While moving file cabinets, boxes, etc, in the office last week, I believe I pulled my serratus anterior on my right side.
I am having extreme pain while trying to breathe (as well as coughing, and I am getting over a cold!), decreased range of motion of my right arm, difficulty lifting heavy objects, tenderness to the touch, pain in my back and chest, and trouble sleeping at night because of the pain.
This is 5 days that I am dealing with this, and I am wondering how much longer I should expect this to last?
Is there anything I can do to lessen the pain besides NSAIDs and trigger point therapy?
Should I be concerned that I may have seriously injured myself?
The pain is some of the worst I have ever experienced in my life.
