i have this pain just under the collar bone on the left side, if you touch the muscle it pains, coughing,sneezing or even picking up some thing is extremely painfull. i have been to the doctor and he says that it is pulled or strained muscle but this has gone on for a week now and the pain hasen't got any better, is this a muscle problem or is this something else i need to worry about?

  • Sounds musclar skeletal and could go on for weeks if not corrected. Go and see an osteopath, as the previous poster to my reply stated, you may have lifted something in an awkward way or carried something too long, very easily done.A pilates practitioner on a one on one basis can also be invaluable if you are not using correct posture, even incorrect posture can cause what you describe.Agape,searchingsam
