Question Chest and throat pain - August 30th 2010, 02:09 AM

For the past 2 days, I've been forgetting to take my birth control. So, I've been taking 2 pills so I'm caught up on my days. So, it feels like one of them is stuck in my throat. Then, my chest started hurting today. So, I told my mom what's going on and she didn't help me at all. I'm not sure if I'm getting sick or not. I really hope the pills aren't getting stuck in my throat. This has never happened to me before. It hurts to swallow too. Can someone help me or tell me what's wrong with me?

You can always PM or VM me. I'm always here if anyone needs a friend

I miss you babibear. You were my everything and you always will be

No one believes me about anything. That goes to show I'm not worth it anymore

Hey there

It's very unlikely that a pill is getting stuck in your throat as there are muscles there to help push it down and it will dissolve. Also, most birth control pills don't cause side-effects such as throat or chest pain. It's most likely that the pain you're having is unrelated to the birth control, but it would be a good idea to call and talk to your doctor about it anyways. You may have caught some sort of throat infection, etc. and a doctor is the only person that can tell you for sure.

I hope you feel better soon!

You should deffinetly go see your doctor and it's not likely you have a pill in your throat, I had the same throat and chest pain a while back turns out I had a sinus infection, you could have an upper respitoary infection,sinus infection,bronchitis or even pneumonia all of which can get very serious if they going untreated, if you do have any of these your doctor will most likely put you on antibiotics, really dear I think you should go see your doctor, best of luck dear,hope everything is okay and I hope you feel better

I was born with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis, it causes tumors to grow in my body on nerves,my spine,and under my skin. I have a tumor in the thalamus region of my brain. I also have heartburn,hypothyroidism and secondary adrenal insufficiency these are under control with medication.
I also have hip dysplasia and scoliosis.

Agreed with Ashley. I was actually thinking Bronchitus as soon as I saw the thread title. Definitely go to your doctor!
