237053 tn?1258828426 For the last few days I've developed intermittant chest pain (left side) right where my heart it. It isn't severe, just kinda achy. It comes and goes, but I'm kinda concerned about it. I'm having it right now accompanied with air hunger. Very uncomfortable. Does anyone else get this? What causes it? I'm going in this morning to see dr and will be interested to see what she says. How can they deny that I am clearly having problems?
Avatar f tn Costochondritis is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone (sternum). It causes sharp pain in the costosternal joint — where your ribs and breastbone are joined by rubbery cartilage. Pain caused by costochondritis may mimic that of a heart attack or other heart conditions. Your doctor might refer to costochondritis by other names, including chest wall pain, costosternal syndrome and costosternal chondrodynia.

Avatar f tn I also notice that I have a painful tugging feeling when I try to look down in the same area of my upper back. Last night in my sleep I woke up with a chest pain right in my breastbone area. It felt like a heavy burning tingling burning pain. I just rolled over onto my chest with my arms tucked in under my chest and waited it for it to pass. This morning when I woke up I felt very tired and my muscles in my arms felt weak. Anyone that can help me with this?
Avatar f tn I suddenly got up from a sitting position and experienced a sudden burning under my breastbone followed by dizziness, right arm pain and dizziness. It went away withing 3 to 4 minutes. I just had blood work done and a heart scan that was ok. I ate a salad with lots of veggies for dinner. Could this be heartburn or should I suspect a heart attack?
1448748 tn?1312956208 Ok I'm dumb,i should have asked dr oro this, but I forgot. I have had several bouts of chest pain over the last year and my heart has been checked out and I've had several ct scans they could never find the cause. I do have a higher risk for blood clots but never have had one. I'm experiencing chest pain ib a band like sensation. Its like pressure. The worst part is in between my shoulder blades among the right side of my spine only. It hurts to breathe deep.
Avatar m tn When ever I hold my breath and let all the wind out of my lungs and squeeze my chest it will give me pain on and around my sternum. If I turn my head sharply I will feel pain on the right side. But what hurts me the most is when I push down on my sternum or pull an object into my sternum. Nothing shows up in xrays and the doctors just keep sending me away without telling me anything. Does anyone know what this could be? It also does hurt in my back on the right side when everything hurts.
1520638 tn?1291068936 As Selma has pointed out there are related conditions that can cause Chest pain, because CM can involves the spinal cord it is plausible that your Chest pain is nerve related. A call to your GP, NL or NS would be wise :) Keep us posted.
1127040 tn?1289718662 can angina (stable or unstable) cause pain in ribs as well ? ribs and/or breastbone ?
Avatar m tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities causing shortness of breath with chest pain. Another possibility that can explain the pain is pericarditis. However all these conditions cause other symptoms too like fever, cough, breathlessness etc. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn last night i felt alot of pain in my left side of my chest and the pain increases with mov't and breathing so i thought this is anew problem coz the side is above the heart or may be the heart its self so that i need ur advice.....
Avatar f tn There could be alot a different things going on there. The pain traveling from under the breastbone to the back is a serious indication of a problem that needs immediate medical attention. Good Luck. I hope it is not that serious.
Avatar f tn Recently, the stomach compulsions have been getting worse,and so have the chest pains which I think is Acid-Reflux. I start experiencing severe pain in the upper portion of my abdomen, just under my breastbone, and It feels somewhat like a cramp and is very uncomfortable and I vomit blood. If I drink heavily the night before, my body feels like I worked out severely and ran a marathon. The body aches worsen and are very painful and sore.
Avatar n tn s time to see a doctor. Never ignore chest pain and now pain in your back and shoulders. Please get in and see someone today.
Avatar n tn Pleuritis and Pulmonary embolism are other possibilities of chest pain. A CT scan of the chest can rule out both. Another possibility that can explain the pain is pericarditis. It causes chest pain aggravated by laughing yawning and deep breathing and also causes radiation of pain to arms. Again an EKG, heat echo and chest X-ray is required. If all these are ruled out, then it can be due to acidity. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime.
