My husband is having pains in his chest underneath his chest

My husband is having pains in his chest underneath his left breast?
My husband has been having chest pains today, and he says it is mainly near his left breast. Says the pain is to the left of it and a tad underneath it and that it feels like pins and needles/shards of glass. He has had chest pains in the past as well, but nothing ever came of it. He does not want to go see a doctor, but I am trying to convince him he should go ~ he thinks it may be stress. Also, he does physical labor for work and is very hard on his body. When I asked him if his arm was tingling and numb, he said it is always like that because of his job. I am pretty sure if he was having a heart attack, this arm pain would be noticeably different, but I could be wrong. Can anyone give me some advice on what this may be? Thank you!

it may be due to muscular sprain or hyperacidity since you have already ruled out any cardiac cause behind it.There may be a chance of somatoform disorder also due to anxiety.More counselling is needed with patient like time of pain, duration,intesity,nature etc.

Hi doc, I ve had an asd repair about 4 months ago I m 22 years old and weigh 160 lbs , but I m getting frequent chest pains and they become stronger as time goes on. My cardiologist says it probably inflammation but I doubt that as the pain I feel is the same pain I used to have before I knew I had an asd. What do u figure can be the problem? I also have constant dizziness and arm pain.

My 14 yr. old is having extreme burping, we have been to the ER and got no results. She was previously diagnosed with a Lyles Heart murmur or musical murmur. She is 5 9 , 138 pounds, active with basketball and dance. She complains of lightheadedness, chest pain in upper left quadrant, left arm pain and she says she feels like her heart is racing at random times. She can t inhale or exhale deeply without burps, and they are constant and persistant. She has had a normal sonogram of the liver, kidneys, gall bladder. Do you have any suggestions? We are frustrated. In the ER she had low potassium and low BUN, she has also been diagnosed with chillblains on the fingers and toes, negative antigen test for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis.

Hello. About a week ago, a rash that looks to come from an allergy appeared on my arm. My doctors could not find what I was allergic to through multiple tests. However, that is not the concern. Beginning yesterday, the rash split at certain parts on my arm, revealing the skin underneath, and has been profusely leaking clear pus. I have no pain in my arm, and it is functional, however m still worried. What do I need to do to insure this recovery, and do I need to go to the doctor?
