Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.
If your temperature is less than 101F and the chest pain only hurts with deep breaths, start with rest, fluids and over the counter pain relievers. If new symptoms develop or your current symptoms are not improving over the next three days, contact your doctor. Call sooner if symptoms get worse.
For fevers that are higher than 101F, call your doctor for advice. Pleuritic chest pain and higher fever can be symptoms of pneumonia.
