I would go and see a doctor pronto for a checkup and reassurance. Could just be heartburn, but just in case ...

I have a pain when ever I breath deeply on my upper left side on my chest an inch or two below my collarbone. I am female 18 I weight around 220 and I m 5 6. My father has recently had a heart attack which is why this scares me. I don t have anything really wrong with be besides the chest pain and I have a pinched nerve in my neck but that is it l. What do you think the chest pain could be?

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.

Hi. About a year ago i started having occasional chest pain. Sometimes on the right side and sometimes on the left. I went to the doctor and I was told that it was nothing to worry about. In the past year I have had this pain come and go but in the past few weeks more often than not I have had atleast a small amount of tightness in my chest, mostly on the left side. When the pain is at its worst breathing in deeply increases the pain. Also while the pain is bad extending out my left arm to grab something can cause a sharp increase in pain momentarily. I have noticed that the pain is typically more intense after smoking marijuana. Do you have any ideas what this could be?

I'm 33 years old with low blood pressure every time I get it checked. The low blood pressure has been going on for years. I just thought I normally have low blood pressure. It was 92/50 las time it was checked. I am 5'2" 165lbs. I gained 15lbs with my pregnancy. My delivery lasted 33 hours and was very stressful. I have loridosis, back pain, heat sensations in my left leg, chest pain and shortness of breath. I just recently went to get checked out by the doctor about dizzy spells and my heart stopping and rapidly starting back. I was diagnosed with RBBB. I'm really scared, because I can feel that my heart is not working like it should. I have a lot of stress with family matters and I would say since I was 13 I've had ongoing high anxiety. I know that is not healthy. What would you say are the reasons that I have RBBB.
