Back pain after asthma attack

Has anyone else experienced something similar?

I have recently been discharged from hospital after 8days where i was treated for a chest infection and asthma exacerbation and i am now suffering from severe back and rib pain! paracetamol does not seen to be doing much to help either! Any one have any other suggestions, i would be eternally grateful?

I know exactly how you must be feeling.

I'm currently experiencing something similar.

I have been prescribed by my GP Co-Codamol 30/500mg and Tramadol 50mg.

I hope you start to feel better soon.

Have GP on wednesday so will see what he says!


Good luck with your GP appointment.


I'm having exactly same problem I like zapain it does the trick with me. I went today and the doctor prescribed them. You could try heat pads there like a beanie bag from asda or b&m kinda shops you just shake them and they react forming heat. X hope ur back pain goes asap for u x hugs x
