Also in May 06 had EKGs, Cardiac CT, echocardiogram, etc etc. all checked out to be absolutely normal.

Hi, I am a 39 yr old female who is at a loss right now. I have/had chest/wall pain for well over 10 years now. My doctor diagnosed me back in 1997 with shingles although I did not have any visible signs of it. Since then, I have had pain ONLY in my left chest wall starting in the middle of my back shooting under my shoulder blade and running all the way under my left armpit to my breast stopping in the middle of my chest, the pain has been so bad that I could not sleep or lay down.

I am an athletic 42-year old female, workout 6x/week running, pilates, biking, and weight training. I have experienced right sided chest wall pain 1" above my right breast for 2 months. The pain is in a small area, about the size of a half dollar. The pain is felt when pressure is placed on the area. Cannot feel any lump. I have no shortness of breath, difficultly breathing. Had a mammogram and breast ultrasound, which both came back normal. My doctor prescribed NSAID, which did not help.
A few months ago I started having pain in my chest wall area, between and also on the upper edges of my breasts. It sometimes aches on its own and is also tender when I press. The tenderness comes and goes. I got a chest X-ray that showed nothing, and my doc said she thought it was probably inflammation of the cartilage in my chest. Since then I've also started having some mild breast pain, more often in my right breast.

does anyone have any problems with chest wall neuropathy? and if so what have you done for help in pain management. I have tried different drugs(which I am currently still taking) physical therapy, inner costal rib injections, tens unit. Can't seem to find any relief for the severe pain. Please help with any ideas. I got this pain from a lung resection surgery I had last July.
Ever since mid June last year I have been experiencing chest wall pain on left side, rib pain on the left side and upper to lower back pain and sometimes pain in left armpit. First time this happened I went to the ER since I had never experienced this feeling before and the doctors there did a EKG, chest x-rays and thought that I had pulled my chest wall muscle. I had a stress test this past Sept.and everything looked great.
The Pulmonologist, after reviewing Clear X-rays, a Clear CT Scan, two PFT's showing normal ranges and a FEV1 of 93 percent perdicted said I had reactive airways. My major complaint is chest pain, and as I said to my MD, painful breathing is lousy breathing. Painful breathing causes your breathing to frequently feel guarded. Basicaly, I have muscle tension and pain in the neck muscles, shoulders, muscles involved in breathing on the sides, back and front of rib cage.
They dr. determined it was chest wall pain/costochondritis (Tietze's Synddrome).An inflammation of the cartilage of one or more ribs.Pain is caused by movement that change the positioning of the ribs, lying down, bending over, coughing or sneezing. Pain may mimic that of coronary artery disease.This disorder is common in young adults, but occurs in all age groups.Rest, use heating pad or ice massage affected area, you can use aspirin or ibuprofen for 5-7 days only. Hope this helped.

Sharp shooting pains, soreness and just pain. I have FM also and have been dxed with costochrondritis, chest wall pain. I have read that is very common with people with FM, plus have also read where it is actually FM of the chest wall. My Dr. told me press around the area and it hurts more it is not heart, you cannot reproduce heart pain. It is scarey though and I have been getting this for years.
Everything you mention can be treated so don't get too worked up, this could be nothing. Are you experiencing any symptoms like chest pain, SOB ect? Let us know.
Hi There can be many causes of pain in the chest- cardiac, gastrointestinal, trauma related, pulmonary, fracture ribs, etc. Chest pain from a muscle strain or rib fracture can be caused by coughing. You should consult your doctor for a complete physical examination to rule out any cardiac causes or in case you have fractured your ribs.
Some patients can live many years with this disease, some die young and a small percentage of patients are transplanted if the disease is very severe (Grade III- Grade IV Classification). Patients have chest pain, are short of breath (SOB) and have dizziness and fatigue, sometimes severe. Hope this helps.
i suffer alot form chest pain on the left habd side and my doctor says i pulled a chest muscle it feels like im gunna have a heart attack and i am very tired and dizzy aswell and week with it my bloods came bak ok this is really gettin me down!
This will reduce inflamation and also any pain. Also you might consider a chest wrap to help support the muscle. These are all short term solution. Healing will only occur over time (3 to 6 weeks depending upon severity).
BEFORE THIS WEEKEND, HE HAS COMPLAINED ABOUT PAIN TO HIS LEFT LATERAL CHEST. HE THOUGHT IT WAS POSSIBLY A PULLED MUSCLE FROM OVEREXCERSIZING. MAYBE NOT RELATED, BUT, HE HAS HAD INTENSE PAIN AT HIS NECK AND SHOULDER AREA AT NIGHT WHILE IN BED. HE THINKS THIS MAY BE BURCITIS. HE IS VERY FIT AND TONED. HE EXCERSIZES REGULARLY AND IS AN AVID TENNIS PLAYER. COULD YOU PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR OPINION?
THIS HAPPENED AGAIN THE NEXT DAY. NO EPISODES TODAY OR YESTERDAY. HOWEVER, HE HAS BEEN COMPLAING OF A PAIN TO HIS LEFT CHEST WALL FOR ABOUT A WEEK. HE THINKS MAYBE IT IS A PULLED MUSCLE. I'M THINKING IT IS RELATED TO THE CLICKING NOISE. HAS ANYONE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO THEM OR KNOW SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THIS EXTERNAL AUDIBLE CLICKING NOISE THAT COINSIDES WITH HIS HEARTBEAT?
There are a lot of posts on this site about chest wall pain, if you do a search you will find them. This is quite frightening to have as you never know what is going on. my cardio and my g/p both say if you press and rhe pain gets worse it not cardiac pain, that can't be reproduced.
Chest pain can originate from chest wall (bone, muscle or skin), esophagus, heart, lungs, tissue linings surrounding the lungs (the inflammation of which is known as pleurisy or pleuritis). Sometimes problems with neck, spine, gall bladder, liver or stomach may also cause chest pain. Usually it is difficult to decide what to do when you have chest pain.
It can be due to hypertension,Gastroesophageal reflux disease(do you have heart burn and difficulty in swallowing), disorders involving the lung like Pneumonia, pulmonary embolism etc, lung cancer, thoracic outlet syndrome,pancreatitis,gall bladder disease and muscle pain. Sometimes, a cervical disk may irritate the nerve roots going to the chest wall and produce chronic chest pain that is aggravated by walking and certain body positions.This cervical root irritation can also cause dizziness.
My first thought is that you've pulled a muscle in your chest wall which is exacerbated when you reach for the alarm. If you're thinking heart attack, trust me, a heart attack will show up without the alarm clock! That you feel this pain periodically during the day also makes me think you've simply pulled a muscle. Can you think back to what you're doing when you feel this pain? Are you reaching for something? Picking something up? Is your body in an odd position?
Anyone here know about perhaps if lung pluera can 'adhere' to chest wall muscle after trauma, or something like it?
