Bascially, whenever i clench my chest muscles or take a deep breath I get a sharp pain on both sides of my chest. Does anyone know what it might be. I have a cough at times too. Im pretty sure it is not cardiac related. Its not really bad just been there for a week or so now.
I get a sharp pain in my left chest about 1 inch and a 1/2 inside my left breast when I do something swiftly with my left arm, such as lifting something or tightening my belt with my left hand. What could that mean? ( I had a cardiac triple bypass surgery 3 years ago).
When I run each mourning about 10 minutes into my work out I will get a sharp pain just below my left nipple. The pain will radiate half way around my back to just below my left shoulder blade. After about a three minutes the pain will go away and not return. Can you provide me with any causes??
The chest pain is located closer to the middle of my chest by on the left side and right where my ribs end. The most painful thing to do is lie down/sleep and when I sit up I still have the chest pains but there are not as sharp. These pains last about 20 seconds to a minuet and are happening every couple of minuets. Could you please give me some idea of what it might be thats causing me so much pain and what I can do to make it go away?
It manifests itself as a very intense, sharp pain, typically at the left side of the chest, which is worse when taking breaths. Patients often think that they are having a heart attack which causes them to panic. This pain typically lasts from 30 seconds to a few minutes. Though some episodes last just a few breaths, in rare cases they can persist for up to 30 minutes. In most cases the pain is resolved quickly and completely. The cause of PCS is unknown.

Pain in Middle of Chest (like a pullling and sharp pain) from time to time for about 2 years now. I had a Chest scan a couple years ago and they saw nothing and assumed a pulled muscle. I thought pulled muscles heal. If pain is not shooting through it all I have to do is press down on area and can feel pain. Anything other than Ibuprofen for a suggestion for a cure? Thanks.
Your symptoms are vague, but if your pain persists for more than a few days, it is worth seeing your doctor. There are a lot of possible causes for this type of pain (i.e. gas pain, lung infection, pulled muscle, etc.). A doctor/ health care practitioner can evaluate the pain and help figure out what is causing it. I hope this helps and if you still have the pain, get it checked out. Good luck.
When scalene muscle is the cause of pain, the pain is referred to chest, inner lining of scapula (shoulder bone), shoulder, posterior and lateral sides of the arm right up to the thumb and index finger.
For the past many months I have been feeling sudden sharp pain in my left side of the chest near where the heart is, and there already have been several occasional occurances already. It only lasts for several seconds, and every time when that happens, when I lift my left arm to stretch out, it feels like something there is stretching, and it goes away after a few seconds.
Hi, I also get a lot of chest discommfort in the upper chest area and the ribs below my breast. 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.
You must leave the house. Fresh air and walking are very important !! Sharp pain as I understand is always a muscle pain not the heart. I used to have those sharp pains, as a kid and as a young, can be very painful, I know. , after I learned the right breathing, and did it regularly they stopped. Always remember your heart is healthy. You must believe it, all the tests are good!
feeling that I know is my heart, but it seems to be much less when no caffeine. I also noticed that every once in awhile I will get this really sharp pain kinda on the side of my left breast close to my chest area. When this happens its very sharp and only last a few seconds to a minute or two. But while this is happening If I sit real still and dont take deap breaths I dont really feel it, but as soon as I move or try to take a deep breath it really shoots the pain.
I seem to get them in my left chest area, a stabbing feeling and the deeper I breathe the greater the pain is. It has now moved all around my left chest and into the side of my torso and left back and sometimes in my left arm as well... I'm petrified of these pains and they make me extremely stressed. I'm always fearing that they're related to some sort of heart attack thing and I'm going to die... I sometimes shake and get a cold sweat when these pains occur, absolutely terrifying.
I have also in the past 24 hours been having a sharp pain on my left side of my chest, and am not sure whether that could be possibly linked? Also, what do you think I should do next? Thanks.
QUOTE: "Sometimes walk up the stairs 30 times, which gets my sysyem going but don't suffer any pains. In the recent freezing temps we have had in UK I have walked and jogged in the park and had no problems". But why do I get pains when I relax in bed or twist or stretch myself? Also when I cough I get the pain in the sternum area.
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.
My niece was sitting next to me and wanted to hold the baby so I turned and put the baby in her arms. Just then I felt a really sharp pain in my chest. From that point on it hurts and feels bruised to the touch. I am really sore and cannot turn left to right. Also when I sneeze or laugh it hurts. It is hard to sleep on my sides because of the pain and bruising. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? I really hate going to the doctors if I dont need to.

For about a year now, I've been periodically experiencing sharp pains in my upper left chest area. It feels as though the root of the pain comes from beneath my left breast. The pain is sharper when I breathe. It is more intense when I breath deeper, but it is still sharp even when I breath lightly. The pain becomes more intense when I make a movement that involves me moving that area of my body. The sharp pains last for 15 minutes to an hour at a time.
I am 18 and having this sharp pain under my left breast, and I am not sure if it is something serious or not
