I hate to do this, but it's late and I'm in pain

I'm going to see a doctor first thing in the AM, but I know there are some of you in the medical field here who might help. I;m having really bad chest pains all day today. But they're not regular chest pains; more like soreness you get after a work-out. It's been on/off all day today, but now that I tried to lay in bed, I can't move without a serious wave of pain. Feels like my sternum has been dislocated, if that's even possible. What could it be? What can I do to alleviate some pain so I can lay down normally and go to sleep. I'm sitting in a weird and really uncomfortable position.

TIA

Oh no! Pulled muscle? I would take 2 tylenol and prop a few pillows. Hope you get better fast.

it depends where exactly the pain is, but you probably pulled an intercostal muscle (90% sure), which can be fairly painful. you can try taking an anti-inflammatory like aspirin, ibuprofen or naproxen. if you see a doctor, he will be able to see where the pain is and tell you exactly what happened.

don't have anything other than tylenol cold=(
is it possible to pull a muscle in one's sleep?
also, the pain kind of resonates in the back of my neck and shoulders a little.

ps: I don't think I'll be able to get to the kitchen=(

generally if you pull a muscle, the pain wont get bad until the next day.

i'm not sure why you would have pain in your shoulders and neck. does it hurt for you to twist at your waist or cough?

ok then you probably pulled an intercostal and the pain is bad enough that it is radiating to your shoulders. an anti-inflammatory would be ideal, but for now you can also take the tylenol-cold to help with the pain. if it is the nightime formulation and has an antihistamine, that's good too because it will help you sleep.

lol what were you doing yesterday?

Thank you, Vik
I haven't even left my house yesterday. Could be that one time I laid on my stomach while working on a laptop.

you may have twisted or something the wrong way. probably still a good idea to see a doctor in the if the pain is the same in the morning.

I'm sorry you're in so much discomfort.

I agree with Vik (not that he needs my backing, lol); I hope you get relief asap. Keep us posted after your doctor appointment.

Thanks, guys <3
Woke up with the same minor annoyance as yesterday. I hope I don't get paralyzed while on train on my way to work. I'd hate to end up in Harlem.

Diagnosis: Costochondritis
Meds: Naproxen

Might be useful for reference.

I hope you get some relief with the Naproxen. Do they know how you got it? You don't seem to have an infection or anything.

Glad you updated us! I kept checking this thread to see if you were back yet. Feel better.

So far I've been ok all day today, unless I had to put pressure on that area. For some reason it's bad in the morning and at night

I remember now that last week when I left work, i didn't put on a scarf and didn't zip up my coat and it was really cold and windy. Also had a low-cut top on. That probably was the trigger.

Thanks for the love, guys

No wonder I have not heard of Naproxen, interesting:

Aleve became available over-the-counter in most provinces in Canada on July 14, 2009 with the exception of British Columbia, Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Hope you are feeling better Markasatan
