I get a pain in my shoulder when I take a deep breath. Laying on my left side increases the pain. My shoulder also just feels uncomfortable. Not a constant pain but more like pressure or tenderness maybe in joint.
If I am having some minor pain under my left breast (I am a male) does it mean that I have lung cancer. Or could it be something simple like gastro related?
Just wondering if anyone had any advice.. When I yawn I have severe pain in my left chest.. I'm not sure if it is a muscle that is strained or pulled or if its something serious I should see a doctor about? Maybe acid reflux or something? It only happens when I yawn and its not constant.. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.. THANKS!
My GP thought the pain was more in line with a fibrocystic breast so she sent me to a breast specialist/surgeon. He assured me that my breast was normal & again said it was probably "arthritis in the ribs." So I tried ibroprufen 3x/day for about a month, no relief. Then I tried naproxen 3x/day for a month. Still no relief. So far I have been unable to find any concrete info concerning "arthritis of the ribs.
its in chest and right under left rib cage it started in my upper left side right under my ribs thats why my doc thought it was intestional now it hurts all the way up to my left arm like someone socked me in my left breast and its sore.
When I breathe deeply, I feel quite sharp pain in the back of my left lung/side and a smaller amount of pain in the front of my left side just below my heart. I am a 19yr old female and I dont smoke or drink, although I have lived my life around a smoker. This pain started last night randomly and came literally out of nowhere, it hurts when I change position of my left arm but its not muscle strain as I havent done anything strenuous to my body.
Years ago I began having pain in my shoulder blade at night if I slept on my back or left side for too long. It would be extremely sharp and painful if I took a deep breath and it would shoot from the shoulder blade out through my left breast. Initially this was infrequent and would go away when I changed position. Over the years it became more frequent until it was occurring every night. Once it started I cold not lay on my back or left side the rest of the night.
He looked at me and in an exclamatory voice said You definitely are having breast pain from the muscles in your chest wall!! Then he went on to explain how pain can radiate and how the nerves are affected and how the breasts are included in the whole scheme of things. My mammograms are clear. I do get microcalcifications, had a few removed, henceforth scars, but no cancer, thank God. Have no fear, this is normal for fibro sufferers.
Sharp Upper Back pain - posted 8/27/2004 You may have the same thing. When I had pain when breathing I used a humidifier treatment and it worked for me.
Did you have antibiotics prior to giving birth? You could have a yeast infection IN you milk ducts...I did and the breast pain was excrutiating! BUT it went undiagnosed for almost 2m because I didn't show any signs on my nipples... Your chills etc sound mastitis-ish though... Maybe a day of rest will help BUT if your breasts keep hurting, see a dr... read this and see if it seems like your symptoms...

5 days before while walking a sharp pain started in my left side under ribs maybe in lungs. while inhaleing a sharp pain starts. pain only happen only in deep breathing . i feel like safocation sometime.
Excruciating in and under my left breast almost completely relieved as I sat up and held my self still. Breathing was excruciating. I was in so much pain I was headed to the hospital when it suddenly quit, or at least was greatly relieved.I was so afraid of another attack I slept sitting up. Last night was the worst I have ever had, I have had it last for just a few minutes or until I have changed positions. I honestly believe it is trapped gas or something.
Then yesterday I went and got properly fitted for a new more expensive one hoping that would help but after wearing it for another night and day it seems to of got worse and my whole left breast now feels painful it is very painful when I even walk now I can feel the pain in my left breast with every step. It also looks much more swollen than the right although the scars look fine.
Chest pain can occur for a number of reasons – some as simple as a gas bubble or pulled muscle to a serious heart problem. A 5 mm spot, in most cases, would be unlikely to cause pain. Since the pain is new and has not resolved, the right thing to do is have it evaluated. As it was the weekend, the ER would have been the best choice.
I have the same upper left breast pain. (under arm pit) I also feel it once and a while on the right side as well. I just recently changed jobs and am experiencing a lot of stress. Thought it could be a heart issue, however I'm only 34 and in pretty good shape. (Played high school sports as a kid) After reading the above I've come to realize that the increased stress and anxiety (new job, new baby, etc.) may cause you to worry at little more that you should.
im sick of going to doctors and them telling me its musckular pain when i know its not.

3 days ago I began feeling movement in my left sided abd area. It feel just like it felt when I was pregnant and the baby would take his foot and push out on the abd. It is located just below my breast. It feels like a rippling effect and I am having this feeling pretty often. It is painless. However, at the same time I am having this painless feeling in front, I am having sharp pain on the left side of my back. It feels like it is between my rib cage. Thank you in advance.
I just began having a sharp pain on my left side under my breast(not part of the tissue though) and above the rib. It hurts really bad and I can't even breathe without it causing me a ton of pain. Have no insurance and can't go to Dr. Help please.
