Can a pulled muscle in the chest area make you queasy?

I wouldn't be a surprised. A pain in your wrist can make you faint.

I would say yes.
On the other hand there's really no harm to popping an aspirin just in case.

I need some kind of big red light that goes off when I have some discomfort that says "Would an aspirin help here?"

Because more often than not the answer is "yes" and I just don't think of the option. Grr.

Yeah, I actually meant something along the line's of Darlene's response. If you're not that uncomfortable it's probably not a heart attack, but if it is taking an apririn can be a big help. If not, you've at worse only made yourself a little more quesy.

As far as when anti-inflamatories are helpful, anytime something is achy or swollen they can help. I generally don't bother to such meds unless the pain is interrupting with my ability to do things or the achy area feels inflamed or otherwise like bad pain.

Yes, pain can cause queasiness, but unless you actually remember pulling the muscle enough to create the problem, if it doesn't go away promptly and stay away, please see a doctor even if it makes you feel like a fussbudget.
It is probably not a problem, but it might be something. Not only could it be a heart related insufficiency, but it might be heartburn (or reflux), ulcer, kidney, gall bladder (right side including a pain in the right shoulder blade), pancreatitis, constipation, spinal disorder (pinched nerve), torn ligaments, or any of a number of other things for which there is a treatment.

Yeah, I would have brought up something like that but I'm going to see him in a couple of days so if it's still a problem I can pester him in person :)

Kiss it and make it feel better..
I believe there more unanswered questions here. How did you pull that chest muscle? Was there pleasure or pain when it happened??.... We can only wonder how it happened!! Did you have anyone in mind to check it out for you??~wink~

Keep us informed of your healing process and if you incur any other sore muscles....

Are you sorry you asked yet?
You do realize that you are now obligated to provide us with nigh daily reports of said pulled muscle, right?
