Exclamation Totally out there i know

I know this is kinda out there yall but. since i see everyone on this Forum page as family i thought i share something and see if i could get any opinions. Since this morning ive been having pains in my right chest and when i bend down its a stabbing pain also happens when i breathe deeply. My breathing has been heavier then usual for a few weeks and never had the chest pain till now. any ideas on what it could be?

Go get it checked out as it sounds like something in your lungs .... Stabbing pain is not good . Heavy breathing could be a host of things due to improper excercise , related to diet , smoking , drinking etc . Would not hurt to get a chest X Ray ....

It could be a pulled rib cage muscle too but like stated above, better to get it checked out and make sure.

what kind of workouts do you do because that could be a factor? i had that happen before but i was a powerlifter and it came mainly from deadlift and powercleans, but i never had a permenant problem would just be there for awhile. But best thing would to probably get it checked out man.

It could be a host of things from a panic attack to something much more serious. My dad's girlfriend is a nurse and awhile back my wife was complaining of chest pains. Her response was, "Go to ER", and as it turned out, my wife had a bladder infection. Obviously, guys rarely get that, but anytime chest pains are a symptom, patients are told to go in right away. At our local hospital, there is even a sign that says, "Let attendant know if experiencing chest pains" since it could be more serious and those experiencing that discomfort get taken right away. I wouldn't hesitate especially if it is sudden.

I'm having the same problems Daniel and i'm only 20, been happening for the past 5-6 years now, do you smoke or live/ever lived with smokers? i think that could be a cause but idk. it only hurts like 3 times a week and it feels like your ribs are stabbing your lungs right? starts after doing somewhat heavy cardio work, or any, and goes away after 20 seconds - 3 minutes?

----------

i usually end up breathing really shallow and punch my chest until it goes away, but mine's on my left side
