Been having right sided chest pain that's getting worse. Starting to radiate up into the shoulder and around into the back. Hurts to take breath. Not sure if pulled muscle cause I can move right arm and lift things without problems. Pain comes and goes and gets worse everytime. Should I be worried? Have been getting light headed little bit. It's going on 3-4 days and only getting worse. Can feel a wheeze top of rite lung till I cough which hurts alot to. Cough isn't bad but pain is starting to get excruciating. Please any advise will help. Tried calling to get appointment with Dr appointment but they wouldn't even make me one. Told me to go to emergency room. I don't think it's muscle strain but if any advise on what it could be please help. I would rather not go to ER for something I can take care of at home. Have tried hot and cold packs have very strong pain meds that does not touch the pain. Getting worried cause pain only getting worse. Please help.

Hello, Anon. Thank you for posting.

No one over the internet can diagnose you or recommend treatment. You need to be evaluated by a doctor. Even though chest pain on the left side is typically associated with a heart attack, any unexplained chest pain should never be ignored.

For future, urgent questions should not be addressed to our site - we answer member questions within 24 hours. If you feel you have an urgent medical situation, call your doctor or 911.

I hope you will seek medical care right away. Keep us updated.
