I came back from a ski trip a couple days ago and now my chest and back hurts. At first I was sore and then it lead to pain. I am recently getting over a horrible cold as well so I am wondering if the chest pain is from a strained muscle or if it could be something worse like a chest infection. I feel great and am no longer coughing, I just feel sharp of pain in my chest about 5 inches below the left collar bone when I make a sudden move, breath out and also when I bend over. Sometimes it just happens when I have a lot of movement. I went to the doctor on Monday to get refills for my ADD medication and she also upped my dosage of Vyvanse to 30mgs. (I am on childrens dosage because I don't take to medication very well.) Maybe the chest pain could be from that? I'm really confused and don't want to have to go back to my doctor as she is 30 minutes away from me. Should I stop taking the Vyvanse?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Vyvanse can increase blood pressure which can cause chest pain, so get your blood pressure checcked. It can also be a post viral fatigue syndrome. Costochondritis is another possibility so if you can pinpoint the place of pain, apply a local analgesic and heating pad and see.
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP to run tests and examination to clinch a diagnosis.
