Shoulder and chest pain with nasal blockage

Hello doctor, last month after taking CT scan, I have nasal blockage , to my surprise doctor (ENT SPL) told it’s not due to sinus.

3 months ago I got a pain in chest and shoulder, I took ECG , ECHO, and Treadmill test . All are normal. Then why the chest pain is existing till now?

  1. Hello, Thank you for posting your question on MediMetry.
    The pain which you are facing could be due to simple inflammation or swelling of the soft tissue around the ribs it is called costochondrtitis. Can happen in the shoulder joints also.
    You could give hot formentation locally to that area or you could also apply any over the counter anti inflammatory ointment such as volini gel.
    Also please get an x ray of the chest AP view including the shoulder joints.
    Hope this helps
    Best wishes
