathing and slight pain. It is possible due to that infection, and you have bronchitis leading to pain. Or maybe possibilities of pus formation.

Do you have a cough or left-hand pain along with pain in the chest? What is your blood pressure? Do you still have a sore throat? Please answer my questions so that I can prescribe you medicines.

Thank you doctor,

I do not have any cough, but I have pain on the right shoulder and back. The pain is more on the right side with discomfort in the right breast. I do not know my blood pressure and I do not have sore throat.
