I am 7months pregnant and having weird chest pains

It usually starts at nite. pain starts in whole chest then radiates up my neck and to the side of my head it is bad enough that I quit breathing in an attempt to ease the discomfort for a second.I have had an ekg ,a stress test. both came up neg. for anything.Anyone have an idea what is goin on with me ? ok doc has already checked me for gerd (neg) but has me on Prilosec just to be sure. No burning feeling,just a crushing sensation, like I am being expanded from the inside out.like reverse crush. And I always eat before 6:30pm and go to bed around 10pm. comes and goes. will come on. last for a minute and then go away for a minute then come back again. does this pretty much all night. but not every nite.

You might have some compression of a nerve root in your back since the only time you state you get this pain is at night.You have covered the obvious sources such as cardiac and gi. Your pregnant so you should not get x-rays unless in an emergency. You could see a chiroprator for an assessment only or physiotherapist. Your famiy Dr could send you for nerve conduction studies or to a neurologist. I've hurt my back and I've gone through the same thing, it's not pleasant.Does the pain stay constant or does it ease off?

I have pain on the left of my left chest. Doesn t seem to be my breast which looks and feels normal when I examine it. The pain is not sudden or sharp but feels more like background pain behind my breast. It can be stimulated by breathing in or out deeply especially if the breath is forced out and feels on the left side of left breast where it meets the chest wall. I have had muskulosketal problems with my upper back and neck where tendons feel very tight despite exercises and stretches. Physio treatment was very effective in improving matters and I do Pilates and yoga now but some tightness remains around my neck and shoulders. When I pull my shoulder back and forth I feel this chest pain especially if I m vigorous about it and my shoulder feels slightly stiff after lying on it which is a new symptom. I am female, life long non-smoker, virtually tee-total, 164cm, 70kg, age 51, periods stared to be irregular last summer (2 in 7 months). Being widowed I am not pregnant (no sexual activity). I m not on any medication and have good exercise tolerance although could be fitter. This particular pain has been around for a few weeks and I couldn t account for it (no heavy lifting or such-like) but I saw an advert about breast cancer saying pain might be the only symptom. Consequently I am pretty worried and thought it could be any other form of cancer too like something on my chest wall. I wouldn t normally look on-line for answers but thought I d have a look for possible causes and came across this site. I have a GP appointment on Monday.

Hello, I am a 20 year old female. I have been having chest pains for about a week now and I am pretty scared about what is wrong. In addition to the chest pains I have been burping a lot weird because I usually don t burp at all, and my left arm down to my middle finger has pains sometimes. I m not sure if that is related because I do hair a lot so for years sometimes my hands cramp up. Also, some background, I have asthma and 2 weeks before this started my asthma had gotten so bad that I had developed bronchitis. The coughing had put a lot of stress on my chest as well but the pain had went away after I took some medication. Some more background is that I had gained around 40 pounds in the last 10 months from inactivity (I used to do sports for 6 years & then stopped). Lastly, I thought the chest pain was from me crying a lot because I had a traumatic event recently and the pain came right after and got worse everyday that I was crying really hard. Sorry it s such a long message but as you can see, I have a lot of factors playing right now so I m really all over the place in terms of finding out what is wrong with me. Thank you in advance!

I am certain that gas build up in my stomach is causing my heart to skip beats and causing tachycardia. I have gas and belching that can last for hours. I take prilosec with no effect. The skipping heartbeat is very annoying. Doctor says there is nothing wrong with my heart. I have had this for many years. I am 57.
