Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Grout is mixture of cement and sand used as concrete in filling the cracks on the walls. It is possible that you may be allergic to cement following which you started feeling pain in your chest and other body parts. Another possibility is development of pneumothorax. That means because of lifting of heavy weight, some air leaked around the lungs. After air is collected in large amounts, you start feeling pain in chest and other body parts. To confirm this, you should do a chest X-ray. It will definitely give us the cause of your chest pain. For time being, painkiller medicines will help to alleviate pain but after X-ray, definite treatment can be given.
