Brief Answer: Atypical pain for heart problems,breast exam.... Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I read your query very carefully. You are having pain under your left breast and up and down your breast, which is more intense when you are lying down. The pain you are describing is atypical for heart problems and seems more related to breast or musculoskeletal problems. So I recommend doing a breast examination and a breast ECHO to exclude any breast problem. However I suggest running the following examinations, to exclude the cardiac origin of the pain: - Blood work - Chest X ray - ECG - Cardiac ECHO - Holter monitoring - Stress test Hope it was of help!
