Why Does My Chest Hurt When I Take a Deep Breath?


A number of factors can cause the chest to hurt while taking a deep breath. Asthma is a common cause of chest pain especially because it affects breathing so when a person tries to inhale to catch their breath their chest hurts. A more serious cause could be a heart attack that causes chest tightness when trying to breath. A pulled muscle somewhere in the body could also cause chest pain when taking a deep breath or a fracture to the ribs could cause chest pain as well.
