Why do experience pain while breathing?
Hello, Why do I experience pain in my diaphragm while breathing? My upper stomach is often in pain when I inhale. What could be causing this? Is this a thing to be worried? Am I overthinking? I don't feel nauseous or lose appetite but just pain in the diaphragm while breathing? Is it common? What can cause this? Let me know in the comments.
@alaura Hello, it is better to take medical help. Painful respiration can be a sign of a serious medical condition or illness. This often requires immediate medical care. Seek emergency medical care right away. When we breathe, the diaphragm tightens and relaxes as air moves in and out of the lungs. The diaphragm is a large, thin muscle at the bottom of the chest. Due to the position of the stomach just below the diaphragm, pain when breathing can feel as though it is in the stomach when it is actually coming from the diaphragm or other nearby chest muscles and tissues. Stomach pain when breathing can also have several possible causes, such as a hiatal hernia, pleurisy, or acid reflux. Pain while breathing can also indicate a medical emergency. No need to worry, but you should take a complete check-up. Thanks!
