am I going to die?
does it hurt when you breathe in or is it just general erkkkkkkkkk
it's like when you really need a shit, but higher up (just underneath my lungs, I think), like I've got a constant stitch maybe?
haven't done anything strenuous.
and take some painkillers to see if that stops it.
I'll stop pretending to be a doctor now.
I think it might just be from not having a proper seat to sit in while I'm back at home, I've just been kind of half slouched on a bed while I'm watching tv/laptopping. But it didn't happen last time I was home.
because that'll do it
I spose I'll have to go to the doctors tomorrow.
But I only have half the symptons of that.
it's completely harmless, the cartlidge between your ribs has swollen
may create tight chest sensations, chest pains as well as localized pain around the left shoulder/upper arm
But if you get chest pains you are advised to go to hospital
chest pains is SRS BSNS.
It's just worth getting it checked to rule out anything properly bad, cos if you let it lie you'll be fucked, basically.
Is there anyone on DiS that doesn't have it?
and was right
i still have it, back to the doctors tomorrow. it is SOOOOO grim!
take four of those a day.. thats all the doctor will give you anyway. Try it and see if it works
I'll diagnose myself with the help of google + your suggestions later.
where exactly is the pain? does the pain go anywhere else?
what kind of pain is it - aching, burning, stabbing?
what makes it better or worse - eating, lying down, deep breathing, etc?
do you feel nauseous? have you lost your appetite?
Just below my ribs, mostly on the right.
Stabbing, hurts when I breathe.
deep breathing hurts more, and so does laughing/coughing etc. I haven't tried lying down since I got out of bed, but it hurt while I was in bed.
nope and nope
I reckon it's either pleurisy or you've got some muscle inflammation in your chest wall. I'd take some ibuprofen and get it checked out tomorrow if you can.
anything I can do with a stethoscope if I find one lying about (mum's a nurse)
I barely do, half the time.
only paracetamol, cocodamol and tramadol (god knows why we have tramadol), what shall I take?
although, Tramadol will almost certainly make it hurt less!
well, that and my mothers birth control pills and some cat flea pill things, are they likely to help?
It's not too bad if I sit still, lying down is pretty shitty though.
Oh wait, I just had the stethoscope on the wrong way.
I don't why I bother sometimes.........
Can you multiply?
He needs a hat!
will try again tomorrow. Getting out of bed was fairly painfull, and just walking around seems to hurt now. I think I'm gonna just stay sat here I think.
Yes. Yes you will die.
From this pains? Doubt it.
You're one of the awesome local ones. :(
RIP SJH. We hardly knew ye.
Your chest is fine.
bs is it a pulled muscle, I've not even done anything to pul a muscle, silly bint.
