I keep getting pains in my side, back, chest, and shoulders. When I get pain in my chest, I struggle to breathe and feel lightheaded. I can only walk ten minutes, and my side really hurts. Kindly help.
Please mention your age and weight. Get investigated for a complete hemogram, blood sugar, blood pressure, and thyroid profile. Also, perform an X-ray cervical spine to rule out cervical spondylitis, ECG (electrocardiogram) to rule out cardiac conditions, and CT (computed tomography) head to rule out any medical or surgical diseases of the brain. It should be differentiated, whether it is muscular or cardiac. Consult a cardiologist or physician.
I would advise,
Use a low cotton pillow.
Do not place your arm under the head.
Avoid strenuous work or exercises till symptoms improve.
Avoid lifting heavy weights.
Take a balanced nutritional healthy diet.
Take plenty of water, fluids, fresh fruits, fresh juice, and salads.
I would also like to know,
Does the pain increase on bending or working, or lying down?
Do you get relieved with certain posture?
Is the pain radiating?
