Hi, well iv been having chest pain right above my sternum and right shoulder after taking deep breaths. I got drunk this weekend and threw up a lot, can that pain be caused by muscle spasms? Im a healthy 21 year old male and ruling out the possible cause of heart attack, the pains been there for almost 2 days and it seems to be graudually going away. If anyone knows anything i would appreciate it, thank you.
I have had this same experience from throwing up. When you throw up, a lot of your muscles in your chest, abs, and back, tense up. If you do this over and over again, your will definitely have some pretty sore muscles afterward. I would take some ibuprofen and try to stretch out the muscles, which should help them feel better.You probably damaged your cardiac sphincter (the one at the top of your stomach- google it) from throwing up. The pain can radiate so you feel it in your chest, arms and back. Usually it heals itself but you can give it a little help by taking an over the counter stomach acid reducer (ask the pharmacist). Something to watch out for is heartburn after it heals, it may be a sign you did more damage than you want and you may need to see your doc. You’ll probably be ok though. DEFINATELY lay off the drinking for awhile!
