389732 tn?1212519993 I've been having chest pain on my left side sort of right under the rib and I'm not sure what is it? I've had it for almost two years now. I never went to look it up because I thought maybe it's just something minor, but it keeps happening.

Avatar n tn I'm 35 weeks 5 days pregnant and I started getting a sharp pain on the left side of my chest in the middle of the night last night when I would roll from side to side.

I've googled it and read several different things it could be.

Avatar f tn Hi, I am 27 years and over the last year and a half I have been experiencing this sharp pain in what feels like the left hand side of my heart. It is approximately half way up my rib cage on the left hand side and about an hour and a half to two hours later I started to get a really heavy slow heart beat. Is anyone able to tell me what this could be??
Avatar f tn s are for. I have a hiatal hernia and it gives me chest pain in the mid-left side, pretty bad at that. One thing you can do in the meantime is keep an eye on your BP and heart rate, but definitely see your Dr.

Avatar f tn I started to feel good about what you said, but then while I was christmas shopping today I suddenly got a really sharp burning pain in my back and chest on the left side. It got so bad that I had to sit down and chlench myself and I was crying. A few minutes after that I got a really bad palpitation and I got tingles going down my body and I started to black out for a second. At that point I knew I was having a heart attack.
Avatar f tn I have been having chest pain, sometimes dull, sometimes sharp in my right side (to the left of my right breast). Sometimes I feel it in my shoulder and back. I have had an EKG in the past and nothing....I also am the bill of health except for some high cholesterol like a year ago. I have changed my diet and excercised since. I am 5'-4" and 142 pounds. I look about 130 though so a lot of my weight is muscle.

215289 tn?1253623341 As of a couple of hours ago, when im lying on my side i keep getting a sharp shooting pain up my left hand side near my heart, but not when i lie on my back. I do have a driving test tomorrow but doesn't seem like it could cause this through stress/worry? Had a ct scan of the head 2 weeks back and haven't had word either, no news is good news? Maybe im just going over the top i dont know :( If its not one thing its another.
Avatar f tn a few times over the last couple of weeks I have had this intense stabbing pain either on the left side or right side of my chest. Last night it was so bad that it woke me up from sleep. It only lasted about a minute then goes away. Once I start moving around it seems to go away. No other symptoms with it, other than the ones I create from my panic:) Is this something I should go back to my cardiologist with even though he told me that my heart was in great shape?
789873 tn?1236732293 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...
Avatar m tn Hey there, ive been having some general chest/abdominal pains recently (for about 2 weeks now) in my left upper abdomen/ lower chest area. Itt's mostly dull, ache type pain but can be sharp. In fact, last night i was woken out of my sleep with the same sharp pain, but felt on the other side at about the same height, the right side.
7485098 tn?1391264953 I got really bad chest pain on my left side. It lasted most of the day… but my doctor said it would be due to my pregnant or alleges.
Avatar m tn Within the last week or so, I've been getting sharp pains within my left arm. This usually happens when I bend it a certain way or put pressure on it. In addition I've also been getting a "heavy" feeling on my left side of my chest where the heart is located. It's not painful, and it's not hard to breathe but I know this can't be good right? I recently had this "heavy" feeling about a few minutes ago, and is why I am creating this question.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar f tn I suffer with sharp chest pains on the left and right side of my chest and also my chest tightens from the centre. I've had a few times where it is a dull ache just behind my heart which lasts for a second or two then goes and then all of a sudden I'll get this heat wave come over me and my heart starts racing and then I want to faint, and when I try and take deep breaths in, it feels thick and that I can't get any oxygen in, then I'm light headed and dizzy.
Avatar f tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest pain and referred pain to left shoulder. A CT scan of the chest can rule out both. Chances are that you could be having gastro esophageal reflux (GERD), where the food in your stomach is thrown up into your food pipe or esophagus. This also causes burning sensation or discomfort in the chest area.
Avatar f tn for the past 2 nights i have been woken with a sharp pain in my left side under my chest bone, this has then moved into my arm making it feel weak as though the blood isnt flowing properly, i have put off going to emergancy rooms as i feel that i am just going to be told its my anxiety.
