Hello doctor,

Three weeks ago I was involved in a domestic fight and suffered a hit on the area below my right breast. I had a chest x-ray done and it revealed no rib injury. Currently, I am taking Myospaz tablets. Even after taking the medicines for three weeks, I am still experiencing so much pain especially when I sit in a laid-back position and when I sleep on my right side. Kindly advise whether I should seek another opinion. Please guide.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I would suggest a follow up x-ray in different views to look for rib fracture.
  • This can very well be costochondritis (inflammation of the cartilage) due to trauma.
  • Try using Ibuprofen 600 mg twice daily as needed for pain along with Myospaz (Chlorzoxazone).
