Tips, advice, "me too"s?

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

Lately, from exercising daily for the most part, whether consistent for a time, or here and there through the day, I have chest pain.. not like on either particular side, just the center of my chest, between my boobs, below my collar bone dip area.... It hurts here and there, and when it's acting up, bringing my shoulders towards one another/arms crossing/in front causes the pain to flare... it's not all day, but I'm thinking inflammation from the exercise....

and my lower back, between the dip and tailbone, is strained.

Taking motrin/ibuprofen for swelling and we will see...

If you're reading this and have lost 30+LBs (13kg+, 2stone+), did you suffer body aches/pains as your body adjusted itself? Are there pains, aches, or things not talked about often that can be experienced with the whole weight loss? Like, people have reported being gassier, urinating more, feeling colder, hair falling out, etc..... so what were some obvious and noteable things that you could share?

I'd have made a community post but figure I'd put this here, first.
Advice, tips, anything for heads up of things to expect and or how to relieve ailments thru the process is welcomed!~

Honestly, I just wanted to find out what others have had to deal with, the cons that go with weight loss.

Chest pain is muscles....like I knew it was...

    I think a visit to the doctor is important when it comes to chest pain. So many things can present as chest pain.
    Please take care,
    And good luck.
    (I’ve had chest pain several times, and the reasons were varied: asthma, gall bladder, GERD, and just sore muscles. Only a doctor is best for diagnosis).

    i have to agree with stars2000, that pain could be anything from arteries to gallstones

    Please be cautious with any type of chest or upper back pain. If it continues, get checked out by your Dr. (Partially blocked arteries can cause all different types of referral pain). Be careful & aware. ✌
