Hurts to breathe in

Edited , 6 users are following.

Hi everyone, I'm a 21 year old male, I contracted Coronavirus on Saturday, my symptoms then started on Monday 8th February 2021.

I get a really bad pain in the middle of my chest every time I breathe in or when I cough

I haven't heard of this symptom, could there be an underlying problem with my lungs that I don't know about? anyone else have this?

Thank you

    Hi, i have had the same symptoms too. Tested positive this week, and been having chest pain for a few days. Thursday it was really bad so i called out of hours doctor who advised i should go a&e for bloods and chest xray. Thankfully all came back normal and was told its one of the symptoms of covid. After thursday it is slowly getting better. Hope it eases for you soon!

      Hi I'm glad your symptoms are improving unfortunately for me the pain I'm getting when breathing in has been here for a week now and has been gradually getting worse. Maybe I have to wait it out and ill finally see improvement.. thank you for your reply!

      How was your blood test? I had mine on Saturday and it wasn't good but then I was told it was supposed to not be good, and that to wait and get a new test later this week. I'm especially concerned about ferritin, fibrinogen and C-RP values.

    Itll be pneumonia of the lungs. Do not wait, call ambulance or make your way to hospital. take a bag of clothing for a week at least.

    i caught covid on 1st Jan. tested positive on the 2nd. stayed at home 10 days till i couldnt breath much more and had a high fever. Ambulance took me in and stayed in for 6 days. I hadnt packed. Wasnt a nice ordeal
