I am a 20-year-old male who has been experiencing bad chest pains for the past few weeks. I have been taking the tablet Maxigesic, which did not help with the pain. Then I went to the hospital and was given the tablet Endone, which did not work with the pain either. Today I took the tablet Prodeinextra, which is not helping with the pain and is getting worse. It is migrating to my left back shoulder, and it is excruciating. I have also been feeling very sick. I feel pain in my chest and back when I cough, lie down, or sneeze, and the doctor told me that it was muscular pain, but I want a different opinion because the pain is not getting any better, and painkillers are not helping the pain
I read your query and can understand your concern.
Musculoskeletal pain is characterized by tightness and dull aching pain that increases with respiration and movement, and the chest may be tender.
Other possible causes include heart attacks, but they are less likely as you do not have the risk factors.
Are you a diabetic, hypertensive, heavy smoker, or have a positive family history?
For musculoskeletal pain, I suggest applying Voltaren gel (Diclofenac sodium) thrice daily for one week. And apply Deep heat cream (Menthol, Eucalyptus oil, Methyl Salicylate), thrice daily for two weeks.
I hope this helps.
Thank you and take care.
