Argh, feel like I am always posting in this section over the past year or so!
Is it possible to pull something without knowing and it all of a sudden be painful? I have a wicked pain in my armpit and chest (front and back on one side) and it hurt to put my coat on this afternoon.
Any ideas? Have I just pulled myself (given the most strenous thing I did today was eat my sandwich, I'm not sure how ) and whats the best thing for muscular pain?
It sounds like you have pulled you pectoiralis major (sp?), it's the muscle that goes under your breast. A warm water bottle should help along with some ibuprofen. It sounds really painful. Do remember to call NHS direct if you are worried or if it gets worse.
I've had a tense neck for a while, I made my mum give me a massage the other day as my neck was really painful; and her hands are not as painful as my DH's who hurts me when he massages my neck! But this is on the other side. Never mind. Have some vouchers for a spa, maybe its a sign to use them!!
