My back pain radiates to chest

Patient: When i get back pain in the middle of my back and it goes into my chest what could that be

 

 

Doctor: You are most probably experiencing a musculo-skeletal strain. Rest , analgesic ointments, good back support and medicati ons like Ibuprofen (NSAIDS) will help. If you noticed that even after taking medications the symptoms are not improving, pain becomes more severe, or you develop breathing difficulty, you may need to consult your doctor. I hope the information helps.
