Hello doctor,

I have been having chest pain for three months. The pain has started since I started going to the gym. Recently, it has become more frequent; however, it is tolerable. I have undergone an X-ray for the complaint. Kindly advise.



Welcome to I understand your concern. You have musculoskeletal pain due to strain of muscles during exercising. I suggest the below treatment plan for three to five days. Apply Arnopen Liniment (Ayurvedic Formulation) twice a day. Apply a heating pad twice a day. Tablet Pan 40 (Pantoprazole) once daily on an empty stomach. Tablet Zerodol (Paracetamol and Aceclofenac) twice daily. Tablet Trinerve LC (Levocarnitine, Methylcobalamine, and Folic Acid) once daily. The chest X-ray is normal. I suggest you take rest along with the use of medicines. I hope this helps. Thank you.
